Our mission

Our mission is to enable students to explore passions and interests and build the confidence they need to lead. We do that through cultivating authenticity, believing that each individual has unique strengths and talents and providing opportunities for them to shine. This builds self-belief and the capability to achieve their goals now and into the future.  Students discover their own unique leadership style and develop a strong narrative about their own style.

We are warm, caring and inclusive – we are like a family. At St Hilda’s no one gets lost, everyone belongs.  We also believe every person has the capacity to lead in their own way, and we will develop each student in that unique discovery.
