About Us

Founded in 1912, De La Salle College provides a Catholic education in the Lasallian tradition for students in Years 5 — 12. A non-zoned Catholic boys’ school; De La Salle College welcomes students throughout the Melbourne metropolitan area.

The College educates over 1,000 students across three campuses – Tiverton, Holy Eucharist and Kinnoull. Each campus is designed for each stage of your son’s development. The College has an open enrolment policy and provides a contemporary learning community that encourages and supports personal excellence.

Our holistic learning environment and specialised programs ensure De La Salle students are challenged and supported throughout their school years. We provide a variety of pathways including VCE, VET and VCAL and our students learn in a community of faith and growth, founded on a culture of social justice. Our support networks, committed teaching staff, extensive co-curricular options and evolving technologies ensure our students reach their full potential throughout their education.

The College’s strong VCE results have continued their impressive pattern of recent years with high numbers of students attaining ATARs in the 90s. 2020 VCE results are particularly notable given the interruptions to onsite learning, with an exceptional 31.57% of ATARs in the 80 — 99.95 range. This is a credit to our students’ resilience, ambition and their teachers’ professional and flexible approaches throughout COVID-19.

Join us for a College tour to find out why the College is the right choice for your son.

Be Your Best at De La Salle College.
