Choosing the best college for your son takes time and careful consideration. This year Parade College takes great pride in celebrating 150 years at the Bundoora Campus and celebrates the 10 year anniversary since the opening of the Preston Campus.
As a Catholic Boys College specialising in boys’ education since 1871, our aim has been to provide a quality education, based on an education rich in achievements, and happy memories which contribute in helping our boy’s grow into balanced and well-rounded individuals.
Our Future student families have the option of choosing either the Bundoora or Preston campus at enrolment. Both campuses offer a fully integrated curriculum, state-of-the-art facilities, learning environments that are nurturing and supportive, and excellent opportunities for academic, social, cultural and sporting growth. Your son will have everything needed to flourish. We recommend that you gain a first-hand impression of what a Parade College education has to offer - a campus tour for you and your son with select dates on offer throughout 2022. We can then also provide further detail on our unique approach to:
- Pastoral Care
- Support for additional needs students including gifted and talented students
- Engaging with the local community in a compassionate manner through serviceCampus Tours
The College also offers a limited number of academic Scholarships for future and current high achieving students. Currently there are two types of Scholarships offered at Parade College. For more information please view the Scholarship Program
As Parade College takes its inspiration from Brother Edmund Rice, founder of the Christian Brothers and the values of the College are enshrined in the Charter for Edmund Rice Schools, and in the College Mission Statement, Br. Rice wanted schools to be open to all people, irrespective of their financial means.
Parade College is also committed to offering bursary support for prospective students, which is only at the discretion of the College Principal Mr. Andrew Kuppe. For further information on bursaries please contact the Enrolment Officer.
