St Paul's College, formerly St Paul's Technical College and St Paul's Technical School, was a Catholic boys school in Ballarat.
In 1948, the Bishop of Ballarat, Most Reverend James O'Collins established St Paul's Technical College, inviting the Christian Brothers to continue their work for boys through the provision of technical education.
In 1960, Miss Alice Fanning bequeathed property in Mt Clear to the Sisters of Mercy. In 1967 the land was developed for a senior school for girls from Sacred Heart College, named St Martin's in the Pines. The school became co-educational in 1988, with many boys in the senior years of St Paul's attending St Martin's in the Pines.
In 1987, the school moved from Lydiard Street's Ludbrook House to the former Ballarat Orphanage on Victoria Street.

Also named were De La Salle College and Geelong Grammar School.
