Oxley Christian College is a coeducational Christian day school with a total enrolment of around 1,000 students. The Early Learning Centre, known as Oxley Kids, encompasses pre-school / kindergarten for children aged 3-4 years old. The Junior School covers Prep to Year 6; while the Senior School encompasses Years 7 through 12. Students in Years 7-9 are part of the ‘Middle Years’, while students in Years 10-12 are part of the ‘Senior Years’.
In offering a complete educational experience – from Early Learning to Year 12 – the College fosters a sense of community, security and belonging, where interaction between all year levels is encouraged as an important aspect of social development.
Each student is assigned to one of three competition groups called Houses. Friendly Inter-House competition in various sports fosters the qualities of co-operation and team loyalty, while roles of responsibility at all Year levels – Home Group Captains, Junior and Senior School House Captains, and College Captains and Vice-Captains – nurture the development of leadership skills.
The Oxley environment is one of friendliness and warmth, characterised by a recognition of the importance of courtesy, mutual respect, and concern for the welfare of others. Staff-student relations are excellent.
All staff are committed to the personal and spiritual wellbeing of their students, offering support and direction whenever they are needed. Home Group Teachers, Year Level Coordinators and the College Chaplain are also available at all times to provide guidance and counselling.
Consultation with parents is seen as another vital aspect of responsible pastoral care.
Congratulations to the 2010 Oxley College Dux - Beth Taylor, on her fantastic ATAR score. Beth received a score of 99.7, including two perfect scores in Accounting and Psychology. Beth came to Oxley College in Kinder and this year juggled school leadership responsibilities with her heavy study load.
Beth managed this stellar result even though she had three individual exams on one day! She is now looking to commence a Commerce / Arts degree at Monash University where she has been offered a scholarship. Congratulations Beth, we are all very proud of your achievements and wish you the best for your future!
