Join Our College


It is an exciting time to be considering enrolment at Catherine McAuley College. We are currently accepting enrolments for 2020.

Our College’s history dates back to 1876 when the Mercy Sisters opened St Aloysius’ Select School at St Kilian’s in the Bendigo goldfields. The Mercy Sisters have been associated with the College since then and formally regained sole governance of the College in 2013.

Students at Catherine McAuley College started the 2019 school year with the excitement of walking through the doors of the brand-new Sister Aloysius Martyn Arts Centre for the first time. The contemporary two-storey facility, which overlooks ovals and bushland, incorporates twenty-eight flexible learning spaces and a centre for performing and creative arts. A range of specialist and general learning areas supports integrated learning across the STEAM areas – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.

At our senior campus, St Mary’s, new facilities will open in Semester 2, comprising a specialist allied health area, commercial kitchen and new canteen and indoor/outdoor dining area.

The sporting opportunities are about to grow for the students, with a new precinct set for the Coolock campus. The new state-of-the-art facility, announced in October 2018, involves partnership between our College, the City of Greater Bendigo and Cricket Australia. It will feature an indoor training zone with six synthetic wickets, female-friendly and accessible change rooms, administration area and community space.

We warmly invite you to visit our College for a tour and find out more about the countless opportunities that the College has to offer.

Places are currently available in Years 7 to 12. Please contact the College Registrar to request a Prospectus, book a College Tour or request further information.
