Calen State School via Mackay opened on 24 February 1925 after being gazetted on 19 February 1925. The first Head Teacher was Honoria Mary Doherty. In 1963 secondary years 8 - 10 were added, and years 11 and 12 in 1991. Preschool No.4380 was established on 1 June 1980, but this was absorbed by the state school.

On 18 February 2004, the Minister for Education approved a name change to Calen District State College to better reflect the range of levels available at the school.
