About our school

At Ambrose Treacy College we believe every boy can achieve personal excellence and be a leader in the community. The College was founded on the three pillars of Learning, Leadership and Service and these pillars provide opportunities for our staff, students and parents to live and grow as a ‘Signum Fidei’ (Sign of Faith) for each other and for our world.

We promote a culture of high expectation which is evidence informed and improvement seeking and our quality teaching and learning experiences aim for each student to be hope filled and achieve their personal best. Pathways to suit each boys’ talents and interests, plus targeted classes and Enrichment programs support boys in reaching their goals.

ATC is an inclusive community that is accepting and welcoming, fostering right relationships and our students are agents of change who are committed to justice and peace for all, as they walk in solidarity
with those who are marginalised. Every student is required to partake in service hours. Last year, over 23,000 hours were recorded by students working in the community and giving back to others less fortunate. Students have opportunities to link with and be aware of people from many backgrounds, and thus forging connections and building awareness.

Leadership programs across the College promote opportunities in and out of the classroom – Men of Courage, High Performance Habits, Clubs and Activities, Extensive Co-curricular – for every boy to experience and develop leadership skills so they can be men of courage. We look forward to answering your questions at one of our morning or afternoon College Tours in 2022. Register now via our website.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Ambrose Treacy College.

We are a Catholic College for boys, founded in 2015, and inspired by the story of Jesus, the charism of Edmund Rice and the example of Patrick Ambrose Treacy. Built on the rich, 80-year tradition of Nudgee Junior College, we pride ourselves in providing a diverse curriculum that balances innovation with tradition. The educational environment at Ambrose Treacy College challenges and inspires each boy to achieve their personal potential in spiritual, academic, emotional, ethical, social and physical dimensions.

We are one College and three schools with our Junior, Middle and Senior campuses nestled in a leafy integrated setting next to the Brisbane River. Over 1300 boys from Years 4 to 12 and nearly 200 staff enjoy our enviable position, surrounded by nature, well-resourced and supported by state-of-the-art facilities.

Our goal is to empower young men, in partnership with their families, to become for the world, Signs of Faith with the skills, confidence and will to make a positive difference. The Ambrose Treacy College experience is informed and supported by our three pillars of learning, leadership and service.

We seek to engage with the energy of our boys, intentionally and relationally, through a balance of challenge and support. In response to the contemporary needs of boys’ education, we provide an exciting learning environment led by experienced teachers who appreciate the boys’ energy, humour and imagination. We work hard to create a school that is challenging, yet friendly; demanding, yet supportive; and serious in purpose yet playful in spirit.

Ambrose Treacy College is situated on a stunning 40-hectare campus overlooking the Brisbane River in the suburb of Indooroopilly. Our beautiful site currently comprises modern classrooms, well-maintained sporting fields, tennis and basketball courts, an all-weather swimming pool and a large assembly hall, all spread out over landscaped gardens, trees and open fields. IN 2014, in preparation for our expansion into a high school, The Edmund Rice building was renovated into seven new classrooms, a learning enrichment area, art room, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) laboratory and a new administration centre. This $4-million renovation project also included the refurbishment of our Junior School tuckshop.

New facilities for the Middle School were officially opened in 2016 at a cost of $12 million which included Year 9 and 10 classrooms, four STEM laboratories, two Design Technology workspaces, a Drama facility, two modern Music learning spaces, a full commercial kitchen and tuckshop, Hospitality teaching room, and an additional library and iCentre. This project has provided us with state-of-the-art facilities for our Middle School students.

Stage Three, officially opened in 2018, has provided more classrooms and specialised teaching and learning areas for Year 11 and 12 students. This project involved the construction of new buildings– Tipperary, Waterford and a new sport and PE hall. The facilities for our Year 11 and 12 students include general classrooms and specialist facilities for hospitality, drama, HPE, digital technology and design technology.

The completion of the Stage D Waterford West project in 2020 provided the College with eight new teaching spaces as well Senior School administration and student facilities. This stage of our expansion was a significant signpost in the journey of Ambrose Treacy College as it marked the conclusion of the establishment of the full community footprint for students in Years 4 to 12. The College Master Plan for the next decade is complete and the Queensland Government Ministerial Designation was approved in May 2021 which empowers future development and planning.
