Admission to STC

Thank you for your interest in our school, Shung Tak Catholic English College, a Catholic secondary school in the area of Yuen Long, Hong Kong. Our two pillars are being a ‘Catholic’ school and offering a top-notch English environment. We are the first school in Yuen Long to offer an education in English.   

Our school’s motto is ‘Ora et Labora’ or ‘Pray and Work’, the St Benedictine principle which we adhere to. At STC, we have supportive and caring teachers who work together to help each child achieve value-added academic performance, and a well-balanced character and value systems compatible with Catholicism.

We provide an environment where we encourage each and every child to reach his or her full potential. We look forward to working with committed parents who are important as the child’s first teachers. We want our parents to take an active role in supporting us as we provide the best education for their child, and to understand that the school offers a rigorous curriculum as most of our graduates are prepared to pursue higher education.

We welcome applications for our discretionary places in Secondary One which are open in January every year. We believe parents choosing us to educate their child will be making one of the best decisions for their child.

Community Service

At STC, working with our community is a key part of our Catholic education. We continue to promote this as one of the school’s major concerns. It is part of our social responsibility and as we advocate citizenship and volunteerism, we not only get a chance to give back to the community we belong to but we teach our present students one of the most important lessons that they would learn at STC. We are blessed with the many talents by God and we realise these talents as we glorify our Creator with them – by being a contributing member to our neighbours. Love and giving begin with us at STC and extend to working with individuals, groups, community, and the world.
