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 centrally located campuses – Tiverton, Holy Eucharist and Kinnoull. Each campus is aligned 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 and evolving technologies ensure our students reach their full potential throughout their education.

Our extensive range of co-curricular opportunities complements classroom learning and provides a broadening of perspective for our students. Our rich music and drama programs cater for students interested in the performing arts, with performance and private tuition available. We offer various sports choices for students at school level, as well as state level competitions.

We are committed to social justice and helping others and students participate in fundraising or volunteer initiatives throughout each year. We prepare our students to fully participate in society with the skills for life-long learning and a foundation based on the Lasallian faith experience to value, respect and welcome all.

De La Salle College has quickly built a solid reputation for delivering very effective remote learning, and for the monitoring of students’ progression and providing programs to boost mental health and general wellbeing.
