About the School

Set in beautiful surroundings, next to the cane fields of the north, Gilroy Santa Maria College is a co-educational Catholic college with a current enrolment of approximately 300 students. The college is recognised throughout North Queensland as a school that has achieved great success in the academic, cultural, sporting and vocational fields since opening in 1949.

Our curriculum is broad, allowing for the development of students in many areas. We have skilled Student Support Team available to provide counselling, career advice and learning support for our families.

Gilroy Santa Maria strongly promotes a friendly, learning community and encourages the growth of our students through the values and traditions that underpin our college life. Our staff are dedicated professionals with a supportive, pastoral approach who believe in holistic development of our young men and women.

The College today is the result of a merger of two secondary Catholic schools, Gilroy College for boys and Santa Maria College for girls,which both opened in the district in 1949. The changes in secondary education and the abolition of the Scholarship year led to the amalgamation of the two schools onto the Gilroy site in 1973.
