Location and History

Set in the cane fields of North Queensland on the outskirts of Ingham, Gilroy Santa Maria College offers outstanding opportunities to our students within a warm and caring environment.

The College is the result of a merger of two secondary Catholic schools, Santa Maria High School a girls' school was run by the Sisters of Mercy, and Cardinal Gilroy College a boys' school operated by the Christian Brothers.

Our Mission Statement

Faith Development and the Sacramental Life of the Church provide the foundation of College life. A Catholic Christian atmosphere is fostered by embracing Gospel Values.

As a College we place value in the individual. Through our actions we will endeavour to develop respect for self, others, authority and property.

We will pursue positive learning experiences in an environment, which is both stimulating and challenging. We will encourage the individual potential of all students enabling them to become worthwhile community members.
