About our school

Ryan Catholic College was established in 1979 and has as its foundational story the well-known “Journey to Emmaus” story from the Gospel of Luke about the recognition of Jesus being with us on our journey. The theme of “journey” is one that is embraced by the College and is a fine metaphor for portraying the growth that all people experience in developing their spirituality, intellect, physical and social capabilities and wisdom. Although the College is relatively young, it has an enviable reputation for providing an education which results in graduates who are well rounded young people. Academic excellence is sought and achieved within a broad education, with multiple pathways for students to attain their goals. Ryan is always striving to be an inclusive school.
