For many parents one of the most important choices they make is how they educate their children. One in five Queensland students attends a Catholic school. Catholic schools offer families quality, affordable education preparing children for their future.

Parents choose Catholic schools because they offer:

  • Excellent academic outcomes
  • Strong partnerships between families, school and community
  • Personalised student attention
  • A spirited school community focused on Christian values
  • Development of self-discipline based on respect for others
  • A vision of hope for the future

Catholic schools welcome students from a diverse range of cultural, social and economic backgrounds. These include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, new arrival and refugee students, students living with disability and special needs.

Catholic School Parents Queensland is a strong voice for families in Catholic schools, providing leadership, advocacy and support for all families in Catholic schools at local, diocesan, state and national levels.
