Since it’s foundation in 1878, Christian Brothers College (CBC) St Kilda, has taught generations of inner-city Melbourne boys. The college believes that effective learning takes place when students are nurtured, cared for and have a strong sense of purpose. CBC sees education as a journey. One that starts long before Year 7 and goes long into adulthood. It is a fluid journey that traverses the boundaries of home and school life, one that is best taken with family and the school community working together. 

CBC St Kilda believes that the heart of their work with the teens involves the creation of forward - thinking boys’ education programs, so the college can meet the multifaceted needs of these 21st- century young men. As such, CBC St Kilda’s educational philosophy is built upon an awareness that there are two clear responsibilities the College has in this important area of contemporary education.  

The boys’ education philosophy stresses that CBC’s education of young men must be purposeful, optimistic and constructive. This is done by putting a great deal of effort into engaging with the many great qualities most boys bring to their education - especially their openness, engaging personalities, sincerity and enthusiasm. As well, ensuring the colleges programs are designed to productively respond to their students’ very reasonable expectations for developing in their learning; personal mastery, understanding, transparency, structure and explicit pedagogies.
