As the only boy’s high school in the Illawarra, Edmund Rice College is in a rather unique position.

Drawing students as it does from all areas of the Illawarra, the College proudly points to its diversity as a particular strength of the College.

The rapid increase in student numbers to 1,100 students in 2018, a 38 per cent increase since 2012, reinforces this sense of cultural and geographic diversity.

The broad curriculum in place and the extent of the comprehensive co-curricular program is attractive to boys as it caters for such a wide range of interests.
