Founded in 1982 (primary) and 1991, (secondary), the purpose of the college is to provide a Christian educational community as a centre of teaching and learning excellence founded on Biblically based beliefs, values
The facilities include the availability of well-equipped classrooms, multiple computer labs, science labs, art, music, design and technology workshops, a food technology and hospitality room, a recently built state-of-the-art-library and a large indoor gymnasium/multipurpose building.

Prep: It is not a Preschool; it is an extension of the existing school program. Belmont offers an investigative play-based curriculum that will prepare your child for Kindergarten. It is a carefully planned environment that is both stimulating and exciting. The children are immersed in a literacy- and numeracy-rich setting, which will offer experiences in the development of social, emotional, cognitive, physical, pre-writing, pre-reading and pre-number skills. The carefully planned program is both stimulating and exciting.
JuniorSchool: (Kindergarten to Year 5) The educational program is based on the NSW syllabus. As far as the content of the syllabus is concerned, students follow a similar program to all other schools. The difference at BCC lies in their approach. All that is taught in the JuniorSchool is taught from a Biblical foundation and all staff are Christians, so their personal faith in Jesus Christ is reflected in the way they teach and the attitudes and values that they communicate.
Middle School: (Years 6 to 8) In Middle School they value the opportunity to partner with children as they make the transition into young adolescence. Given the unique and demanding changes that happen at this age and stage of their lives, they recognise that there is a need for strong relationships and a secure sense of place and belonging. The purpose-built Middle School building helps to facilitate the relational model that is embraced. Large, multifunction classrooms, withdrawal areas, integration of technology, specialist areas and an inter-connectedness between classrooms encourages a creative, flexible approach and a physical connection between classes that helps enhance learning.
SeniorSchool: (Years 9 to 12) SeniorSchool offers an outstanding program of academic, vocational, sporting, cultural and social experiences. In addition, the school intentionally integrate into all facets of college life distinct opportunities for developing an understanding of a Christian world-view and for spiritual growth.
