St Joseph's Nudgee College was opened in 1891 when the boarding school was transferred from the College at Gregory Terrace. The location was selected by Brother Patrick Ambrose Treacy, founder of the Australian Province of the Christian Brothers, at the request of the Archbishop of Brisbane at the time, Robert Dunne. Brother D. F. Bodkin was appointed first Headmaster. In 1938, Nudgee Junior College was opened at a separate campus in Indooroopilly.
