From the Principal

Welcome to Catholic Agricultural College, Bindoon.

The College is located on 3300 hectares of picturesque farming land in the Chittering Valley just over one hour's drive from Perth. The College has been at the forefront of agricultural training in Western Australia for many years. In recent years, state of the art trade training facilities have been added to expand the College's course offerings and opportunities for practical learning.

Our College is a co-educational Catholic School in the Edmund Rice tradition. We offer secondary education for boarding and day students from Years 7 to 12 from across the State. The learning programs are complemented by effective pastoral support programs to ensure all students can live and study effectively within the College community.

As a leading Vocational Education College, which consistently ranks very highly in State-wide graduation tables, we specialise in providing opportunities for our students to engage with Agriculture, Equine and Trades, including automotive and engineering. Our environment provides students with a unique learning experience which fully integrates theory, practice and technology. We seek to inspire the comprehensive development of each student in a healthy, rural environment. Our students are challenged to develop individual initiative and responsibility.

Each year, our graduating Senior students have completed accredited and recognised Certificate courses, and are ready to embark on the development of their careers or further studies. They are well prepared to contribute positively to their rural and other communities. Agriculture and trades provide major employment opportunities in Western Australia. Equipped with practical work skills when they graduate, our students are well-prepared for employment or further learning in a wide range of industries. They have sound personal values and qualities to enable them to make valuable contributions and find success where ever they go.

I invite you to contact the College to discuss the opportunities and benefits a Catholic Agricultural College education can provide for your son or daughter.
