A proposed new Catholic school will open at the beginning of 2018 to meet the needs of the growing Box Hill community.
Santa Sophia Catholic College will provide an innovative approach to learning and teaching.
At the outset, the new learning community will be open to Year 7 and Year 8 students at a temporary site within the grounds of our Lady of the Angels Primary School in Kellyville.
Executive Director of Schools Greg Whitby is proud that the proposed school will increase the number of local students able to access an up-to-date faith-based education.
“We’re thinking outside the box at Box Hill,” Mr Whitby said.
“This exciting new learning community will take the best we know about education and prepare young people for everything the future holds”.
Once complete, the school will serve 2000 students from preschool to Year 12 and beyond at 40-46 Terry Road, Box Hill.
“Sydney’s North West is a great place to raise a family,” Mr Whitby said.
“We’re committed to working with local mums and dads to provide every student with an outstanding start in life”.
The area boasts a strong network of local Catholic schools including historic St Matthew’s Primary, Windsor and the recently opened St Luke’s Catholic College in Marsden Park.
The proposed school at Box Hill will bring the number of schools in the Diocese of Parramatta to 80.
Applications are being accepted now for Year 7 and 8 students for commencement in 2018.
