140 Years of Educative Excellence

A Christian Brothers College education is a call to an exciting future. Students in our Community Children’s Centre, Junior and Senior Campuses explore their full potential through a diverse curriculum. World Class facilities and a commitment to enquiry based, problem solving STEM based education, ensures learning is deep, contextual, rigorous and relational.

Whether students are engaging in entrepreneurial business as part of our gifted program, engaging in Music industry research in state of the art digital Music labs, programming robots, designing a new component on a 3D printer, engaged in a VET/TAFE or Diploma University course, volunteering at St Vinnies or participating in the highest levels of national and international sport; CBC students make the world a better place. Old Collegians of note include: Paul Vasileff (2017 Young Australian of the Year), Vice Admiral Ray Griggs (2nd in command of the Australian Military) and Olympic Rowing Medalist Jaime Fernandez.

For 140 years, CBC has enjoyed a long tradition of excellence in boys education. We warmly invite you to visit the College to discover your son’s amazing potential.

Centre of Innovation and Learning

Christian Brothers College is proud to announce its latest iconic development of a new Centre of Innovation and Learning.

Situated on CBC’s Senior Campus at 214 Wakefield Street the new development will provide a contemporary and state-of-the-art learning environment for students as well as an exciting architectural icon in the heart of Adelaide. The building’s design strongly references the use of crystallised geometric forms, with associated complex mathematics which pays tribute to one of its multi-function uses which is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s) and Mathematics facility (STEAM) incorporating innovative art, music, study and collaborative maker spaces.

The centre’s ecological roof deck classroom, specifically designed for student led STEAM study and experiments in ecologically sustainable development, and the purpose-built astronomy observatory will offer students the opportunity to engage and learn in a practical and hands-on environment where boys learn most effectively.

The educational vision shared by the College and our collaborative partners, Swanbury Penglase, is for an uncompromising facility which maximises the educational opportunities for boys. Featuring the use of natural materials with simple colours and textures, complemented by controlled natural and artificial lighting, refined acoustics, fresh air movement and internal planting, creating a high-quality learning environment. The centre will form an integral part of the Senior Campus precinct with multiple above ground walkways to adjoining buildings whilst opening up the Western Courtyard’s previously underutilised space with ample undercover leisure and breakout areas for students.

The development is scheduled for completion in 2019. For further information about this project visit
