St Brendan’s College Boarding offers a sprawling 300 acre-campus with abundant space, facilities, academic and extra-curricular opportunities for the development of boys to young men. We are located only minutes from Yeppoon Town Centre and the beauty of Capricorn Coast's beaches, and a short half an hour drive from Rockhampton.
The College is a spacious ‘home away from home’ for boys with quality staffing and support so parents can be assured their son’s care and welfare is our ultimate priority.
St Brendan’s College Boarding has been specialising in the provision of residential care for young men from Central Queensland and beyond since 1940. With such a wealth of experience, we understand the unique needs of our boarding students and their families. Our qualified and experienced staff provide a level of care that resembles that of a family home. Our professional and caring staff provide a safe and structured environment and support the boys through any academic or personal issues that may arise. The daily routine for each Residence is supervised by Heads of Residence staff. They are well supported by a trained team of supervisors to ensure comprehensive duty of care. All Heads of Residence and Supervisors live on-site, have “Working with Children” clearances and are in-serviced regularly in the latest strategies and innovations in Residential Care.
Specifically, the residential community of St Brendan’s College aims:
The focus is strongly pastoral and is founded in sound educational and spiritual practices developed specifically for young men. The formation programs are responsive to the ever-changing needs of the modern teenager while respecting the necessity for strong moral and behavioural standards.
