Established by the Sisters of Charity in 1881, Bethlehem College has
a rich and proud tradition of educating young women. The Sisters administered
the College for 110 years and their values and commitment are the foundations
of College life today. The College motto Este Fideles (“Be Faithful”) is lived
and put into practice every day as students and teachers strive to be faithful
to God, to themselves and to each other.
Within the Catholic tradition, Bethlehem aims to develop confident
young women with positive self images and courageous, independent and enquiring
minds, with a genuine concern for others. Bethlehem is committed to the
development of young women who value themselves, who are concerned about
significant issues in the world as they relate to justice, peace and the
environment and who value prayer and the reality of God in their lives.
