A Positive Culture Where Young People Thrive
We’re a community where our students are well known, well loved and well supported. Students want teachers who notice them, ask about their interests, listen to them, laugh with them and believe in them. Positive relationships are the bedrock of our school community.
We want our students to know how uniquely gifted they are, how to manage their thoughts and feelings, and what they can do with those gifts and abilities.
Our teachers speak words of life and hope as they work with students to unlock their potential and equip them with the right skills to thrive in a technologically complex world.
What Our Parents Say
Parents are the best advocates for our school. Our community flourishes because parents partner with our teachers in the best interest of the children. Here's what some of our parents have to say about ACC Burnie.
Character Formation Pays Lifelong Dividends
We believe that who students become is more valuable than what they know. What they know is important, however character traits like resilience and humility will serve a student well throughout life. Our students emerge from school able to empathise with people, to understand the nuances of social interaction, to stretch beyond what’s considered normal in the pursuit of a goal and to approach challenges with courage.
ACC combines traditional values of good manners, discipline and respect with modern technology, academic improvement and faith development. We inspire every student to strive for their personal best - inside the classroom and beyond.See our Student Attributes
What does it mean to be a Christian school?
For us, a Christian school is defined by teaching and interacting in a gospel-centred way. The school community pulses to the rhythm of grace, truth and mercy. The lessons taught in our classrooms—which encourage critical thinking, curiosity and reflection—are built on a solid Christian foundation.
As a Christian school, we educate young people who act compassionately and graciously yet think deeply and biblically. The school’s purpose is to transform young people academically, emotionally and spiritually for lives of significance and service.
A great value education for parents who want more for their children
For the parent who wants more, ACC offers a great education for less. We are mindful of the impact of a school education on a family’s budget and so we aim to be financially efficient.
Australian Christian College is a not-for-profit organisation with any extra revenue generated invested back into the school. To maximise affordability we provide multi-sibling discounts and payment plans in addition to our already low fees.
