In everything we do, we aim to inspire excellence; a personal excellence that sees all boys reach their potential. Boys are engaged in dynamic and relevant experiences and pathways that promote learning, personal growth, achievement and service. Our vision is built around our desire to help educate and prepare young men for a world that is desperately calling out for our future leaders to be young men of character who will help shape the direction of our future communities. This is based upon our touchstones of Learning, Leadership and Service.
We believe learning at Ambrose Treacy College should be about balance. A balanced offering across STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Humanities and The Arts allows boys to grow and excel across the many facets of their emerging self. The rich co-curricular life of the school complements what happens inside the classroom to enable boys to achieve the kind of balanced life that will set them up well for a healthy, happy adulthood.
We aim to develop young men who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Throughout their time at the College, our students will be offered a connected holistic Formation framework that provides support for their purposeful growth as they journey from boyhood into young men.
At Ambrose Treacy College we believe service is central to the authenticity of our community as it empowers a boy’s capacity to live his faith through action. We provide a comprehensive Service Program designed to form young men through meaningful and challenging opportunities, programs and immersions.

The College takes a holistic approach to environmental sustainability. Our unique location on the Brisbane River affords students the opportunity to engage with the natural environment and learn sustainability management. With recent major, state of the art building works at the College, the implementation of initiatives to engage students in sustainability processes is central to the College’s vision of “challenging its members to make a prophetic difference for our world”.
Our co-curricular activities program encompasses the practical and theoretical practices of environmental care and management. Environment Club fosters an appreciation of the natural environment in terms of increased awareness, active involvement and contributing to the wider community. The boys’ actions reflect their respect for the College grounds and their message of ‘nurturing nature’ is an integral part of the Service Program at the College.
Our infrastructure incorporates a number of technologies to ensure that our impact on the environment is limited. The College contributes to the quality of the environment through a combination of award winning architectural design and the minimisation of natural resources used. We have 12 rainwater tanks with a pool of 255,000 litres and one 300,000 litre underground reservoir harnessing bore water for irrigation. The impact of new development on the site ecology is reduced by minimising building footprints, locating structures on the site ridgeline and on existing non-vegetated areas. The buildings typically wrap around existing protected trees to shade and cool the classrooms.
