Edmund Rice College commenced in 1926 in Crown Lane, Wollongong making it one of the oldest Schools in the Illawarra. The College began as Christian Brothers’ College (CBC). In 1962 the school partially moved to West Wollongong on Mount Keira Road after the College had purchase 9 hectares of land to build a new campus for Years 9 to 12. By 1975 the College completely moved to the West Wollongong campus where the College has remained there to the present day.
