Swan Christian College seeks to teach and uphold Christian values with a particular focus on:
To seek to know and be known by God.
To be experienced as honest and fair.
To be acclaimed for kind treatment of all.
To aim to be the best we can be.
We seek to engage and grow the talents of all in our College, care for our resources and build our community for today and for all future generations.
To provide educational leadership and be a school of first choice for students, parents and educators.
The Kindergarten to Year 6 students make up the Junior School at Swan Christian College. Contained fully within the grounds of the wider school, classes for the first eight years of schooling are grouped in learning clusters with access to specialist facilities not usually available to primary aged children. With a comprehensive support network, students enjoy an opportunity to thrive and learn through a program that recognises their individual needs and learning styles.
Please feel free to make an appointment to explore the opportunities for your children at our school. With regular tours also available we would love to talk to you about the possibility of partnering with you in the education of your children.

Middle schooling is an intentional approach to the teaching, learning and pastoral needs of young people. There is no single model of middle schooling. Rather it includes a broad range of ways of organising Middle School including teaching and learning, pastoral and spiritual elements.
In broad terms, “Middle Schooling” usually refers to 10-15 year olds or a period described as early adolescence. Here at Swan our structure currently embraces a three part model of schooling: Years 10-12 Senior School, Years 7-9 Middle School and Kindergarten - Year 6 Junior School. At Swan Christian College we believe that early adolescence is a unique time of development and we aim to grow young people in knowledge and wisdom.

The simple fact of life is that the ‘traditional’ school model does not necessarily suit all students. Opened in June 2012 and operated as a trade-specific arm of Swan Christian College, Swan Trade Training Centre (STTC) provides quality trade training and career pathways in an innovative and supportive school-based environment.
The STTC offers a fixed two-year course over Years 11 and 12 allowing students to graduate from Swan Christian College with their WACE, including the successful completion of the Certificate III Business and Certificate II Pre-apprenticeship in their chosen trade course inclusive of work experience. Courses are developed with industry input that ensures the training offered is current and relevant.
Swan Trade Training Centre aims to produce confident, well-rounded students who become ‘top class’ apprentices equipped with industry grade skills and professionalism, and pride themselves on a job well done.

Swan Christian College is celebrating the outstanding academic success of its students in 2018. I would like to congratulate students on their academic achievements and excellent conduct throughout the 2018 school year.
As a leading coeducational school in Perth’s eastern suburbs, the College is delighted by the achievements of our Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) students and those who gained nationally recognised qualifications under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Some of the individual successes included College Dux Kaila Minotti achieving an ATAR of 99.25, Tahlia Mellor who achieved an ATAR of 98.4 and Gracie Butler who achieved an ATAR of 98.1. Both Kaila (Politics and Law) and Tahlia (Literature) received Certificates of Excellence which are awarded to students who rank in the top 0.5% in the state in a specific course.
>In 2018 the median ATAR was 79.05, with 14 students being inducted into the Excelsior Club having achieved a minimum ATAR of 90. Three students received a Certificate of Distinction which requires students to achieve A grades across their courses and/or certificates, a testament to their commitment to their studies. In addition, 18 students received a Certificate of Merit. 72% of students who applied for university entry received an offer for their first preference compared to the state average of 68%.
>Congratulations must also go to our Vocational Education and Training (VET) and General students who successfully completed so many courses and Certificates II and III.
We acknowledge and thank the teachers who delivered eight High Performing Courses in 2018. This is an excellent achievement and the result of much hard work by both teachers and students.
Once again Swan Christian College’s WACE achievement was higher than the state average at 98.32%, ranking the College among the top 50 schools in the state. The College’s graduates received a total of 225 AQF qualifications with many students achieving multiple qualifications.
