History and Tradition

De La Salle Catholic College Revesby Heights is a Catholic systemic 7-12 College for boys, established in the Lasallian tradition of St. John Baptist De La Salle.

The De La Salle Brothers founded De La Salle College Revesby Heights in 1960 as a Years 5-10 school with enormous support from the two local Parish Priests of the time.

The College was the first Catholic school in Sydney to open with more lay teachers than religious and was primarily built by the voluntary labour of the parents and parishioners of the local parishes.

The De La Salle Brothers were responsible for the administration of the College until the end of 1992 when the first lay principal was appointed. Since its foundation, the College has had only six principals with a very stable administrative and teaching staff. The primary section of the College closed at the end of 1994.

The College has undergone many changes over the years; most notably, the transformation from a Year 7-10 school to that of a Year 7-12 school. In 2004, it was announced that the College would include HSC classes commencing in 2006, with the first HSC class graduating in 2007.
