Don Bosco College, Canlubang is a private Catholic educational institution owned and operated by the Salesians of Don Bosco. It was established on 1963 and located at Canlubang, Laguna, Philippines. In 1967, the Philippine government recognized that the courses in the institution was valid for a degree in Bachelor in Secondary Education (BSEd). Two years later, the school's curriculum for the course in Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIEd) was also approved. In 1972, the institution started an outreach program called Manpower Training Department (MTD) for low-income students. In 1995, DBC opened the college to extern (non seminarian) students. A year after, the population of extern students increased as the Bachelor of Science in Technical Education course was recognized by the DECS.

In 1996 two communities in Canlubang were formed due to restructuring: the Post Novitiate Community and Don Bosco College – the former focusing on the formation of young Salesians and the latter on education and on formation of young aspirants to religious life.

Don Bosco accepted its first batch of high school students in 1998, and its first batch composed of 47 young men graduated in 2002.It is also on this year that the college department began accepting female students.

In 2008 the Canlubang Community was again restructured; the Carreño House of Formation (seminary community) and the Don Bosco College (school community) were formed. This means that to date, three Salesian communities are nestled in Canlubang.

Starting 2009, DBC opens its grade school department exclusive for boys.
