Galen Catholic College was first established in Wangaratta by the Marist Brothers in 1974 as Galen College, a senior campus (Yrs 11 and 12) for both male and female students. Most of Galen's students had come from the long established St Joseph's Girls College and Champagnat Boys College, an agricultural boarding school. By 1983 Galen was operating as a full Year 7 -12, co-educational college. Galen Catholic College is a Catholic School based in Wangaratta, North East Victoria, Australia. The school today caters for grades 7 to VCE (11 and 12).


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


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