The Pascoe Vale Girls’ college motto, “Virtue Kindles Strength”, highlights the dedication to excellence and the pride in the academic, cultural, sporting, leadership and community achievements of the students since 1956. The college has an ethos that fosters the development of self-confident, creative, responsible and intelligent young women who readily take their place in society. Uniform is compulsory.

Three new buildings incorporate the latest in design and equipment: the Administration area, the Academy of the Sciences and the Academy of the Humanities. Meeting, study and assembly areas are also available and well utilised. Student learning is nurtured in a safe and supportive environment.
