First published in 2010, Catholic Schools Guide is a wholly owned publication of Catholic Schools Guide Pty Ltd. Although, the Guide maintains relationships with various Catholic Education Offices, it is a completely independent publication.
The Guide is designed as a showcase of Catholic secondary education. It offers a unique and visionary way of promoting Catholic secondary schools in an innovative and cost-effective strategy. Together with an integrated digital platform, the Guide provides parents the opportunity to access easy information on a Catholic Secondary College that they may be considering for their son or daughter.
Each Year A Different Theme
Our annual Guide is released in February with a different theme being the focus each year. You can download the full back catalogue on the site.

In addition, we have a number of feature writers who all donate their time pro bono to promote education. Their articles are insightful and full of terrific tips for parents.
The core philosophy of the Guide is underpinned by equity. Every advertising College is given one page and is listed in alphabetical order, significantly no College can ‘buy’ position. Further, the Guide follows a set template and is packed with useful information that parents need when making key decisions about their child’s education. This enables the reader to compare and contrast each College in a fair and consistent manner. It shows the reader that the ‘whole is greater than the sum of its parts’.
The Colleges provide the information and photos, while our graphic team designs the layout which allows every school to be treated with equal pride and care. We make no commentary about any school, rather each school signs off and approves their own page.
