CBC Mount Edmund is an independent English Medium Catholic School situated in Pretoria. The college provides quality education for boys and girls from Grade RRR to Grade 12.
Founded on 8 September 1922 in the Administrative Capital of South Africa, Gauteng, CBC Mount Edmund has always maintained a culture of inclusivity under the Edmund Rice Tradition. CBC Mount Edmund was the first boys’ school in Pretoria to open its doors to learners from all races as well as expanding to include both boys and girls from 1994. We are the only Private Catholic School that is a Co-Educational and a Combined School in Pretoria.
CBC Mount Edmund is rooted in teaching Gospel Values. Over and above the strong academic programme offered by the skilled and qualified teachers, we aim to develop independent learners who are critical thinkers, with Jesus Christ at the centre of what they do. We are founded under the Edmund Rice Tradition, which means we are part of a worldwide network of schools. Staying true to our values of FAITH, LEADERSHIP, EXCELLENCE, is what makes us a true school of excellence.
The simple answer is that we teach Gospel Values:
* We teach social responsibility by reaching out to the needy.
* We reach out to our neighbouring communities.
* Each student gets the opportunity to reach their full potential.
* Our student leadership is modelled on the example set by Christ.
* Hospitality and responsibility towards one another.
Justice, Mercy and Honesty
* Excellent discipline system with a clear Code of Conduct.
* Restorative justice.
* Acknowledgement of good behaviour.
We are a proud, faith-based family college that cares about accompanying every child on their life journey towards achieving excellence.
Our Pastoral Care consists of our fulltime Educational Psychologists, our fulltime Chaplain as well as Life Orientation teachers who regularly meet to ensure that the emotional and spiritual welfare of our learners is nurtured and enhanced.
The college also affords all its Catholic learners an opportunity to enhance their Sacramental development. The spiritual growth of each person is at the heart of everything we do.
Reaching out to others gives learners at CBC Mount Edmund the opportunity to realise their own responsibility to assist those who are in need. Our values-based education creates opportunities for our learners to become socially responsible and able to identify the needs in our community and to respond appropriately.
The leadership style of the college is modelled according to the example of Jesus Christ and we instill an understanding of servant leadership in all our staff and learners alike.
We offer excellent education with a wide range of subjects. Our staff are appropriately qualified and at the forefront of their fields of expertise. Our academic rigour is aimed at developing young adults with the ability to choose from a variety of options at tertiary level.
