Welcome to
Francis Douglas Memorial College

​​​​​​​FDMC seeks to educate our young boys to grow into good college men who will contribute to our society in a positive way.  Each student brings a unique set of skills and knowledge with them and we respect and value this diversity as we aim to develop every student as an individual.  Our students are well supported to ensure they have every opportunity to achieve their own potential, their own excellence.  FDMC is committed to ensuring every graduate leaves our College ready, willing, and able to confidently join the wider world as a man of faith, service, community, and excellence.​​​​​​​

As the only state-integrated Catholic day and boarding school for young men in Taranaki, we are acknowledged and respected for our ability and unique approach to educating, nurturing, and growing fine young men, and have been since 1959.  Our inclusive, Lasallian approach helps our students to develop into citizens of good character and integrity through exploring, learning, questioning, playing, competing, creating, performing, and connecting with and serving the community and wider world.

We pride ourselves on knowing our students and their whānau.  Our staff works hard to ensure they are well informed about their students' interests, aspirations, strengths and dreams, and are actively working to support our young men to achieve their goals and realise their potential. ​​​​​​​

Our parents and the wider community will tell you that FDMC is a special place.  Its depth of character, traditions, diversity, and commitment to academic and sporting excellence, as well as its beautiful surroundings, contribute to making FDMC an exceptional learning environment.

FDMC should be your first choice when thinking about the education and learning experiences of your son.
