St Joseph's Nudgee College (commonly referred to simply as Nudgee) is a private, Roman Catholic, day and boarding school for boys, located in Boondall, a northern suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.In 1891 it was decided by the Congregation of Christian Brothers that because of the large numbers of boarders at St. Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace and insufficient room to house them that a new school be opened to cater for the boarders at Nudgee. Both schools share St. Joseph's College as part of their name and follow the Edmund Rice tradition. Nudgee currently caters for approximately 1390 students from Years 5 to 12, including 300 boarders. Tuition is offered to boys in Years 5 to 12.
While Nudgee International College sits within the grounds of Brisbane GPS School St Joseph's Nudgee College at Boondall (also an EREA school), Nudgee International College is a completely separate entity and is not part of St Joseph's Nudgee College. In 2012 Nudgee International College is in the process of closing down.
