Head of College’s Message   

Valuable but affordable

Providing a Groves values based Christian education opportunity for your child is a valuable life choice to bless him or her with. Enabling opportunities for students to form firm foundations for life now and into eternity is one we are committed to. Therefore, to help make this valuable experience available to those who seek it we deliberately keep our fees affordable by:

  • Maintaining our clear not-for-profit focus - any operational surplus funds are reinvested into the school facilities to further enhance educational opportunities.
  • Only charging for a maximum of two students from any one family.
  • Adding value into the fees. For example:
    • Camps (including our Year 7 Canberra trip) are included in fees.
    • Our 1:1 quality computer supplied to secondary students on loan comes at no additional hire fee.
    • Compulsory field trips are included.
    • Sports transport to regular competitions is included.Valuable but affordable

I welcome your interest in our learning community. I invite you to join us.

God bless,
Allan Weir

Groves Christian College

An Introduction to Groves

Groves Christian College is an independent, co-educational, Christian school serving students from the Logan City and southern Brisbane districts. Our distance education team serves families and students throughout Queensland. Through our strategic educational partnerships we host and teach a range of international and interstate students via distance, blended and face to face modes of education.

 Groves is a fully accredited provider of Early Childhood Learning (including the approved Kindergarten program), Primary Schooling, Secondary Schooling, International Students Education, Training Certificates, and providing schooling through Distance Education.

A Brief History

Since 1999 Groves has been working with families to make a values based, Christian education available to all who desire it. Christian schooling considers the whole child. Our education fosters the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, ethical, aesthetic and emotional development of the children and young people in our College. We remain true to our purpose.

 Groves Christian College was named in honour of Anthony Norris Groves (1795-1853). Groves was a missionary first in Baghdad and then later in southern India. He is remembered for his faithful approach to mission work and empowerment of the local people.

 Groves is strengthened through its connections and its accountability

Groves is a well-established Christian College with proven management systems and an experienced leadership team. To remain fresh, focussed, connected and accountable Groves is part of and associated with a number of larger organisations.

We are accountable to our governing body, The Board of Directors of Christian Community Ministries (CCM). Our governing body oversees a number of similar schools across three states serving over 4000 students.

Groves seeks to promote the opportunity for as many families as possible to have the choice of quality Christian based education throughout Australia and beyond. To this end, we join with other like-minded Christian schools across Australia through our membership of Christian Schools Australia.

We are a non-state school or better still, an independent school. Independent schools have their own charter approved by and partially funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments. Therefore, since our commencement we have been a member of Independent Schools Queensland, an association that all levels of government recognise as the representative body of independent schools in Queensland.

Groves exists to offer high quality, valued based, Christian schooling to help families in the spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, ethical, aesthetic and emotional development of their children and young people. At Groves, we believe true wisdom starts from revering God. Our education is designed to help students discover the truth about God, themselves, people and the world. This equips and inspires our students to be better prepared to serve their families, communities, country and the wider world, to God’s glory and for the wellbeing of others. We pray our young people will embrace life as a purposeful journey of adventure enjoying and sharing God’s love in practical, creative, redeeming, and renewing ways. That is, Groves does not exist to hide children and young people from the world, rather to equip them well to transform the world as they respond to God’s calling on their lives.
Our mission is to engage, equip and challenge students to live God inspired, purposeful, fulfilled, loving lives now and into eternity. Our vision is young men and women with loving hearts and strong minds for God and His creation.
