About Us

and Values


Sixty-five years ago a group of dedicated people with a clear vision brought St John Bosco’s pastoral vision to Melbourne’s rural Chadstone. Today, building developments and technological advancements communicate the College’s commitment to progress, while core pedagogical vision remains just as relevant as it was 65 years ago. Empowering young people to discover their own intrinsic goodness, while developing the skills and courage to express it in practical ways, is at the core of the Salesian Charism.

Salesian College Chadstone welcomes all boys and their families, celebrates diversity and promotes relationships built on mutual respect.
