Portside Christian College

New Port SA

Junior School

We believe the Primary years of education set the values for the rest of life. It is during these vulnerable, formative years that the foundations for knowledge, attitudes and belief are laid. Our Junior School operates as the Early Years (Foundation to Year 2) and Primary Years (3 to 6).

We provide a nurturing, supportive and structured environment to give our students the confidence to explore and learn collaboratively. Christian values are strongly emphasised, with the focus on developing each student’s character and success.

Middle School

Middle Years students identify their interests and talents through a range of subjects and disciplines in preparation for Senior School. We recognise the importance of deep and applied knowledge, as well as providing opportunities for students to develop the softer skills such as personal and time management, goal setting, critical thinking and collaboration. Homeroom teachers mentor students spiritually with daily devotions, encouraging them to seek God and know Him personally.

Senior School

Our Senior students are given a high degree of personal attention and are prepared for tertiary or further study by a committed team of teachers who mentor and coach.

Students complete SACE through core Stage 1 and Stage 2 subjects and access to elective subjects to suit their tertiary requirements. This may include a wide range of Certificates through our VET program, including those available on site at our Trade Training Centre. 

Our dynamic work placement program enables students to gain valuable experience and a taste of future career pathways.

Our graduates have successfully completed a range of university degrees and trades and graduate with a sense of purpose, service and aspirations for their future career.
