Good Shepherd Catholic College is a Roman Catholic, coeducational, day school, located in Mount Isa Queensland, Australia. Good Shepherd Catholic College is a Parish-based Catholic College catering for Years 8 to 12, closely associated with Good Shepherd Parish, Mount Isa. It comprises two former schools, Mount Isa Catholic High School and St Kieran's College.


In January 1960 three Christian Brothers opened St Kieran's. They had the care for the education of the Catholic boys of Mount Isa from Grades 5 to 10. In 1965 the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart opened San Jose College for girls. San Jose School educated girls until 1985 when it merged with Saint Kieran’s College at St Kieran's site. The new co-educational school was named Mount Isa Catholic High School. The "old" San Jose premises became St. Joseph's Primary School.
