Welcome to St Paul’s Catholic Secondary College!
Building on more than a century of Catholic Education in the Macleay and Nambucca valleys, St Paul’s Catholic Secondary College was established in 1965. 

While the College enjoys an enviable academic reputation, with students achieving the highest ATAR scores in the area, we are also focused on preparing students for the workplace through our unique Certificate II courses in Primary Industries, Hospitality and Construction, Aged care and Early Childhood. 

The College’s community life is based on the Gospel teachings of dignity, equality, justice, and peace.  Students from all faith backgrounds are welcome.

We have an outstanding staff who provide a quality, comprehensive educational foundation by enabling our young people to explore their own particular gifts in spiritual, academic, cultural, social, and creative fields. 

Our beautiful campus has outstanding, modern facilities fitted with the latest technologies to support student learning. 

Faith development and Catholic education is central to the existence of St Paul’s.  We enjoy a very strong Catholic culture with a vibrant prayer life. It is essential that every student participates positively, and actively, in Religious Education, irrespective of their own faith background.

Students are at the centre of our planning and delivery of curriculum, which is deep and holistic in nature allowing students to target their learning to areas of strength, especially in the latter years, allowing their light to shine.

Ultimately then, our success is not measured just in results, but in employment outcomes, social skills, community mindedness, generosity of spirit and a desire to share and foster love creating an inclusive focused community.
