What is a catholic education?

Catholic Education is an integral part of the Education System in Australia as it delivers high-quality traditional academic teachings along with the Catholic values and ethos of the Catholic Archdiocese.  Differing from your average public schools, Catholic schools are highly regarded and designed to produce a high-quality level of study all the while teaching values and respect.

The De La Salle Brothers have established thousands of schools across the world, guided from their founder, St John Baptist, de La Salle. The De La Salle Brothers hold a high standard of schooling intertwined with teachings of core values such as faith, respect and social justice in every one of their catholic schools in Adelaide and across the globe.
