Brigidine College St Ives is a Catholic Independent Secondary School for Girls, located on Mona Vale Road at St Ives.  Founded by the Brigidine Sisters over 60 years ago, the school models the charism of St Brigid, Fortiter et Suaviter – strength and gentleness.

With 900 girls currently enrolled, the College attracts students from the North Shore, the Forest area, Northern Beaches and across to Sydney’s North West.

The College prides itself on providing a holistic education for girls combining the academic, spiritual, physical and cultural dimensions of learning.  With outstanding academic results, a high level of achievement in the performing arts and sport and a strong commitment to service, girls at Brigidine are challenged to think and experience beyond their boundaries, to have the courage to question their world, to be true to themselves and to honour their spiritual heritage.

As part of its extensive cocurricular program, Brigidine is renowned for its Centre for Excellence which offers a wide range of activities where student leadership is optimised.  The Centre provides exciting opportunities for theatre production, AV technology, BrigFest film festival, debating, public speaking, competitions such as Festival of Speech, Tournament of Minds, Robotics, Mock Trial, Future Problem Solving and more.

Brigidine also offers an impressive Honours Program which is designed to energise and motivate interested learners and develop leadership.  The program aims to encourage multidimensional thinking, creativity and depth of analysis.  During Honours tutorials, students explore a wide range of philosophical notions, scientific concerns and political debates.  In a safe environment, girls are called upon to reflect on their own learning styles and confidently and clearly express their views.
