About Us

Brisbane Christian College Vision

Brisbane Christian College, as a Ministry of Life Church Brisbane, is the preferred place of learning. Our community empowers students to live Christ-focused lives. We aspire for excellence and equip our members to achieve their maximum potential.

College Mission

Brisbane Christian College provides quality, holistic education that is both Christ-centred and innovative; encouraging confident, creative, life-long learners. Our community equips its members to become resourceful servant leaders who live with dignity and care for others to the glory of God.

College Values

The five values of Brisbane Christian College:

Honour Jesus Christ | Empower others | Aspire to excellence | Respect others and self | Develop dynamic relationships

Excellence – the quality of being outstanding

Excellence is a state of mind, an attitude, a decision that we will endeavour to reach new heights and dream greater dreams. It is a journey that is never reached without perseverance, sacrifice and reflection. At Brisbane Christian College, it is our passion to inspire and equip so that you may achieve.

Excellence is never boring. It will always stretch and challenge us. What will be your legacy at the end of this year? How will you make our College a richer and more dynamic community? Your responsibility is to be a role model of excellence: nothing more, nothing less for the Lord’s glory.

Mr Sean G Morrison, College Principal

A short history

Brisbane Christian College (formerly Southside Christian College) began on 14 April 1985 with sixteen students across several Primary School year levels. It grew steadily into the Pre-Prep to Year 12 College we now enjoy over three campuses.

Pre-Prep Centre – 28 Rookwood Avenue, Coopers Plains

The Pre-Prep Centre opened in March 2010 to meet the local need for an educational play-based program along with high-tech facilities and a colourful outdoor play area.

Primary School Campus – 109 Golda Avenue, Salisbury

The College originally started on this site in what is now known as the Church Basement. Today Golda Avenue is our Primary School Campus for students from Prep to Year 5 across three streams.

Middle and Secondary School Campus – 63 Fairlie Terrace, Salisbury

In 2016 Brisbane Christian College opened the Middle and Secondary Campus on Fairlie Terrace after the successful purchase of the former Nyanda State High School campus. Years 6-12 students enjoy this bushland campus that is conveniently located just a few minutes from our Primary School Campus and Pre-Prep Centre.
