Catholic Education Office

The Catholic Education system in Western Australia provides a dynamic, student centred approach to education for more than 73,000 young people in 159 schools and colleges across the state.

With a focus on the development of the whole person – intellectual, spiritual, social, physical and emotional development – Catholic Education is the state’s second largest education sector, educating some 18% of all school-aged children in Western Australia.

Unlike any other state in Australia, Catholic schools in Western Australia are united as a system, with the four dioceses – Perth, Bunbury, Geraldton and Broome – all collaborating to provide Quality Catholic Schooling across the state.
