“2019 Matric Results”

8 September 2022 – how will you celebrate?

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.
