Shalom College provides Catholic secondary education for both boys and girls from the Bundaberg region. Students are offered a diverse curriculum in a modern, well-equipped College. Shalom College was established in 1984 after the closure of the Christian Brothers College for boys and Loyola College for girls. It enrols students of all faiths whose parents choose an education based on Christian values in the Catholic tradition.

The College offers both academic and vocational subjects. It is divided into a Middle School (Years 7, 8 and 9) and a Senior School (Years 10, 11 and 12). While some choice of subjects is available in the Middle School, students concentrate on Core Studies (English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities) and Religious Education. In the Senior School, students may choose subjects according to their interest and abilities – though English, Mathematics and Religious Education remain compulsory. On the completion of Year 12 most students proceed with further education at a University or a College or TAFE.

Shalom also offers a wide range of co-curricular activities including instrumental music, choirs, interschool sport, retreats and camps and various clubs and societies. Information technology is a strong component of the curriculum. Every student in Year 7-10 has an iPad and every student in Year 11 and 12 has a laptop. Students also have access to computers through the modern computing centre.
