Welcome to St James Catholic College, Cygnet

St James Catholic College, Cygnet, is a Catholic, co-educational school providing outstanding educational opportunities for students from Kindergarten to Year 10. It has an enrolment of approximately 300 students.

St James Catholic College is distinctively defined by its students who always prove to be a group of friendly, intelligent, enthusiastic and creative individuals.

St James Catholic College was established in 1896 by the Sisters of St Joseph (whose co-founders were St Mary of the Cross MacKillop and Julian Tension Woods) St Mary of the Cross MacKillop believed she could make a difference in children's lives by providing them with an education centered on the care and development of faith. Her famous quote is "Never see a need without doing something about it”. This spirit still lives among us at St James Catholic College in our day to day lives.

We help your child discover and develop their inner spirit and strength of character. Learning about themselves and the difference they can make is as important as what they learn inside the classroom. We believe success is not what they become, but who they become.

The St James Catholic College community considers it a privilege to be involved in the education of your child.

We bid you a warm welcome to our website and invite you to contact the school should you wish to learn more about us.
