Sophia Mundi is a unique compliment to the educational landspace of Melbourne city, offering a full Steiner curriculum from Prep to Year 10 and The International Baccalaureate for the Senior School Years 11 and 12. These two curricular elements complement each other perfectly, developing a holistic world view which allows students to enter the realms of higher learning or venture into the world in a confident and purposeful way.  We also facilitate a Playgroup and maintain close links with Little Sophia Steiner Kindergarten.

The school is a member of Steiner Education Australia and The International Baccaulaureate World School. This is a first in Australia and places Sophia Mundi at the forefront of contemporary school practice in a demanding and competitive educational environment, while maintaining an authentic Steiner pedagogy.

We share a five-acre site in the city of Melbourne, within the beautiful grounds of the Abbotsford Convent, adjacent to the Collingwood Children’s Farm and are enfolded by a meander in the Yarra River.

All this makes for a unique school environment, complemented by the delivery of a creative and academic curriculum by dedicated and committed teachers; and supported by school staff and a parent community, we believe that Sophia Mundi is a truly unique learning opportunity for all students.

Sophia Mundi is a proud partner with ‘Australian Organic Schools’ (see video) through the sponsopship of our organic vegetable garden which supports the school organic canteen operated by the parents. This is a great venture which attracts a lot of interest from both within the school and the greater community, supporting good heath and well-being.

We hold school tours on the first Tuesday of each month which comprise a short talk on Steiner Education and a walk through the classrooms while the lessons are happening. This offers a comprehensive in-house view of the learning in progress. We welcome bookings and of course if these dates don’t suit your busy schedules please feel free to contact the office and book an initial interview with myself. I always look forward to meeting new parents and showing them our wonderful school.

Please search through our website as it is full of information and photos relevant to our school.
