Why a Catholic school?

​​​​​​

An education in the fullness of humanity should be the defining feature of Catholic schools.

Pope Francis

​We teach the values that last a lifetime, such as faith, kindness, honesty and compassion.

Your child’s education should not be the same as their classmates. Why? Your child has unique gifts and deserves teachers who seek opportunities for progress, every school day.

Catholic schools offer this and more by not only pursuing academic excellence but excellence in all pursuits.

Of course, academic achievement is important in every school. However, academic achievement alone does not define success in our world.

Your child’s education should not only be measured by tests and scores. Teachers in Catholic schools know a ranking upon graduation is not the sole definition of your child’s success.

Their education should also be filled with encouragement and wonderment; where their heart sings with joy, every school day.

It should be an education that prepares them to walk gently in an increasingly complex world. And a Catholic education creates a life of purpose, kindness, honesty and compassion.

Catholic schools partner with parents to:

  • Discover their spark - Brisbane Catholic Education schools teach faith-based, lifelong learning that engages the whole person.
  • Discover their strength - We encourage every child to pursue academic excellence, plus excellence in all pursuits, so they realise their God-given potential.
  • Discover their spirit - A Catholic education promises to nurture the gifts of each child, encouraging them to follow and live the teachings of Jesus.
