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 one of the largest Catholic Colleges 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. Our Lady Help of Christians opened soon after in 1950, and Soubirous College followed in 1951, De La Salle primary and secondary opened 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, Kippa Ring and Woody Point,  accommodating students in Prep to Year 6. A fourth campus, also located in Scarborough, accommodates middle and senior years students from Years 7 to Year 12.

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