Our College

Welcome to Cardijn College

Cardijn College is an R-12 co-educational Catholic school in the Marist tradition, deeply inspired dual charisms of College patrons Joseph Cardijn and St. Marcellin Champagnat. Educating and inspiring students in the Southern Vales region of Adelaide since 1984, Cardijn has grown to be a College across three sites, each with distinct offerings. 

Cardijn College Galilee at Aldinga offers Reception to Year 9 in a context where every student experiences a unique sense of belonging in a caring and ecologically aware environment. Cardijn College Marian at Noarlunga Downs offers Years 7-12 and is renowned for its extensive curriculum and a vibrant extra-curricular program so as to provide learning pathways for its diversity of students. Cardijn College Marcellin at Christie Downs provides a wide variety of vocational education and training opportunities for students in Years 10–12 and beyond, with relationships that extend well into their careers across a range of industry partnerships.

With a current enrolment of 2050 students and 300 staff, Cardijn College is a Catholic institution which strives to be a beacon of faith in the community and to holistically educate students to have a positive influence on the world around them.

Cardijn is committed to providing opportunities for students to succeed - not only academically, but as inspired, authentic, empowered young people who are well equipped to choose future pathways and begin a rich and rewarding life journey.
