    Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Carlisle is a learning community committed to providing high-quality Christian education designed to meet students' needs who are navigating their way through the 21st Century.

    To do their best in anything, a child needs to feel secure and valued. They need to know that they can achieve by putting in their best effort and feeling safe to try. Children do best in an environment that meets their needs, encourages, and celebrates their successes.

    Ridicule and bullying can destroy that willingness to try, to 'have a go,' which often lies at the base of success and genius. Such negative attitudes certainly have no place in our school. Carlisle Adventist Christian College is a place where we encourage and foster respect, cooperative learning, and excellence.

    Education is more than the experience at school. Before each child lies a future rich in challenges and opportunities but also dangers and deceptions. Education should prepare a child to recognize and evaluate things to embrace the one and reject the other.

    Education certainly must equip each child with knowledge and skills. These are the foundation on which they can continue to build and the tools for accessing what they need from a world where knowledge is continually progressing and expanding. But education must do more than this. It must teach them to be discerning, evaluate that they encounter, and make judgments about worth and value. The ability to think for oneself and firm values to guide that thinking are among the most valuable assets an education can provide.

    School teaching programs include teaching thinking skills and ample opportunities for students to practice higher-level thinking and make judgments. This does not, however, come at the expense of necessary skills in literacy and numeracy. Sufficient time is set aside to ensure the thorough development of these skills. There is an on-going, college-wide evaluation of student development to ensure that any difficulties are identified and dealt with as soon as possible.

    Carlisle Adventist Christian College aims to promote a redemptive relationship between each student and Jesus Christ as an integrated part of their academic, social, and physical development. Our Mission

    • Encourage students to love and follow Jesus
    • Promote an environment of respect and acceptance
    • Empower students to do their very best

    At Carlisle Adventist Christian College, we have a set of values for students known as THE CARLISLE WAY. There are three certificates presented at the weekly assembly to students who have demonstrated these values. The students who are awarded these certificates also receive a Tuckshop voucher.
