Christian Brothers College High School

Christian Brothers College is a Catholic, Lasallian high school preparing young men of diverse academic, social, racial, geographic, religious, and economic backgrounds for college and for life.

Christian Brothers College High School will create positive change in our community and world through the lives of our graduates:  young men who are Guided By Faith, Strengthened By Intellect, Committed To Justice, and Prepared To Lead & Serve.


Admission is based on the student’s desire for an education based on the philosophy of the Christian Brothers, his grades and standardized test scores from grade school, and a personal interview.  Students apply to CBC following the standard procedure for schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  Academic scholarships are available to high performing students.  More than $4 million in need-based financial aid and scholarships were granted in the 2020-2021 school year.


CBC offers a college preparatory curriculum designed to prepare all our students, with varying abilities, for college and for life.  This includes a four-year program in Religion, English, Science, Math, Social Studies, Spanish and French; electives in Religion, English, Social Studies, Math, Science, Fine & Performing Arts, and Business.  36 different college credit courses are offered in Math, Science, Social Studies, English, Theater and Religion through the 1818 Program at St. Louis University, the ACC Program at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and the Advanced Placement Program.  Additionally, CBC offers our STEM Academy, with four competitive Robotics teams and classes such as Principles of Engineering I & II, Technical Drafting, and Cybersecurity, AP Computer Science, Mobile App Development, and Aviation Science.  An ACT Prep Class is also part of the regular elective curriculum and is offered at no additional cost to our families.  CBC offers a fully integrated 1:1 laptop program that assures students will be prepared for the advanced technological requirements to be successful in the 21st century.  Technology at CBC High School also provides an unprecedented level of communication between teachers, students and parents, and an enhanced opportunity to learn through collaboration, both in-person and virtually.
