Established in 1978, Summerland Christian College is an independent school situated in the scenic hills overlooking Goonellabah and Lismore. As a College, we are committed to providing a supportive Christian environment from Pre-Kindy to Year 12, giving every child ‘a hope and a future’. We are the only school your child needs, building academic excellence within them throughout their schooling, and partnering with you, as parents, to seek your child’s unique pathway for life.
Here at Summerland, we believe that students thrive best in a supportive Christian environment. That is why we seek to provide a caring, faith-inspired setting built on God’s Love. Our Christian ministry programs include pastoral care initiatives, weekly praise, worship, daily devotions, Christian faith-filled teachers, and several mission enterprises. Undergirded by a Christian worldview and biblical values, we see students graduate from our College confident in whom they are and equip to be an asset to their community and future employers.
Here at Summerland, we believe God has created every child with a unique set of gifts and distinctive potential. As a result, we are committed to discovering a unique pathway for each student, supporting them with a carefully designed curriculum and personalized goals. This individualized approach allows teachers to tailor the learning and sets students up with strategies to accomplish their lifelong goals.
Summerland is a school with proven academic success. We nurture and build academic excellence in our students from the very beginning, using evidence and research-based teaching principles to help them reach and exceed their academic potential.
We build our students’ digital literacy through their schooling, producing competitive 21st-century graduates. Through vital educational programs such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) and EDGE Mathematics, and with dedicated teachers who draw on current data and use innovative approaches to learning, we can help students achieve outstanding academic results.
