We strive to help students in their senior school journey by allowing them to match their hopes and dreams with their talents and strengths.
Loyola Senior High School offers multiple pathways for students to meet their diverse needs, interests and abilities. From early subject course at University level to vocational and trade training programs we encourage students to pursue the right path of study to give them multiple qualifications on school completion. We welcome diversity in culture, tradition and talent, and celebrate the richness each person brings to the whole community.
Mount Druitt University Hub
Loyola Senior High School has an Academic Advisor located on the school grounds at Mount Druitt, to work with students from Loyola and the wider community.
The Academic Advisor and the Careers Advisor work very closely to identify and explore numerous pathways for our students beyond school. The Academic Advisor from the hub also provides our students with on-site assistance to university applications, scholarships, enrolments and post school follow-ups.
