About our school

The Terrace Family has been at the heart of St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace for over 145 years. Steeped in rich history and tradition, the Gentlemen of Terrace are shaped by the camaraderie and support formed during their time wearing the red and black.

Operating across four campuses, the main College campus operates at Spring Hill. Terrace also boasts a dedicated Year 9 campus, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, 10 hectares of sporting fields at Tennyson and an Outdoor Education Centre at Maroon Dam.

Terrace strives for excellence in the classroom and is known for celebrating academic achievement. Student performance is tracked from entry to exit through a supportive holistic process. Exceptional learners at Terrace have access to many opportunities, including extension courses, the Future Problem Solving program and the Terrabots robotics program.

An atmosphere of care is provided by the House System and encourages families to build a strong relationship with dedicated Pastoral Care Mentors and House Deans. A highlight for all students is the buddy system, which pairs Senior students with students in Years 5 and 7 to provide further support.
