Loreto Normanhurst provides a holistic education in which a student is challenged to develop her capacity for self reflection as she engages in the learning process. A holistic education is one in which students need to be active community members, to work effectively with peers and teachers, to have a strong faith which guides their decision making and underpins their values and to strive to achieve their personal academic best. It is an education that believes balance between these elements is the key to healthy, productive life.

And so a holistic education at Loreto Normanhurst is one is which all elements of FACE (Faith, Academic, Community and Extra Curricular) are present in the education of young people.

The NSW Board of Studies determines mandatory courses that all secondary schools in the state must complete. Additionally here at Loreto Normanhurst students have the opportunity to study a range of electives from Years 9 to 12, ranging from the creative arts to languages, humanities and sports sciences.

Students also study school based courses which are credentialed on the School Certificate. They are courses that have been developed at the school and approved by the Board of Studies. One of these courses is a Religious Education course that is grounded in Ignatian spirituality as well as incorporating a comparative religions course. Another school based course is Integrated Learning. In Integrated Learning students undertake, through a series of tasks that focus on real world situations, to develop the skills of independent and life long learning. These skills focus on the effective use of ICT, a range of literacies from word literacy to critical literacy, and the development of EQ skills.
