About our school

We have a strong culture based upon clear values of courage, excellence, justice, community and authenticity. Students are taught, nurtured and challenged by teachers who strive for the best in all their students.

The holistic education, personal development and wellbeing of each student is a key focus at the College. Nudgee College students are inspired to build a better world for all through spiritual formation programs, community liturgical events, service learning, advocacy and social justice initiatives. The support offered by staff is complemented by the excellent facilities across 136 hectares.

Academically, every student at Nudgee College is catered for through the rich and diverse nature of our subject offerings, learning facilities, learning support department, and vocational education and training program. With a focus on 21st century skills, all boys are inspired and taught to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, to create and innovate and to be able to communicate and collaborate.
