Our co-educational Christian college is situated on sweeping, park-like acreage in the leafy suburb of Mount Gravatt. Visitors often remark upon the vast playgrounds hidden from the road, the green nature corridors, and the outdoor learning and leisure spaces devoted to college community use. We offer Early Learning, Prep, Primary and Secondary education on a campus connected by a beautiful arching bridge over Bulimba Creek. Our dynamic Christian learning community includes more than 80 staff members and two streams of students for each year level.

'Everything with God', our motto, is the umbrella that encompasses our approach. It:

  • informs our professional and personal lives
  • aligns our teaching staff
  • underlies our professional development
  • maps the way forward in relationships and serving our community, and
  • inspires our restorative student management practice.

We see innovation as working out the best use of human resources, and applying best practices in teaching and learning. We employ modern technology to enhance College communication, learning and teaching.

We encourage students to fully engage in the learning journey by understanding their own learning development and setting individual learning goals, ‘FAIL’ is an everyday occurrence because we see it as a natural part of every student’s ‘First Attempts in Learning’.

Whilst we value academic excellence and are known as one of Brisbane southside’s highflying schools, we value character development and student endeavour just as much.

We implement a strategy of carefully designed personal development programs, class camps and tours, opportunities to be involved in local and international service trips, chaplaincy programs and extra- and co-curricular activities, pushes students out of their comfort zones, helps them find passion and purpose, and assists them in developing skills and the mindset to lead fulfilled lives as good people who graduate from Brisbane Adventist College as effective, contributing, emotionally-intelligent members of society.


Leanne Entermann
College Principal

Brisbane Adventist College imparts far more than academic knowledge. It fosters the balanced development of the whole person—spiritual, physical, intellectual, and social-emotional—a process that spans a lifetime. There are four characteristics that make up who BAC is and what is about including:









BUILDING CHARACTER
Promoting a relevant and vibrant Christian ethos is part of the Adventist tradition. It is through participation and the College’s deep commitment to the holistic growth and development of each student, that we can become people of character.
TEACHING & LEARNING
Adventist Education has been a pioneer in education and we are proud of our heritage and traditions. BAC is a truly innovative and creative educator. A key focus is providing excellence in teaching and learning through a challenging and inclusive curriculum.
PERSONAL GROWTH
At BAC we believe our role is more than to provide knowledge; it is to build character by developing the whole person through personal growth, scholarly education, community service and spiritual awareness.
STRONG COMMUNITY
Being a BAC student and parent means that you become part of an extended school community. We are focused on developing and promoting a strong sense of community that enhances the educational program.

The College chaplaincy program is central to our provision of support for College students, school community and staff.  A chaplain's role is to:

  • Provide pastoral care
  • Lead the College spiritual development program
  • Play a key role in developing the social and emotional literacy of students within the community
  • Offer help and support to individuals and communities experiencing crisis or loss 

Working in partnership with form teachers, class teachers, parents, and year level coordinators, College chaplains play a proactive role in ministering to the wellbeing of the community on an individual and collective level.

Any day of the week, you will find them chatting with students in the playground, providing encouragement, supporting positive and restorative conversations, assisting in the formation of healthy relationships between students and staff, keeping an eye on vulnerable individuals, and assisting in student welfare. An open-door policy on both campuses allows anyone who wishes to reach out for friendly support and advice the opportunity to do so.

Charged with building and maintaining the spiritual dimension of BAC, chaplains organise weekly chapel services, voluntary Bible studies, and annual Week of Worship events (on both primary and secondary campuses). They also assist in providing community service opportunities such as the StormCo trip for Year 12 graduates to Mungindi--a fun, unique week of fellowship and service offered as a popular alternative to end of year schoolies week. These programs give individuals the opportunity to form stronger connections with God and their community.

A college community growing in wisdom, standing and in favour with God and man.
OUR MISSION

Intentional integration of faith and learning
Dedicated, professional Christian staff
A supportive, safe and stimulating environment
Comprehensive curriculum pathways to success
A balanced and rewarding extra-curricular program

 Kelsey Hayes - Graduate 2009

I spent a total of thirteen years at BAC from pre-school until my Year 12 graduation in 2009. School is incredibly influential on a young person’s life, and I am so grateful for the positive schooling experience I had. During my time at BAC I made lifelong friendships, was mentored by an incredible team of teachers, received an excellent education and I was faced with many challenges and opportunities that have helped to mould me into the young woman I am today.

I was given the great honour of serving as College Captain in my final year, which required a great deal of time and effort, but equipped me with invaluable skills that I have taken into my university degree. I am now in my third year studying a Bachelor of Architecture at Queensland University of Technology. I was blessed with a Vice-Chancellor’s scholarship at the commencement of my course, which is awarded not only on the basis of academic and leadership credentials, but also on a student’s commitment to community service. BAC has always had a heart for the community, whether it be raising money for appeals, throwing creative fundraisers for various charities or sending their students on STORM Co trips to remote areas of Queensland.

In my time at BAC, I was also able to foster a passion for music by learning the piano and flute and by being involved in both the worship and concert bands. BAC instilled in me a desire to strive for excellence in all things, but more importantly to honour Jesus above everything, a critical thing to remember when you’re a part of the cutthroat design industry. BAC provided a strong foundation for my spiritual journey with Christ, and I continue to worship and serve him passionately today as he guides me through this crazy thing called life! – Kelsey Hayes

Dear Parents

A fine education is about developing responsible global citizens and helping young people master important skillsets for the workforce. It should also be about identifying passion, purpose and individuality; essentially fostering an internal values system of integrity and character.

Brisbane Adventist College specialises in character. We help young people become good adults. In this environment, they learn how to learn, learn how to assess their options, learn how to extend themselves, learn how to contribute to the community, learn how their actions affect others, and learn how to chart a positive course for the future.

Please browse through school website and view our curriculum, specialist programs, and co-curricular activities. Read our charter documents and see how God fits into every part of College life. Peer into the faces of the children in these photos and read what they are up to on our news items and blogs. Take note of the stories of students who have left our College and what they are doing now.

All of these things will give you a sense of what we value and who we are as an Adventist education provider. You will recognise that we are dedicated to providing our best to the young people in our care.

At BAC, education is for life. I warmly invite you to come and see what our College is all about and look forward to welcoming your family into ours.

Mrs Leanne Entermann
