About Us

Cerdon College is a Catholic secondary girls’ school that was founded by and is educating in the tradition of the Marist Sisters.

Cerdon College was established in 1960 and is located in Merrylands, Sydney. In living out the values of Christ, our school celebrates the uniqueness of each person within a diverse community. This is reflected in our school motto ‘In All Things Christ’.

We are committed to providing each student with a learning environment which is comprehensive, inclusive and challenging. We are a multicultural school which seeks to live out the values of Christ in a caring and supportive environment.

We aim to lead our students to an awareness of what it means to be a Christian in the tradition of the Catholic community. The religious teaching and liturgical life of the school underpin the structure of the school curriculum.

Marist pedagogy is essentially personal and is directed towards the good of each individual. It is child-centred and is based on a deep concern for each student, not in isolation but in the total context of their growth to maturity within an environment characterised by a family atmosphere and the Spirit of Mary.
