For over 140 years, St Joseph’s College, Gregory Terrace, has committed itself to the formation of the ‘Terrace Gentleman’ – young men of faith and learning who will make a difference to the world through knowledge, humility and wisdom.
A day school in inner-city Brisbane, Terrace is one of the nine Great Public Schools (GPS) in Queensland and, founded in 1875, is among the oldest EREA schools. The College motto, Servire Deo Sapere or 'To Serve God is to be Wise' articulates the Terrace commitment to be a community focused on faith-centred holistic development, the pursuit of academic excellence and the creation of an atmosphere of care for young men in Years 5 to 12. In fostering the Terrace Family, staff, students, parents and friends of the College work to support each other as Terrace Gentlemen journey through Terrace. The College operates across four campuses, with state of the art facilities on the main campus, including a dedicated Year 10 campus, through to 10 hectares of sporting ﬁelds and an Outdoor Education Centre at Maroon Dam.
