Established in 1891, as the boarding campus for the Brother's flagship school at Spring Hill, Nudgee is a Catholic boys' school, and caters for both day students and boarders. It is a member of the prestigious Queensland GPS Association. The location for the College was selected by Rev. Br. P.A. Treacy, founder of the Australian Province of the Christian Brothers, at the request of the Archbishop of Brisbane at the time, Most Rev. Robert Dunne D.D.. Rev. Br. D.F. Bodkin was appointed first Headmaster.

The main building, whose facade was used in the movie Phar Lap, was completed in 1891. The matching chapel was completed in 1916 and is frequently used for weddings and funerals in addition to school celebrations. In 1993, after refurbishment, it won Royal Australian Institute of Architects Conservation Award [ [ Awards ] ] and Regional Commendation. A second school building was completed in 1919. All 3 buildings were in Italian Renaissance Style. In 1938 Nudgee Junior College was opened at a separate campus in Indooroopilly. Building has continued at Boondall, and the campus now has an array of sporting and academic facilities including 2 swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, a 9 hole golf course, rifle range, full track and field provision, numerous cricket and football ovals as well as an international college, and several halls.
