About Us

A unique learning environment


Situated in a delightful semi-rural setting just 20 minutes from Noosa Heads, Hastings Street and beaches lies Noosa Christian College. The College was established to provide Christian education to the families of the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland. The College commenced operations in January 2003 with a 30 acre site at the western edge of Cooroy, a charming and rapidly growing town located on the Bruce Highway just 30 minutes drive north of the Nambour/Maroochydore region and 35 minutes south of Gympie. The College currently offers Kindergarten to Year 12.

Our Guide

Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you…”

Philippians 4:8 “…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”

Adventist Education

Philosophy Statement

The heart and soul of Adventist Education stems from a worldview regarding the origin, meaning, purpose and destiny of human life, which is drawn from the Bible. This gives Noosa Christian College a special character reflected in the Vision, Mission and Values statements that are so important to its administration, teachers and staff members. Noosa Christian College is a total learning environment, with careful attention paid to an appropriate balance between connecting with God each day, engaging in a wide range of planned curricular activities and time spent in recreation. The College is a community of learning in which a spirit of cooperation, a sense of safety and security, and respect for the diversity of individuals and cultures are valued and nurtured. The ‘Golden Rule’, Jesus injunction to ‘treat others as you like to be treated’ is our preferred basis for social interaction. We seek to foster attitudes and standards of behaviour among our students consistent with an Adventist (Christian) worldview.


Building Pathways to Success

At Noosa Christian College, we are the very essence of a small school with a big heart. We believe that the success of your child is dependent upon the development and nurturing of positive and proactive relationships and partnerships between our staff, yourself and your child. Our College provides students with opportunities to pursue success along a variety of pathways, be they spiritual, academic, physical, artistic, emotional or social.
