Loretto College focuses on participation and involvement in a supportive Christian academic community and welcomes students from all backgrounds and faiths. The foundations of this community are mutual respect and the encouragement and the fostering of an environment conducive to study, and to personal and social development.
Loretto encourages an atmosphere where all students can grow in wisdom, tolerance and concern for others.
