Originally founded in 1935 in Green Point, CBC St John’s relocated to the diverse and rapidly developing suburb of Parklands in 2003. Over the past 13 years, the College has grown phenomenally and last year we celebrated 80 years of holistic education in Cape Town.

We provide our students with an enriched, holistic education within an environment where faith, family, excellence and diversity are celebrated. We aim to produce students who are meaningful contributors to a world requiring social advocacy, compassion, tolerance and innovative thinking. Our motto Ora et Labora (Prayer and Work) encapsulates our believe that spiritual development is seen as an integrated component of education. From our Little Saints in the Preschool through to the Saints in Training in our Junior School and onto the Saints Among Us in the Senior School, our dedicated and passionate teachers and staff ensure that the transitions between the various grades and phases are effortless.

In keeping with our family values, our Semper Fratres programme links our Grade One and Matric students in a mentorship programme aimed at fostering a sense of brother and sisterhood.
