Leading in girls’ education based on their four pillars of foundation – Christian faith, community, participation and leadership, Roseville seeks to equip each girl to be a person of character with a deep sense of purpose and a love of learning. With a strong focus on academic excellence through utilising contemporary pedagogical practices coupled with an innovative curriculum, the College seeks to inspire each girl to strive for her best. The underpinning values of truth, love and hope are deeply rooted in the Christian faith and guide the College in all that it does.
