St Joseph's Nudgee College, established in 1891, is a day and boarding school for boys from Years 5 to 12 located in Brisbane's north. As a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice Tradition, the College's ethos and values are shaped by the Touchstones of Inclusive Community, Justice and Solidarity, Liberating Education and Gospel Spirituality. We provide an education that will liberate hearts and minds, following in the footsteps of Blessed Edmund Rice. Our vision is for the young men of Nudgee College to strive in spiritual, academic, social, personal, cultural and sporting aspects of life.

At Nudgee College we strive to develop young men of big hearts and good character. Ultimately, Nudgee College boys are called to live out our College motto ‘Signum Fidei’, to be ‘a sign of faith’ to all."”

What our families say about their Nudgee College experience 

We are all truly blessed to be so closely associated and connected with this magnificent institution that is St Joseph’s Nudgee College. Our buildings, our history, the spirit that weaves through all that we do and what we strive for, and the brotherhood that binds our students together, both past, present and I confidently say, future. I really do shake my head each day at the fact that I can come to a place that is so beautiful and historic, but more importantly, is warm, caring and filled with an intangible spirit.”

“We believe and have seen in the short time we have been at Nudgee, that it is a school that understands boys and young men extremely well. They understand boys need care and direction as well as a variety of opportunities as they find their way into the world beyond school. We are thrilled to follow our son's journey through Nudgee and can’t wait to see the young man he becomes as leaves in Year 12””
