Introducing Roseville College
Roseville College is an Anglican School for Girls in Kindergarten to Year 12.
Founded in 1908, Roseville College is well established and features a welcoming school community of 800 girls.
Roseville College upholds a mission to provide girls with a contemporary, dynamic and relevant learning experience marked by a passion for excellence, and grounded in the ethos and values of the Christian faith.
The Vision of Roseville College is to encourage and enable every girl to reach her potential, and nurture her towards being a woman rich in character, wisdom, faith and action, with a heartfelt commitment to service within the wider community.
Roseville College is a non-selective school which enjoys consistently strong co-curricular and academic results, culminating in the HSC. Importantly, our graduates credit the School with developing in them qualities such as optimism, a spirit of inquiry, wisdom and personal accountability, a concern for others, and the courage and confidence to ?have a go?.
At Roseville College girls are encouraged to explore academic, sporting, creative, leadership, community and personal development opportunities throughout their schooling. Consequently, they develop a strong sense of belonging, ownership and connection to the College and one another.
