Scholarship Program

A Santa Sabina education is a gift and a privilege. There is no doubt that the educational experience on offer at our school can set a person up for life. It is transformational, it offers diverse and exceptional opportunities. Our teachers continue to be totally committed to knowing our students and inspiring them to do more and be more than they ever imagined possible. Not everyone can access a Santa education and that is why we offer scholarships to young students who are passionate about being a part of our College community. Our scholarships can make dreams become reality for young people who would otherwise not have the chance to attend our school.

Santa Sabina College offers several scholarships each year, including academic, all-rounder and music for new and current Year 7 students and new Year 10 students. The scholarships vary in covering both full and a percentage of tuition fees. Students who receive scholarships can benefit from the best possible education the school has to offer, while further developing their own unique talents.
