Kearnan College, formerly St Josephs, was founded by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1925. It is a Catholic co-educational school situated in Manjimup, 300 kilometres south of Perth. The College provides a primary education for local children and a secondary education for students from Manjimup, Bridgetown, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Greenbushes, Boyup Brook and the surrounding districts.
It is a thriving Catholic community that has been providing education opportunities for more than eighty years. Our curriculum is seamlessly integrated with the local industry, the environment and community.
Kearnan College has 366 students from Kindergarten to year 12 and thirty nine dedicated staff that ensure the quality of our education program. We endeavour to provide each student with access to a complete and integrated education; that is, one that promotes physical, intellectual, moral, social and creative growth and vocational preparation. The College takes pride in the all round achievement of our students and strives to instil high personal goals through various academic and sporting initiatives and extracurricula programmes. The strong pastoral approach and structures that pervade our school emphasise the development and differences in each individual and their particular gifts and talents.
