Christian School Brisbane
Over the thirty-four year history, Northside Christian College has grown into one of the leading private, co-educational, non-denominational Christian schools in north Brisbane, offering Christ-centred education from Prep to Year 12.
The College is well known and respected for its great academic results, commitment to character development, sporting spirit, and passionate community service.
We are God-honouring, Christ-centred, student-esteeming and parent-respecting school.
Northside Christian College is a leader in Christian education in Brisbane, preparing students who will be transformational in their spheres of influence. We work to intentionally raise up future leaders.
We are daily committed to our mission, which is: ‘To make disciples of Jesus Christ, educated and equipped for any future.’
Faith in Christ is seen as the foundation to life. Each student is provided with the opportunity to understand the teaching of the Scriptures and to become a follower of Jesus Christ in both belief and action.
Northside Christian College is acknowledged as a "School identifying substantially above average gain" by Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority.
We value the development of strong character through faith. We foster the qualities of honesty, courage, resilience, humility, respect and responsibility.
We believe that values and lifestyles are more ‘caught than taught’. Our staff are able to role model the Christian life for our students.
College Principal, Northside Christian College
Mr. Leighton Kuss
At the centre of everything we do as a community is a love for Jesus Christ.
He is the reason the College exists, and following him is the unifying force among our staff and families. The College was born out of a desire to create an environment that fosters rich and respectful collaboration between children’s most important influencers: parents, church and school.
Our students thrive—body, soul, and spirit—in an educational setting that caters to a wide variety of interests and needs. Approachable, dedicated staff and a safe, supportive community help children flourish. We equip our students to think well, believe strongly, strive for excellence and practise personal integrity.
We care, most of all, what kind of person each young man and woman becomes.
Character through Christ
Character through Christ is in the DNA of the College. It's built into every level of the College, aspired to by all, from staff and students to community. We partner with parents and churches to foster authentic faith that is characterised by active love and dedication to the teachings of Christ.
Brisbane Christian School
We teach a little by what we say; we teach more by what we do; and we teach most by who we are - our life, disposition, attitude, reactions, godly decorum, and ethos of influence.
The College is not an escape or protection, but a proactive enabling of our students for life and excellence in education. It sets them up with a strong Christian worldview that enables them to respond with a good apologetic to a non-Christian worldview.
Northside Christian College community is enriched by students from more than 100 churches of various denominations. These include:
The style of worship at the College is contemporary. As far as possible, students are the musicians, singers and leaders of worship and chapels.
Northside Christian College was founded in 1985 as a ministry of Nexus Church (formerly Northside Christian Church, Brisbane) in order to provide a high quality education that would partner with and support the values of Christian families.
