Cabra Dominican College, as a Christian community in the Catholic tradition, strives to nurture and develop the unique gifts of individuals, to liberate them in the search for truth, and to empower them to create a better world.


Cabra Dominican College is a co-educational Catholic college in the Dominican tradition, situated on beautiful and spacious grounds in Cumberland Park, Adelaide. Over 130 years old, we draw from a rich heritage of educating young people from throughout South Australia and beyond. With a current enrolment of over 1200 students and a staff of 120, students enjoy our vibrant, diverse and inclusive community.

Students and families often speak of feeling deeply connected to our community, the Dominican story, each other and staff. These quality relationships then extend to the classroom and underpin the rich and diverse learning opportunities available. At Cabra, we are committed to providing an excellent, well-rounded education that is focused on the current and future needs of each young person.

Inspired by our vision statement, we encourage each individual to accept and develop their unique God-given gifts in the service of others, empowering them to create a better world. To enable this holistic development, Cabra students have access to an extensive curriculum, coupled with a broad and diverse extra-curricular experience.  Overall, we hope that students graduate from Cabra, as confident, capable, well-educated young people full of hope.

I invite you to discover the Cabra story through our website and trust you will find many examples of our mission alive in structures, aspects and experiences of our daily lives here at Cabra. If you would like any further information about the College, please contact us or join us for one of our Principal's Tours.
