History of Nagle Catholic College

On 11 February 1994, Bishop Justin Bianchini commissioned Nagle Catholic College as a Catholic school within the Diocese of Geraldton.

While the life of the College formally commenced on that day, its story goes back a lot further - to 1891, in fact, when Stella Maris College was opened by the Presentation Sisters.

Some thirty-five years later, in 1926, St. Patrick's College was opened by the Christian Brothers. For the ensuing sixty-eight years, these two boarding schools continued to cater for the educational needs of the young women and men of Geraldton and its surrounding areas.
