Equity Scholarship Program

As the largest Catholic girls’ school in Geelong, we continue to uphold the vision and guiding principles of our foundress, Catherine McAuley. Catherine believed in the education of women. She appreciated the unique contribution they were capable of making on behalf of society and she wanted to empower them ­– in whatever sphere they found themselves ­– to affect a shift towards a more just society.

Celebrating 160+ years of Mercy education, Sacred Heart College Geelong still seeks to provide greater learning opportunities for those in need through our Equity Scholarship Program.

For further details regarding the College’s scholarship programs, please contact Ebony Courtney, College Admissions Officer on 5222 0490.

To ensure our school promotes an inclusive curriculum that reflects the cultural, linguistic and religious diversity of Greater Geelong, we have developed a new Inclusion and Diversity Scholarship program.

Inclusion and Diversity Scholarship Program

For refugee families, experiencing a new country and culture and understanding the education system can be very challenging. In fact, it is often the primary barrier to student learning.

The College’s new Inclusion and Diversity Scholarship program welcomes, enables and supports refugee children to learn in a nurturing environment. Opportunities are now available for refugees to apply for a fully-funded scholarship that will allow them to explore cultures and beliefs that may be different from their own.

The scholarship provides:

  • Personalised transition programs
  • Pastoral support groups for students and their families
  • A new arrivals’ program that offers intensive English as an Additional Language (EAL)
  • Social/emotional learning programs, counselling, mentoring and ‘buddy’ supports as well as refugee family engagement.
