Welcome to Padua!

Padua's school motto, "Suaviter sed Fortiter," translates as "Softly, but Strongly" and describes the qualities of an educated woman: nurturing and responsive to the uniqueness of others, yet purposeful and determined, accepting a responsible role in the global community.  At the heart of Padua's education are our four pillars:  spirituality, scholarship, service and sisterhood.  We hope you find your place on Broom Street!
