Our College - Private Education | Flinders Christian Community College

Flinders Christian Community College is an independent, coeducational, interdenominational Christian School (with an open and inclusive enrolment policy, we do accept students from a Christian faith and a non-Christian faith background) for students in Kinder to Year 12, with beautiful campuses located in Carrum Downs, Mt Martha and Tyabb.

We encourage, challenge and inspire each student to learn, develop in character, understand the world in which they live and develop. As a Christian School, we seek to work with parents and guardians to develop principled, thoughtful and analytical young people prepared to take a purposeful place in the community. Flinders is designed and operated to achieve long term results related to student understanding, dispositions for lifelong learning and service in the Kingdom of God.

At Flinders, we value love, faith, integrity, humility, grace, excellence and perseverance. Respect for self and others; life-long learning; a safe and nurturing environment; growth and transformation; a strong partnership with staff, students, families and community. Flinders has established a positive school culture, which seeks to value all by displaying love, grace, integrity, humility and forgiveness.

Flinders’ inclusive educational philosophy underpins the curricular and extra-curricular programs from three-year old Kinder to Year 12. Students have opportunities to engage in activities such as drama, music, sport, debating and public speaking, community service and mission programs. We plan, implement and evaluate a dynamic and responsive curriculum that is developmentally challenging and engaging.

As a College dedicated in preparing students for the 21st century, we utilise digital technologies to enable each learner to extend their capacity intellectually, emotionally, socially, morally and spiritually. The curriculum at each campus varies slightly depending on local needs and context. The curriculum includes English, Mathematics, Sciences, History, Geography, the Arts, Technologies, Music, Drama, Health, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, and Bible Studies. Camps are an important part of the curriculum, and there is a range of co-curricular activities.

The Chapel and Devotional program are a central part of the Christian curriculum in its goal to develop the whole person, body, mind and spirit. There are many student leadership opportunities including House competitions, Arts, Community engagement and Chapel services at each campus.

We acknowledge the Bunurong People as the traditional custodians of this land on which our College Campuses are built. As we continue to learn to live together on these ancestral lands, we acknowledge and pay our respects to their elders, past and present. We pray that God will unite us all in the knowledge of His Son, in whom all things were created.
