The substantial educational focus at Riverside Christian College is partnered with genuine care and concern for our students. Student care is treated with diligence and enthusiasm, where every student is seen as a unique, valued individual. Strategies are in place to ensure that no one is missed. From Prep to Year 12, every grade has a team of dedicated staff focused on student care, with both a Pastoral Care teacher and Chaplain available to all students.
We believe that caring for students is a demonstration of God’s love. As we nurture and support students, they are encouraged to live a life where they care for and serve each other. Our vision is for students to love life and, in doing so, gain a deep hope that will transform their world.
There are many opportunities for students in every grade to impact their world. Student-led initiatives raise support and awareness of global issues, while national and international mission trips provide students in Senior Years with opportunities to make a difference first-hand.
