Mountains Christian College offers a high-quality education grounded in Christian values. Our commitment to academic excellence and faith-based principles shapes a person’s perspective on life.
All forms of education will have a particular perspective on life. No form of education is neutral as it will always be providing a particular lens through which students see the world and their place in it.
Christian education invites young people to see and understand the world through the perspective of God’s truth. While we promote academic achievement, we also desire that our students develop servant hearts and a Christ-like attitude to allow them to live their adult lives to the honour of God.
Being a non-denominational Christian school, staff at Mountains Christian College adhere to a Statement of Beliefs which includes teaching with a Christian worldview. Our Statement of Beliefs can be viewed here. Our teachers openly model and demonstrate Christian principles and we encourage them to succeed in school as well as their everyday lives.
Mountains Christian College is a member of Christian Education National (CEN), which connects similar schools to ours. CEN promotes a transformational Christian worldview where Jesus’ love, power and authority inform and guide all practice and community life – including leadership, management, teaching, curriculum, and effective governance.

Reasons to choose a Christian Education for your child
A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
Christian education invites young people to see and understand the world through the perspective of God’s truth.
The Bible becomes the lens through which students view what they are learning. The lens focuses their thinking on ultimate truth – a biblical and Christ-centred vision for life where the world is created and sustained by God; where God has acted in history to deal with the distortions of creation caused by human rebellion; and where history is advancing towards a new creation in which all things are reconciled to God through Jesus who is not only the climax of the biblical story but is also the focal point of the lens.
A Way of Living
All education and good parenting will have an age appropriate and gradual exposure to aspects and ideas in this world. Christian education is no different.
Christian education seeks to encourage its students to make good and wise choices for living and how those choices can affect the wellbeing of others. We desire for all our students to be skilled participants in the world and for them to be able to make wise and discerning decisions throughout their life.
PARTNERSHIP WITH PARENTS
Parents have the ultimate responsibility to educate their children towards a relationship with Jesus and a Christian way of living.
The Christian school community is a partnership with parents and the school sharing in this vision.
