Galen Catholic College is a co-educational college in Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia.


The college was first established in 1974, by the Marist Brothers, as Galen College, a senior campus (Yrs 11 and 12) for both male and female students. Most of its students came from the long-established St Joseph's Girls College and Champagnat Boys College, an agricultural boarding school; these two schools amalgamated and formed the current Galen College. In the year of amalgamation between the formerly single-sex schools, there were accounts of several pregnancies[1]. By 1983, Galen was operating as a full Year 7 -12, co-educational college.


The motto of the college is "Faith and Integrity".


The school is a member of the Catholic All Schools Sports Association (CAS).

The school today[edit]

Galen Catholic College now caters for grades 7 to VCE (11 and 12). With 17 buildings on over 63,000 square feet (19,500 square metres) of educational space, it serves around 1,200 students from Wangaratta and other local districts including Corowa, Rutherglen, Beechworth, Yarrawonga and Moyhu.[2]
