Northside Christian College is a non-denominational, coeducational, Christian college that commenced in 1979. The college is committed to providing high quality Christian Education in a caring, encouraging, learning community to families of Melbourne’s northern suburbs. We aim to maximise the potential of every child, equipping them for lifelong learning and developing their character based on Biblical values.
Our mission and vision
Our mission, ‘Transforming lives through Christ and the wonder of learning’, articulates the college’s commitment to preparing a generation for lifelong learning in order that they have the capacity to make a positive difference in their community. Through the design and structuring of the college’s learning programs and modern learning environments, the college community is well equipped to nurture and develop the unique talent, gifting and interests of every child.
The college aims to challenge each student to achieve their best, while providing students with an opportunity to study a broad range of subjects. The college curriculum provides students with a great opportunity to study subjects across a wide range of learning areas. The college has developed the school curriculum to place a significant emphasis on literacy and numeracy.
In the Senior School (Years 10–12), our VCE program offers students small classes and an individualised approach to learning. Our VCAL programs offers a hands-on option for students in Years 11 and 12. For a growing family-friendly school, we offer a remarkable range of learning and co-curricular opportunities. Our college belongs to the Northern Melbourne Vocational Education and Training (VET) cluster and our students may choose from a wide array of VET courses offered in one of 52 schools.
As a Christian Learning Community, we have over 40 years of tradition in educating our students to live out the timeless values of perseverance, humility and integrity, preparing our young people for meaningful and purposeful engagement in every area of their lives.
Our Student Leadership Program provides opportunities for students to develop and put into practice their leadership potential in serving their fellow students and the wider community. We seek to be a ‘school without borders’, and increasingly work alongside local universities and other organisations to maximise access to high quality learning environments.
Our unique community
The Prep to Year 12 learning community at Northside Christian College has a small village feel, fostering a nurturing and caring environment where every child is valued. Our programs are designed to meet students’ individual needs, whatever they are, seeking to ensure that every child’s unique, God-given qualities are developed. High value is placed on the development of resilience, leadership and character throughout the college.
We look to the future with hope, confident of our calling and determined in our commitment to train a skilled and Godly generation of young people to take their place in the community, living purposeful lives in God’s service.
It is our prayer and desire that every student will have a positive experience at school. A positive experience involves students developing healthy relationships, achieving their personal best, maintaining physical and emotional wellbeing and developing a greater understanding of Christian faith and character.
