Cheung Chuk Shan College was founded in 1969 as an aided and co-educational school by a group of philanthropists of the Five Districts Business Welfare Association to provide education for the less privileged children in Hong Kong in memory of the father of Messrs. Cheung Yok Luen and Yuk Leung.

The School commenced its operation on 10 September 1969. Its inauguration ceremony was officiated by , the then Governor of Hong Kong, on 6 October 1970. At the beginning, only twelve classes from Form 1 to Form 3 were run, a total of 445 students. In September 1971, there were 22 classes, including two Form 5 Arts and Science classes, which first sat for the Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination in May 1972. Subsequently, two Form 6 Arts and Science classes were opened with its first batch of students participating in the University of Hong Kong Matriculation Examination in April 1974. The School then became a secondary school with 29 classes and an enrolment of approximately 1,100 students.

Up to the late 1990s, more emphasis was put on academic performance over extracurricular activities. Several different teams responsible for the activities were set up to promote social awareness, cultivate positive behaviour and advocate whole person development. For example, funded by the Quality Education Fund, the Sunflower Scheme was initiated by the school in 1996 to encourage students to join more activities and strike a balance among the five aspects of whole-person education, i.e. moral 德, intellectual 智, physical 體, social 群 and aesthetic 美.
