Christian Brothers College, Burwood (CBC Burwood) was a Catholic high school located in Burwood, Sydney Australia.

The school was founded in 1909. It was announced on 25 March 2008 that the school would close at the end of 2009, due to a decline in enrolments arising from a change in demographics in the suburbs surrounding the school.[1] At closing, it taught boys from Year 7 to Year 10.

There is the demolition of the school chapel, the school grotto, the lower yard classrooms, and the old wall ball court. But the brothers house will stay up and other buildings.
