Trinity Catholic College is a Catholic co-educational school in the Marist tradition located in New South Wales, Australia. The school is a dual campus College, with Years 7 & 8 located in Regents Park and the Years 9 to 12 campus located at Auburn. The College crest consists of the Christian Cross and the Southern Cross standing together, expressing their pride in their Catholic faith and Australian heritage.

The Trinity community is focused on learning and teaching in the contemporary world, emphasising consistently strong academic results. The school's Principles of Learning and Teaching capture the belief that quality student learning is motivating, deep, communal and contextualised. Trinity's intention for their students are that they are hopeful, engaged, resourceful and disciplined. It is these aims that inform their daily work.

Trinity Catholic College was founded in 1995 from an amalgamation of three schools: Benedict College, Auburn, St John’s Regional College for Girls, Auburn and St Peter Chanel Girls’ High, Regents Park.

The tradition of the Marist Brothers was established in 1942 with the foundation of a boys’ school at Auburn, which eventually became the senior Secondary school of the district, Benedict College.The Sisters of Charity, the first Religious Sisters to work in Australia, began a school at Auburn in 1893, which became St John’s Regional College for Girls. The inspiration of St Mary of the Cross was handed down in St Peter Chanel Girls’ High at Regents Park, founded in 1953 by the Sisters of St Joseph.

The Sydney Archdiocesan Catholic Schools Board decided to constitute a single new co-educational College to operate on two campuses in 1992.
