Character... Through Nurture, Learning and Service
Edinburgh College, Lilydale VIC
Welcome to Edinburgh College. We are a private Christian school owned and operated by Seventh-day Adventist Schools (Victoria) Ltd. We provide a comprehensive education program, from Early Learning to Year 12, delivered by committed staff with a love of teaching.
The size of our school gives us the opportunity to truly understand each student’s individual learning journey, and to provide a high level of support and care from our talented and dedicated staff.
While we are welcoming to students of all faiths and cultures, our education is Bible-based, Christ-centred and child safe. The school’s policies, procedures and practices are designed for the Special Character of Adventist Education.
Thank you for your interest in our school. If you have any questions or would like to take a tour, my door is always open.
The educational activities of the College are designed to provide opportunities for all students to achieve their maximum development intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically.
The process of education involves the continued development of a set of values upon which all decisions depend. Christian Education seeks to enhance sensitivity to values that are in harmony with God's will. The development of character and personality based upon a love for God, unselfish concern for others and personal self-respect, are basic to all curricular objectives.
Seventh-day Adventists believe in the reality of God the Creator, and that we are created in God's image. We believe the aim of Christian Education is the restoration of the image of God in people through Jesus Christ.
We believe that an understanding of the world and ourselves is enhanced by an acceptance of the Bible as a measure of reality and truth. We have intelligent powers of choice and are accountable to God in every aspect of life.
Edinburgh College provides a broad and balanced curriculum that gives every student the opportunity to experience and excel in activities outside of the classroom.
Among these opportunities are a variety of musical, sporting, outdoor education, STEM, performing arts and communitity service activities.

We at Edinburgh College know ‘WHY we come to work each day’. We believe and prayerfully promote the wonderful daily invitation of ‘taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him’ (Psalms 34:8).
Our mission is to develop children of character in a faith nurturing environment that promotes academic excellence and a commitment to service. Our caring, talented and dedicated Edinburgh College staff and volunteers endeavour to be the best educators and support officers possible. We strive to understand each of our student’s individual learning journeys; their learning preferences, what inspires them, how they can turn failure and/or disappointment into a growing opportunity, and why it is valuable to be Respectful, Responsible, Resilient and to have a Willingness to Learn in any given community.
Our Crest clearly reflects our ‘Why’: The crown on the crest recognises that God, in the form of the three members of the Trinity, is at the head of all that occurs at the school. This acknowledgement is supported by the motto “In Him We Live” and encapsulates the view that God is an integral part of our lives. The open Bible and the dove indicate that the school is guided by the Word of God as enlightened by the Holy Spirit. The laurel garland on the sides represents the prize of achievement.
We believe and prayerfully promote the wonderful daily invitation of ‘taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him’ (Psalms 34:8).
