The Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) is a group of Catholic boys schools in Victoria, Australia. The Association was formed in 1948. The Combined Catholic Schools Association involving a number of schools conducted by the Christian Brothers held its first athletics meet in 1902 [The Argus 31 October 1929]. Other Catholic schools conducted by other male religious orders such as the De La Salle Brothers, Marist Brothers etc. also participated in the competition. The ACC provides the basis for interschool sporting and other competitions between the member schools.
