About us

Marcellin Technical is the co-educational Catholic senior secondary (Year 10, 11 and 12) technical campus of Cardijn College specialising in the delivery of South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) alongside a trade/vocational training program.

We specialise in developing programs for students who wish to complete their SACE while working toward an Australian School-based Apprenticeship/Traineeship (SBAT/ASbA) and completion of their apprenticeship/traineeship post school.

Marcellin Technical started its life as the Australian Technical College – Adelaide South, an initiative of the Australian Federal Government in 2006.

In 2009 the College governance and ownership passed to the South Australia Commission for Catholic Schools (SACCS) on behalf of the Archdiocese of Adelaide, and the College entered a new phase as Marcellin Technical College within Catholic Education South Australia (CESA).

Marcellin continues to build close links with our community through its alignment with Cardijn College and provides education and training opportunities that fit well with the community values of Catholic Education SA.

Marcellin embraces the educational vision of Saint Marcellin Champagnat and is inspired and committed to the five Marist teaching characteristics of Presence, Simplicity, Family Spirit, Love of Work and in the Way of Mary. Marcellin Technical College is an affiliated member of the Association of Marist Schools of Australia (MSA).
