Capalaba State High School, situated on 13.6 hectares of land in School Road, opened its doors to 189 Year 8 students in 1978. The school was built to meet the needs of booming residential developments in the Redland Shire.

Capalaba SHS was officially opened on 20 October, 1979. The school, with its HS-78 design, was a prototype for future Queensland high schools. It incorporates flexible teaching spaces and extensive landscaping designed to blend in with the buildings to provide a pleasant, peaceful learning environment. Over the years several facilities have been added to the original buildings. Through assistance from the State Government, Redland Shire Council and the Parents and Citizens Association the school now has a multi-purpose hall and an extensive sporting complex of courts and oval. In 2005, Capalaba State School amalgamated with Capalaba State High School to form Capalaba State College.

Capalaba State College provides a genuinely caring, socially just environment through effective and open communication within the total school community. This school offers a broad and balanced curriculum that encourages individual develop­ment and a striving for excellence, enabling all students to reach their potential as well as directing them towards responsible citizenship.
