About our school
Christian Brothers’ College Boksburg opened on the 4th of February 1935. The College is a Catholic centred school built on the traditions of the founder of the Christian Brothers, Blessed Edmund Ignatius Rice.
The College is nestled on 22, 5 acres of land in Central Boksburg. The spacious campus as well as the up to date facilities offer opportunities for all boys to strive for excellence during their time at the College and beyond that, as Old Boys. The College is divided into three sections namely, The Primary, Preparatory and High School, with Day and Boarding options .The school provides quality education with an emphasis on moulding “Boys of Character into Men of Honour.”
Besides an effective academic programme, there is a wide variety of co-curricular activities and enrichment programmes to ensure that there is abundant opportunity for all boys to develop their potential and excel in their areas of talent or interest. It is through these areas that ‘life-long bonds’ are forged amongst the boys.
We instil in our pupils the value of giving to the poor, giving of their time and giving of their "riches". Above all we strive to nurture and develop each individual to his optimum God given potential while incorporating the College Motto, “Ora et Labora”- “Pray and Work “ , into our lives.
Our purpose is to develop honest, enthusiastic, caring and competent young men, equipped to take on the challenges of life.
