For more than 35 years, Northside Christian College has been offering strength and direction for life. Northside is a co-educational, Prep to Year 12 college all on one campus. With a site-imposed limit of 350 students, students feel known and appreciated, not lost in the crowd.

Facilities: The school has high-quality facilities with purpose-designed hubs for specialist areas including a VCE Centre, Music and Drama, Design and Construction (Wood), Food and Textiles, a new Science Centre and computer labs. Wireless connectivity to the internet allows staff and students to work online from laptops or digital devices anywhere on the campus. The college library also houses spaces for student support services, including counselling, ESL and numeracy and literacy programs.

Curriculum: The college offers a broad and engaging curriculum, based on AusVELS, from Reception to Year 12. Small classes and dedicated teachers give students every opportunity for success. Mandarin Chinese is offered from Prep to Year 8 as a core subject and as an elective at Years 9 and 10 with an aim to take students through to VCE. In 2012 the college initiated an iPad Pilot Program. This has now been extended from Year 5 to Year 11. The Electric Car project, the Year of Challenge activities for Year 9, the Bike Education program and the Sustainable Living Project with its community gardens are further examples of the many innovative programs the college offers. The college is proud to be a partner school in the Northern College of Arts and Technology, where students can take VETiS subjects or Pre-apprenticeship training in a wide range of Technical or Performing and Graphic Arts areas. There is a range of co-curriculum programs operating, especially in music including instrumental tuition, band and school production.

Sport: The college has an internal Sport House system and is a member of the Christian Schools Sports Network, competing in interschool competitions in swimming, athletics and cross country, basketball and soccer at both Primary and Secondary levels.

Student welfare programs: Directed by the Student Welfare and Pastoral Care Team, which includes the Student Welfare Officer, students are cared for and nurtured in their personal development.  You Can Do It is used in the Primary School and Mind Matters, Beyond Blue and No Apologies in the Secondary school. Special educational needs are diagnosed and supported through the Strategic Teaching and Extension Program (STEP). ESL teaching is available. English language and cultural integration form a part of this program.
