To provide excellence in Christ-centred education in partnership with families within a caring Christian community.

Chairo Christian School is established on two strong foundations. We believe that Jesus Christ is Lord over every single part of life (including the education of children) and that God has given parents the responsibility of nurturing and educating their children.

I am grateful to be part of a passionate team at Chairo that takes these two foundations seriously and strives to honour God and make Him known in all areas of teaching, learning, experience and endeavour. Chairo provides an educational experience that is intentionally designed to celebrate diversity, foster individual gifts and enhance learning while revealing God and His creation. We are committed to valuing each student and discovering their personal qualities, while encouraging them to develop the abilities that God has given them. Our aim is to work in close partnership with families to develop students who live with integrity, grow in confidence and demonstrate a healthy sense of self and others. Our school communities are filled with young people of great character who are equipped to live lives of purpose, contributing positively to the communities they belong to. It is so exciting and rewarding to be part of their journey!

In New Testament Greek, the word 'chairo' means 'to rejoice'! The families who pioneered our school wanted this place to be one where all community members were full of delight and joy. Over thirty years later, we still feel the same way. While we can be thankful for wonderful staff members, great facilities and strong educational outcomes, this is not what families believe exemplifies our school. They value the atmosphere of hope, opportunity, encouragement and faith-filled lives that students and families experience at Chairo. May you and your family discover more about the life of the Chairo community. Our hope is that you will discover for yourself how Chairo can enable learning that lasts a lifetime!

Chairo's Leongatha Campus is new from 2014, having previously operated for 35 years as Leongatha Christian School and then South Coast Christian College.
