History of our College

Southern Cross Catholic College (SCCC) was founded in 1995 following the amalgamation of the Catholic primary and secondary schools on the Redcliffe Peninsula. Today, the multi-campus college operates as the principal Catholic College in the North Moreton Bay region and is the second largest Catholic College in the state.

The College's rich history stems back to the 1940s when the original Brigidine Sisters' school first opened its doors in January 1948 as St Bernadette's Primary School, closely followed by the opening of Our Lady Help of Christians in 1950. Soubirous College followed in 1951, De La Salle primary and secondary in 1955, Our Lady of Lourdes in 1969 and Frawley College was founded in 1973 and named after the local Parish Priest, Monsignor Bartholomew Frawley.

The benefits which flourished from the amalgamation include well-resourced facilities and a strengthened community. Today, Southern Cross Catholic College boasts three primary campuses located in Scarborough (Frawley Campus), Kippa Ring (MacKillop Campus) and Woody Point (Delany Campus) accommodating students in Prep to Year 6, and a fourth campus in Scarborough (De La Salle Campus) accommodating middle and senior years students from Year 7 to Year 12.

The College is committed to developing its rich history embodying the tradition of Catholic education begun by its Founders. The College Houses are named after each of our founders - St John Baptist de La Salle, Dr Daniel Delany, St Mary MacKillop and former Parish Priest Monsignor Bartholomew Frawley. Our College Patron Saint is Mary, Help of Christians.

Over the years the local and Southern Cross Catholic College community has ensured the College's name has been held in the highest regard and kept the SCCC banner flying high in the area of academia, culture, mission, sport and social justice.
