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.
In recent years, the College has been notable for the outstanding Higher School Certificate (HSC). In 2013, 97% of the HSC courses provided were above state average. In 2014, 83% of the HSC courses provided were above state average & in 2015, 81% of the HSC courses were above state average. These results were achieved from the hard work that the committed and passionate teachers put into their work allowing the students to reach their full potential.
