Your child will do better here
Imagine opening your child’s school report in celebration — delighted by their remarkable academic improvement and personal growth. Past school experiences fade away and the future seems filled with unlimited possibility. That’s what happens at Australian Christian College, where our dedicated teachers coach students to achieve their personal bests in an environment where measurable improvement is expected and celebrated.
This improvement is made possible by ACC’s unique educational approach, which includes partnering with parents, setting academic goals, closely monitoring academic progress, rewarding personal bests and fostering a growth mindset. Our teachers coach, support and encourage all students to achieve their individual goals.
ACC students are continually challenged and unconditionally loved. Our students have teachers who notice them, ask about their interests, listen to them, laugh with them and believe in them. ACC students are well known, well loved and well taught by teachers who want the very best for them.STUDENT IMPROVEMENT SHOWCASE
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.
Young people should 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.
As a Christian school, we also want graduates to leave with a vibrant faith in Jesus, who take responsibility for their choices and who possess the ability to navigate an uncertain future.SEE OUR STUDENT ATTRIBUTES
We're creating a truly authentic Christian Learning Community
A learning community is comprised of people, including teachers.
Great teachers can teach in a tent, yet many schools invest heavily in facilities.
At ACC, we believe in featuring our teachers not our buildings.
Our teachers are dedicated, hopeful, loving, fun, professional, humble, approachable and generally all-out fabulous.
This is a place where young people thrive
Young people thrive when they are well known, well loved and well taught.
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 and are instrumental to improving student learning outcomes.
We want our students to know how uniquely gifted they are, how to manage their thoughts and feelings, and what they can do with their 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.WATCH OUR GRADUATES
