Thomas Carr College is welcoming, friendly community where each person is valued and spirituality nurtured. In the spirit of Archbishop Carr, young men and women are encouraged to strive for excellence according to their individual gifts and are challenged to pursue justice in our world. This commitment is drawn from and inherent to the teaching and mission of Jesus Christ, with love, justice and the sanctity of each human person at the heart of the Gospel. 

We are first and foremost a place of learning, where quality teaching will be our professional pursuit. The College aims to facilitate the provision of the best possible learning environment for our students. The College is situated on over 10 hectares of spacious grounds incorporating modern, state of the art facilities including a Chapel, Gymnasium, Performing Arts Centre, a Trade Training Centre and a first-class oval. As a Catholic School we aim to educate our students with an appreciation of the spiritual as well as the intellectual and physical aspects of their lives. We aim to work with our parents to produce young people of faith and character. 

We value right relationships with all members of our community as we encourage our students to value the dignity of each person. Providing robust pathways for the variety of students that enrol at the College is central to the mission of the school, as we enhance the opportunities for our students in this region.   

At Thomas Carr College, we believe that for students to shine their light into the world and to be active members of a globalised world, it is important that they are able to make the most informed decisions about their future. The subject selection process is an opportunity for students to learn more about the subjects offered at Thomas Carr and to consider their future pathway options based on their strengths, interests, further study options, possible career and pathways options and future aspirations.
