St Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace (Terrace), is a Catholic Day School for young men from Years 5 to 12, founded by the Christian Brothers. Terrace is one of the nine Great Public Schools (GPS) in Queensland and, founded in 1875, is among the oldest.
Our College has a long and rich history that spans more than 140 years in the tradition of the Christian Brothers and their founder, Blessed Edmund Rice. Today the College is governed by Edmund Rice Education Australia.
Terrace has been nurtured by the Christian Brothers and their partnerships with lay staff and the wider Terrace Family. Our community is grateful for the vision, service and commitment of the Christian Brothers and we are proud of the thousands of Terracians who have contributed significantly to both Church and civil life locally, nationally and globally throughout our history.
Our College motto, Servire Deo Sapere or ‘To
Serve God is to be Wise’ articulates our commitment
to the formation of the ‘Terrace Gentleman’
to be a young man of faith and learning
who will make a difference through knowledge, humility and wisdom.
