Welcome to The Cathedral College, a Catholic, co-educational, Boarding College in the Diocese of Rockhampton. We believe each person is made in the image and likeness of God – each possessing seeds of greatness, to be nurtured through a holistic Catholic education where academic excellence goes hand in hand with spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Darumbal people, on which The Cathedral College stands and recognise their ongoing spiritual closeness to the land.

The College is built in the shadow of St Joseph’s Cathedral, in the city of Rockhampton, Central Queensland, approximately 40 kilometres inland from the Capricorn Coast and 650 kilometres north of Queensland’s capital city, Brisbane.

Our College motto, “Come, live life in all its fullness” (John 10:10) invites every member of the College community to develop their relationship with Jesus Christ.

The College is founded on: the traditions of our predecessor Colleges, St Joseph’s Christian Brothers College and the Sisters of Mercy, Our Lady of Good Counsel College (Range College); and the charisms of their founders, Blessed Edmund Rice and Venerable Catherine McAuley.

Gratitude, Respect and Compassion beat at the heart of College life.

Over 1300 students are enrolled at our College including 200 Boarders from across Central Queensland and beyond.

We invite you to explore our website and contact us if you have enrolment and employment enquiries.
