New Schools

The identification and location of new schools and colleges is incorporated within a strategic planning program employed by Brisbane Catholic Education. This program takes into account the local and state government policies and initiatives which impact on population growth, settlement patterns, infrastructure and land development across the Archdiocese. The values of our schools draw upon the richness and wisdom of Catholic tradition and welcomes all who share or seek these same values for their children.

Two proposed Prep to Year 12 schools are currently working through approval processes and, if successful, are planned to open in 2019 offering Prep to Year 3 and Year 7:

  • Bli Bli, on the Sunshine Coast
  • Coomera on the Northern Gold Coast

As part of the strategic planning program for the next 10 years, Brisbane Catholic Education is investigating several other areas in growth corridors as possible future school locations. Other schools / locations under consideration include:

  • Redbank Plains – Prep to Year 6
  • Plainland (Lockyer Valley) – Years 7 to 12
  • Yarrabilba – Years 7 to 12
  • Narangba – Prep to Year 12
  • Greenbank – Prep to Year 6
  • Aura (Caloundra South) – Prep to Year 12
  • Springfield Lakes – Years 7 to 12
  • Ripley – Prep to Year 12

Brisbane Catholic Education opened two new schools in 2017:
