Our Schools

Nationally there are many schools forming a large network with a common commitment to offering a Catholic education guided by the charism of Edmund Rice.

EREA Members Schools

Members schools of EREA are those which EREA directly owns and governs. There are over 50 of these schools, including a number of Flexible Learning Centres operated by Youth+, based in all states and territories of Australia. 


Youth+ offers a flexible education for young people disenfranchised from the education system and from many aspects of society. These Flexible Learning Centres operate in almost every state and territories of Australia. These locations include Alice Springs, Mt Isa, Townsville, Rockhampton, Gympie, Noosa, Deception Bay, Albert Park, Centre Ed Programme (Kingston), Inala, Hemmant, Ipswich, Southport, St Mary's (Penrith), Wollongong, North Melbourne, FAME (Adelaide) and Geraldton.

Associates of EREA

Associates of EREA are schools which, although not governed by EREA, desire to keep a connection to the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice. Edmund Rice Education Australia seeks to build a relationship with Catholic Schools which see their mission in association with the Edmund Rice tradition and Christian Brother heritage. Such schools may be interested in keeping their foundation story alive through enriching their understanding of and commitment to the charism of Edmund. Schools wishing to enter such a relationship will be known as Associates of Edmund Rice Education.

New Zealand Partner Schools

The Partner Schools, although not governed by Edmund Rice Education Australia, are affiliated with us in celebrating the connection to the charism of Blessed Edmund Rice. They see their mission in association with the Edmund Rice tradition and Christian Brother heritage. These communities work out of a clear understanding of the Edmund Rice charism through formation and participation in Edmund Rice ministries in New Zealand.
