Welcome to Ambrose Treacy College

from the Principal, Chris Ryan

Welcome to Ambrose Treacy College.

We are a Catholic College for boys, founded in 2015, and inspired by the story of Jesus, the charism of Edmund Rice and the example of Patrick Ambrose Treacy. Built on the rich, 80-year tradition of Nudgee Junior College, we pride ourselves in providing a diverse curriculum that balances innovation with tradition. The educational environment at Ambrose Treacy College challenges and inspires each boy to achieve their personal potential in spiritual, academic, emotional, ethical, social and physical dimensions.

We are one College and three schools with our Junior, Middle and Senior campuses nestled in a leafy integrated setting next to the Brisbane River. Over 1300 boys from Years 4 to 12 and nearly 200 staff enjoy our enviable position, surrounded by nature, well-resourced and supported by state-of-the-art facilities.

Our goal is to empower young men, in partnership with their families, to become for the world, Signs of Faith with the skills, confidence and will to make a positive difference. The Ambrose Treacy College experience is informed and supported by our three pillars of learning, leadership and service.

We seek to engage with the energy of our boys, intentionally and relationally, through a balance of challenge and support. In response to the contemporary needs of boys’ education, we provide an exciting learning environment led by experienced teachers who appreciate the boys’ energy, humour and imagination. We work hard to create a school that is challenging, yet friendly; demanding, yet supportive; and serious in purpose yet playful in spirit.

I welcome you to navigate your way around our website and if you would like more information, or if you would like a tour of our College, please be sure to make contact with us. We would enjoy welcoming you to visit.
