Marcellin Campus started its life as the Australian Technical College Adelaide South, an initiative of the Australian Federal Government in 2006.
In 2009 the 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 era as Marcellin Technical College within Catholic Education South Australia (CESA).
In 2016, Marcellin came under the governance of Cardijn College and in 2018 it became a campus of Cardijn College strengthening the Catholic Education partnerships in the southern region.
Mr Steve Byrne, the current Principal of Sacred Heart College has been appointed as the next Principal of Cardijn College and will commence in the role in 2023.
Today the College is a vibrant community across three schools with a total enrolment 1850 students enrolled and over 250 staff members.
