Men for Tomorrow


This phrase means so much to us at CBC. It is more than just a motto, it is our mission. Every member of the CBC community is committed to preparing our young men for their future while giving them the opportunity to be a part of a brotherhood that will last a lifetime.


This is our promise to our students and families. CBC prepares young men to be successful in college and throughout their careers. Even more important is the development of men of faith who are prepared to lead, serve and love people of all backgrounds.
The Lasallian philosophy of education is guided by five core principles. These principles provide the framework for our development of young men who are prepared for their tomorrow.

Faith in the Presence of God

- We believe in the living presence of God in our students, our community and our world. At CBC, every class begins with a prayer and every prayer begins with the following recollection; "Let us remember that we are in the Holy Presence of God."

Quality Education

- CBC serves students at all academic levels and helps every young man achieve his full potential. The CBC Honors Program offers a rigorous academic curriculum that prepares high-achieving students to attend the best universities in the country. Additionally, our Learning Resource Center assists students in areas where they might otherwise struggle.

Concern for the Poor and Social Justice

- Through classroom instruction, association with a diverse community and hands-on service, our students come to understand and respect all of God's children. Every Cadet provides a minimum of 132 hours of service throughout his four years. The CBC student body delivers more than 32,000 hours of service to the community every year.

Respect for all Persons

- We recognize and celebrate the strengths of every student and all people. CBC's ability to serve and inspire students at all  academic levels and with a variety of God-given talents is truly unique among St. Louis private high schools. 

Inclusive Community

- We are so proud that our school community includes young men from across the St. Louis region. Research has proven that all students benefit from this inclusive philosophy, as it allows young men to better understand the world around them and prepares them for life-long success.
