I am thrilled to welcome you to Newman Catholic College, an exciting Australia-first establishment right here in the Far North.

Newman Catholic College is an innovative approach to education that will deliver outstanding learning options, cutting-edge technology, and a values-based foundation under one roof.

Our location on the grounds of James Cook University promises to provide something truly unique to students and their families, with unprecedented opportunity for collaboration and valuable future-focused partnerships.

Newman Catholic College will combine impressive facilities with a design, digital and inquiry-based curriculum to provide the perfect environment for academic excellence and other pathway options, while maintaining a nurturing atmosphere and focus on wellbeing.

We have long experienced a growing demand for Catholic school options around the region. The partnership between Newman Catholic College and JCU will deliver significant benefits to students in all Cairns Diocese schools, through transition programs, mentorship opportunities and educational research.

Newman Catholic College is a new frontier between secondary and tertiary schooling in the Far North. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
