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 draws upon 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. We welcome all who share or seek these same values for their children.

Please contact School Development Services on (07) 3033 7000​ for further information regarding the new schools.​

Proposed schools develop through a process of church and government approvals and if successful are planned to open in the following years:
