Students at Brisbane Catholic Education

Brisbane Catholic Education (BCE) provides an education to believe in – offering high-quality Catholic education for 77,000+ students in 145+ BCE schools across South East Queensland.

BCE offers a holistic education comprising academic, sporting, cultural and social aspects, presented in a rich and balanced curriculum with spiritual and faith dimensions.

From humble beginnings in 1845 when Mary and Michael Bourke opened the first Catholic school on the site of the current Myer Centre in Elizabeth Street, its mission has expanded, teaching, challenging and transforming the lives of hundreds of thousands of Prep to Year 12 students, from Childers in the north, south to the NSW border and west to Kingaroy.

Brisbane Catholic Education is committed to high-quality learning and teaching.

BCE Catholic schools are welcoming, where those of different cultural backgrounds and faith traditions feel at home and every student is given the opportunity to succeed by reaching their full potential in all aspects of school life.

BCE students excel in a variety of cultural pursuits such as music, arts and drama, while in the sporting arena, students achieve representation at state, national and international levels in numerous sports.

Many Catholic students gain scholarships to university while others move on to a wide variety of professional and technical careers.

Often, parents are unaware of the affordability offered by Catholic schools. BCE school fees may be less than imagined and all families have the opportunity to seek a Catholic education for their child.
