Eaton College is a co-educational, special purpose educational facility for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). With no ASD specific school in the Townsville region, Eaton College was born out of a desire to meet the needs of children with ASD in our local community.

Currently under construction, it is proposed that Stage 1 of the College will open its doors in 2023 for up to 20 Prep and Lower Primary students only. The full capacity of Stage 1 caters for up to 40 students with class sizes at a maximum of 10 students. Over time the College has the capacity to extend up to Year 10, with the addition of 40 students in the additional Stage 2 and Stage 3 respectively. The maximum capacity of Eaton College is 120 students, and this is expected to be reached over a 10-year period.

The College is welcoming applications for a full-time Classroom Teacher for the commencement of classes in 2023.
