Welcome to the Edmund Rice College website. I trust that in browsing this website you gain some insight into this wonderful inclusive Catholic community.

Edmund Rice College is an independent Catholic boys school in the Edmund Rice tradition, catering for Students in Years 7 to 12 located in the heart of the Illawarra. Wonderfully diverse in its nature, the College welcomes boys from all over the Illawarra providing young men with a wide array of educational experiences and opportunities.

Our focus is to foster the development of boys into fine young men through a holistic approach to education. We celebrate both the individuality and diversity of our 1100 students and strive to enable each to achieve in a way that embraces their individual gifts and unlocks the potential to be what they are capable of becoming.

Learning at Edmund Rice College is focused on how boys best learn. An innovative and contemporary curriculum provides opportunities for boys to be creative, articulate, collaborative and reflective. Boys are encouraged to take risks in their learning and to make mistakes as they challenge themselves and problem solve.

The College prepares boys for the contemporary world encouraging, leading and assisting them to develop the necessary adaptive and universal skills as they choose academic and vocational pathways that prepare them to be successful in the 21st century world
