About Us

St Catherine’s College, The Whitsundays has a very special place in the history of the Whitsundays. Established as a small convent school by the Sisters of Mercy in 1925, our college has grown to be a co-educational Catholic college for students from Prep to Year 11 in 2016, through to Year 12 in 2017. With dedicated precincts for each stage of their schooling, children at St Catherine’s are provided with an education that is more than just academic. The students are nurtured to develop spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically in a community that embraces Catholic values. Our college draws its inspiration from the work of St Ignatius, who encouraged students to think deeply and challenged them to change the world for the better. We use our college values of Excellence, Justice, Compassion and Community to inspire and guide the character, talents and aspirations of our young students. Parents and staff work together at encouraging each child to reach their full potential, so they can confidently meet the opportunities and responsibilities of today and their future.
