Established in 1988, Southern Cross is a small, co-educational,
local church-based school catering for students from kindergarten to Year 12,
set on 0.8 hectares with plenty of shade and grassed playing areas. The school
uses a modified Accelerated Christian Education curriculum that emphasises individualised,
programmed learning within a Christian context. The goal of the school is to
provide an education that is truly Christian in order to assist parents in the
discipling of their children in the ways of God and His Word, and to produce
graduates that desire to serve Him with their whole heart.

Facilities: Library, craft room, workshop, computer room, school
hall. Facilities are supplemented by access to nearby sporting fields, a
swimming pool and a community library.

Electives Years 7 to 10: The core curriculum is supplemented by
Biblical Studies, Home Science, Music, French, Spanish, Computing Studies, and

Electives Years 11 and 12: HSC matriculation is not offered.
Southern Cross provides its own school-based certificate and students can successfully
gain admission to university through the internationally recognised SAT exams.
This includes the study of Science, Mathematics and English. School-based
electives include Old and New Testament, Music, Computer Science, Life of
Christ, Home Economics, 3-Unit Mathematics and Science, and Design and

Sport: A school-based sports program is complemented by annual
athletics and swimming carnivals with similar schools.

Extracurricular activities: End-of-year drama productions, school
concert, inter-Christian school state-based annual convention in which high
school students can compete in over 100 events during the week.

Welfare and personal development: Pastoral care focuses on the
application of Christian principles to students’ lives and involves counselling
from staff and a firm, but fair, discipline policy. Work experience is arranged
for Years 10 to 12. Annual mission trips to outback communities are optional
