About our school





De La Salle College, with its proud 112-year history, embodies the essence of a Lasallian community. Here, education goes beyond academic achievements, focusing on nurturing moral and spiritual growth. We strive to develop well-rounded individuals with a strong ethical compass, prepared to approach the world with compassion and resilience.Our College welcomes students from diverse faiths and backgrounds, fostering an inclusive and collaborative academic environment. Respect, challenge, and mutual understanding are at the core of our ethos. Recognising the individuality of each student and personalised education is paramount, we offer specialised programs including Accelerated Learning, Gifted and Talented Education, the Year 10 STRIVE Program, and Education Support Programs, catering to various learning styles and enabling each student to reach their full potential.

We provide VCE for our students and within VCE, students have the option to complete the traditional VCE pathway or the new Vocational Major Pathway. All students are able to include VET as part of their pathway. This prepares our students not only for academic success but also equips them for real-world challenges. As Principal Peter Houlihan often says, “De La Salle College is a Lasallian community with a place and pathway for all.” This statement captures our mission to foster young men of outstanding character, ready to contribute and lead in their chosen fields with quality, respect, and empathy. De La Salle College is not just about education; it’s about inspiring a lifelong journey of learning and character building.
