About The School

St Teresa’s College Abergowrie, is a Catholic secondary boys boarding college located in the Herbert River Valley, 38 kms from Ingham, situated on Warrgamay land. St Teresa’s College Abergowrie in partnership with families and communities is dedicated to growing good men and providing a meaningful education in the spirit of Jesus Christ.

The College has served the needs of families since 1933. There is a strong rural dimension to the College that has developed from pioneering days with the Christian Brothers, at the request of the then Bishop of Townsville, to provide a College that caters especially for boys from rural backgrounds.

The College has excelled over the last decade in supporting parents and communities to educate remote Indigenous Australian students from the Northern Territory, Cape York, the Torres Strait and even the Brisbane area.

We are an inclusive community, embracing families from the Australian mainland and islands and international students from Papua New Guinea. Within the college, more than 40 communities are represented and as many as 70 languages and dialects are spoken.
