About Us

The Parade College story has always been one of flexibility – vital to providing a holistic education that will help your son adapt and thrive in today’s world.

Since our schools foundation by the Christian Brothers in 1871, we have devoted the last 152 years to providing boys’ education that is based on traditional values, but reflects what’s going on in today’s society

We offer a balanced education in modern facilities where your son can become a well-rounded individual with opportunities to excel academically, socially and physically.




Parade College is a member of the national body of Catholic schools known as Edmund Rice Education Australia (EREA). Parade College, in common with these schools, takes its inspiration from Br Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers. The values of the College are enshrined in the Charter for Edmund Rice Schools, and in the College Mission Statement.

The College aims to help young men grow into well rounded individuals who will make a meaningful contribution to society. In a vibrant learning community, students are encouraged to explore and develop their talents to the fullest and aim for excellence in all endeavours.

Our young men are challenged to achieve as highly as possible in their academic studies as they discern the appropriate pathway to their future ambitions. They are also encouraged through the various co-curricular offerings to grow into people of good heart who have healthy self-respect, who value right relationships with other people, and who can offer themselves in service to the needy and marginalized people in our society.

With long experience in responding to the particular educational needs of young men, the College offers many opportunities for growth through its sports programs, cultural activities, service to the community, retreats and liturgies, outdoor education, etc. These in turn provide many leadership opportunities.

Please enjoy discovering more about Parade College and its ministry to developing young men as you read these pages.
