St Joseph’s Nudgee College was established in 1891 and is one of the oldest continuing Catholic boys’ boarding schools in Australia.
Amongst the student cohort you will find writers, athletes, artists, performers, science enthusiasts, maths fanatics, leaders, builders, dreamers, all-rounders, and everything in between.
On a daily basis students are taught, cared for, and challenged by teachers who want the best for each student. The holistic education, personal development and wellbeing of each student remains the key focus of the College.
At Nudgee College, we offer a rich diversity of educational opportunities - in the classroom, in sport, in cultural pursuits and activities - as well as in faith development and social justice initiatives.
The service, solidarity and advocacy programs of Nudgee College are integral to the College’s identity as a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice Tradition. Our programs aim to be more than charitable good words; a deeper level of understanding is found in the move from charity to service. The College community works closely with community agencies and often responds to specific needs that arise in the wider community.
As a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) College, we have implemented technology to enhance and improve student learning, while explicitly instructing students on how to be critical consumers and producers of information; to be responsible digital citizens. Every student at Nudgee College is catered for through the rich and diverse nature of our subject offerings, our state of the art learning facilities, our Learning Support Department, our Enrichment Program and the various awards of recognition of achievement.
Outside of the classroom, Nudgee College has a sprawling 136-hectare campus with a range of facilities that provide an engaging environment for boys to learn, to grow and to be challenged. As a member of the Queensland Greater Public Schools (GPS) Association, the College provides a healthy and social opportunity for large numbers of boys to take part in a wide range of sporting and cultural activities. These include Cricket, Debating, Rowing, Swimming, Volleyball, Cross Country (Athletics), Football, Tennis, Basketball, Chess, Rugby and Track and Field (Athletics). There are many other clubs and teams that students can be part of, including Theatresports, various music ensembles and bands, and Cattle Club.
We strive to develop young men of big hearts and good character. Ultimately, Nudgee College boys are called to live out our College motto Signum Fidei to be ‘a sign of faith’ to all.
