Who We Are


We work to intentionally raise up future leaders. Located in North Brisbane, Northside Christian College is a leader in Christian education, preparing students who will be transformational in their spheres of influence.


We are daily committed to our mission, which is: ‘To make disciples of Jesus Christ, educated and equipped for any future.’


To illustrate the ‘Spirit of Northside,' we look to the Christian values that influence our behaviours and form the College culture.


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. Faith is a way of life that impacts behaviour.


Using National curriculum with a Christian worldview, students are provided with varied opportunities through classroom, co-curricular and pastoral care programs that facilitate and inspire learning now and encourage a desire to continue learning in the future.


Each member of the community is called upon to do their best in all circumstances and to maximise their God-given talents. Our approach to teaching, learning and relationships is characterised by a spirit of excellence.


We value the development of strong character through faith, and value the qualities of honesty, courage, resilience, humility, respect and responsibility.


We are a caring, learning, encouraging, faith-based community focused around students, staff and parents, and extending to grandparents, sister schools and other members of the wider community.

College Principal, Northside Christian College

Mr. Leighton Kuss

Mr Leighton Kuss, Principal of Northside Christian CollegeFor over thirty years, Northside Christian College has nurtured young lives, making disciples of Jesus Christ, educated and equipped for any future. It is a privilege and joy to witness children grow, learn and achieve their full potential in God.

Northside is different.

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.


Northside Christian College was established in 1985 by Northside Christian Church (now Nexus Church) with the goal to provide education that would be Christ-centred, reflecting a Biblical morality, in conjunction with an academic emphasis. Read reflections from the founding Pastor, John Lewis.
