An Enriched Academic Program
Students at Noosa Christian College are given opportunities to develop a spirit of teamwork, to achieve personal goals, and to develop a strong, positive character. A broad range of experiences are provided to ensure that life at school is always full. We are proud to offer a quality academic program in a supportive environment that allows students to reach their full potential.
Nuturing Spirit, Mind and Body
Recognising that education is more than just academics - Noosa Christian College engages learning through programs that build the Mind, Body and Heart of each individual. We incorporate our Christian ethos into our programs and encourage students to live by our College values of respect, responsibility effort, compassion, service and integrity. Our College also provides a range of stimulating outdoor activities to further develop the physical aspects of learning.
The ethos of Noosa Christian College is to inspire and lead students into a relationship with God. We believe that each student is precious because they are God’s individual creation with a unique purpose for their lives. As such, our College is committed to providing a variety of opportunities and support structures that facilitate spiritual and emotional growth during the formative - and sometimes unsettled - teenage years.
There are opportunities during both class time and across combined activities on campus for prayer, mentoring, demonstration of values and shared worship/praise. Year Co-ordinators for each class meet with their students at the beginning of each day for roll marking and a scripture/devotional time. Our College Chaplains are also a positive support to our Secondary students through additional services outside of class time.
Pastor David Reilly and Mrs Catherine Campbell are our College Chaplains. They work in the Primary and Secondary areas with Teaching staff and are involved in organising and providing a range of services and activities including, Bible Studies, Counselling Support, Chapel Programs, Wow Week and our 'Buddy System'.
Building Pathways to Success
We are ….
At Noosa Christian College, we are the very essence of a Small School with a Big Heart.
We believe that the success of your child is dependent upon the development and nurturing of positive and proactive relationships and partnerships between our staff, yourself and your child.
Our College provides students with opportunities to pursue success along a variety of pathways, be they spiritual, academic, physical, artistic, emotional or social.
Building a Future
The focus of our curriculum and extracurricular activities is upon equipping all learners with the necessary knowledge and skills to be active, adaptable, confident and positively contributing members within the ever-changing 21st Century landscape.
Our aim is for our students to make a positive difference in the world, both now and in the future, creating a rewarding and purposeful life.
Building Resilience, Persistence and Problem Solving Skills
Our children may face stress, anxiety, uncertain futures, a fast paced lifestyle and peer pressure. This can greatly affect their decision making and wellbeing. At our school, we focus upon the development of life skills that nurture resilience, persistence and problem solving to enable flexibility in thinking and making good choices.
Our college engages learning through holistic programs and activities that build the Mind, Body and Heart of each individual.
Building a Sense of Belonging
At our college, we view each child as an individual who has the options of traveling along various learning pathways to maximise their personal potential.
Our team of experienced educators will work with you and your child to optimise their opportunities for success. Your child can undertake a seamless learning journey being supported, by our education team, from Kindy to Year 12.
Our mission is to actively build relationships and provide every student with a holistic education, engaging them in a community of faith and learning so that they develop character, values and skills for life.
The values of respect, responsibility, effort, compassion, service and integrity underpin everything that we do and provide clear guidelines and expectations for how each person acts and interacts with each other.
These values are reflected in Matthew 7:12, where it states, ‘so in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you’ and in Philippians 4:8, ‘whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things’.
By partnering with you, we hope to work together to support your child to flourish.
We would love it if you would accept an open invitation to visit our family community set within a beautiful natural landscape and discover for yourself what makes us such a unique and special learning environment.

"As parents, we feel incredibly blessed each day that our son attends Noosa Christian College. At the end of every school day we hear about his dedicated, supportive and caring teacher and fellow students.
Our son's educational needs are consistently monitored and catered for; his academic achievements have and continue to excel.
Noosa Christian College promotes a wholesome community spirit and we couldn't speak more highly of this wonderful school".
E & P Longmate
"Our child has been with Noosa Christian College since Prep and is now in Grade 7. We highly recommend the Primary School at Noosa Christian College as the level of education gained does not compare with other local schools from our various conversations with parents from the Cooroy/Noosa area. We were unsure how our child would cope with a smaller High School, but our concerns have been unfounded. The course material, homework, and extra-curricular sporting activities have provided a stimulus that you would find at any of the larger schools. We have not been disappointed and look forward to our child continuing her High School through Noosa Christian College.
As parents, we believe that a smaller populated high school enhances the teacher-student communication as well as building life-long relationships with other students.
I have also found that if we see the younger Grades outside of school and they we have a familiar uniform, they will turn to their parent and tell them that we are at their school - I like that sense of school community"
Mrs Donna Markert
"The Noosa Christian College really is the coast's best kept secret when it comes to schooling. We transferred our daughter from a State School during Term 1 of her Prep year and have been extremely pleased with our choice. She has had an incredible year with teaching staff that are warm and friendly and take the time to get to know each of their students and tailoring activities to ensure that they are getting the best out of the children. Learning is taken seriously whilst the strong values are evident in all facets of the school.
The atmosphere is welcoming from the Principal through to the teaching staff and all support staff - nothing is too much trouble. Our daughter has found somewhere that she can learn, grow and discover her inner self in a nurturing environment that has seen her shine beyond our expectations.
The small and intimate nature of the school is paramount in ensuring that this beautiful little community that we belong to remains in place for many years to come. We are excited to have our son join the community in 2017 as the first year of the new Kindergarten begins. We have no doubt that this school is the best place for our children."
Mrs Ally Harding
"We have absolutely loved our Kindy experience this year. We have felt that the teachers go over and above to make each family feel part of the Kindy family. They communicate openly about issues and are happy to have a chat when needed. They are authentic and generous with their love for each child and really get to know them and what makes them tick.
Our daughter is always excited about going to Kindy, playing in the lovely outdoor area or engaging in an activity indoors. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to her schooling."
"Kindy at Noosa Christian College is amazing! We feel incredibly blessed to have found such a caring community for our child. The teachers are exceptional. They create a warm, inviting, calm and safe environment for little learners where quality learning experiences take place. We love Kindy at Noosa Christian College!"
