Christian Brothers College High School (CBC High School), is a Lasallian Catholic college preparatory school for young men in St. Louis, Missourimarker. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Louis and is owned and operated by the De La Salle Christian Brothers Midwest District.

History and evolution

The school was founded in 1850 by three Christian Brothers who had come to St. Louismarker the previous year from Montrealmarker, Quebecmarker. In 1851, the school moved from its original location at 16th and Market Streets to 8th and Gratiot Streets in downtown St. Louis, and the name changed to the "Academy of Christian Brothers." In December 1855, the school was granted a college charter, becoming the Brothers' first U.S. institution to operate at the collegiate level.

In 1882, due to lack of space, the school moved to the "Cote Brilliante" campus in north St. Louis on the northeast corner of Easton Ave. and N. Kingshighway, where it served as a primary, secondary, and college boarding school for boys. At one point in the 1890s, more than half of St. Louis' clergy were graduates of Christian Brothers College.

On October 5, 1916, a fire destroyed the school and killed ten people (7 firefighters, 2 sick Brothers, and 1 nurse). PictureWashington University allowed CBC to use the former Smith Academymarker building for the rest of the academic year.

For several years, the brothers taught in parish schools until a new "Christian Brothers College High School" was built at University Lane and Clayton Road in Clayton'smarker Hi-Pointe neighborhood. The school building was opened in 1922 and enlarged several times over the following decades to accommodate increasing enrollment. Picture

CBC was also home to an Army JROTC program. In earlier years, JROTC was mandatory, but it later became a voluntary program, and was disbanded in 1993 due to low enrollment.

In 1998, the CBC Board of Directors announced that the school would move again, this time to a new campus in west St. Louis County, eight miles west of the Clayton campus. The property is located at the northwest corner at the intersection of US-40 and I-270. It is nestled close to Missouri Baptist University. The first academic year at the current campus was 2003-2004.

In January 2006, CBC announced plans to begin drug testing all of its students. The school became the first private school in the St. Louis area to implement such testing, and the proposal received widespread press coverage. CBC started its drug testing program in the 2007-2008 academic year.[216095][216096]
