Who We Are
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.
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.
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.
Faith-based Christian School
Northside Christian College community is enriched by students from more than 100 churches of various denominations. These include:
- Australian Christian Churches (formerly AOG)
- Wesleyan Methodist
- Uniting Church of Australia
- Reformed Churches
The style of worship at the College is contemporary. As far as possible, students are the musicians, singers and leaders of worship and chapels.
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.
