Established in 1912, De La Salle College has a long and proud history as a leader in Catholic boys’ education in Melbourne. Our years of experience coupled with a 21st-century approach to learning and teaching ensure that we are able to offer your son a holistic education tailored to suit his individual needs. Respect is the foundation of all relationships at our College and we promote a strong culture of social justice and a community of faith and excellence.

Curriculum: Our dynamic curriculum ensures students are academically challenged and have a choice of specialised learning pathways. Students study a core pathway at the primary years through to Year 8, with elective courses beginning in Year 9. Music, Art, Drama, and Design, Creativity and Technology are compulsory for one semester each at Years 7 and 8, after which they become electives. Students also study one semester each of French and Italian at Year 7, before choosing which they would like to continue with at Year 8. At Year 10 students have more than 45 subjects to choose from and in Years 11 and 12 can choose the VCE, VET or VCAL pathway that best suits their needs. Our academic focus is on personal excellence and every student is challenged and supported to achieve their full potential.

Sport: We are a member of the Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) and weekly sport is timetabled into the school day. Sport is an integral part of College life and a wide range of sports are offered, including hockey, soccer, chess, golf, basketball, cricket, Australian Rules Football, volleyball, tennis, cycling, badminton and table tennis. In addition to weekly fixtured sport athletics, cross country and swimming carnivals are held each year, giving students the opportunity to train in squads and compete at both school and ACC level. Teams are also run for weightlifting and skiing across the relevant seasons. 

Students in Years 7 to 9 who do not participate in sport during any term are part of our Immersion Program, giving students a unique educational opportunity to experience deep learning within an extended block of time. Engaging and exciting courses such as Crime and Punishment, Active Citizenship and Urban Impact are studied over 6-8 week periods.

Extra-curricula activities: Our extensive range of co-curricula opportunities complements classroom learning and provides a broadening of perspective for our students. We offer something to interest every student, including academic programs; debating; drama productions; private tuition in singing and musical instruments; band, orchestra and ensembles; overseas exchanges; community service opportunities; self-defence classes; participation in state and national academic competitions; and specialist enrichment and support programs.

In keeping with our Lasallian ethos students are expected to contribute to the community through volunteer and fundraising work for local and international communities, developing key leadership skills including selflessness, innovation and initiative, as well as compassion for others.


International programs: Our range of international programs offers students the opportunity to travel across the globe and enrich their understanding of the world around them. Students gain independence, give back to the local community and are immersed in different cultures. Exchanges to Italy and France are available for language students and each year community work programs in India, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines are offered.

School tours: De La Salle College does not have a designated priority parish catchment zone and can draw widely from all parts of Melbourne, with all parish primary schools given priority in the enrolment process. We invite you and your family to tour our College, meet our teachers and students and learn about our robust boys’ education program. College Tours are held once per month throughout each school term. Bookings are essential. For further information please visit our website.


Principal: Mr Peter Houlihan
