Principal's Welcome

A message from our Principal

I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to South Coast Baptist College.

We are a healthy, thriving co-educational Christian community within a College, catering to students from Childcare to Year 12. My SCBC experience began in 2010 when I had the privilege of starting as Principal. Since then, the College has enjoyed strong academic achievements and an engaging, varied curriculum.

Our co-curricular activities and programs reinforce our desire to develop the whole child. Additionally, the College’s current 5 stage, $45 million redevelopment means our facilities offer the newest education methods as we continually invest in the future.

SCBC’s most noticeable strength is its community — each student is connected and valued.

There is a thriving sense of energy at SCBC; people notice it when they step on to the College grounds. An enormous part of that is our staff. Each makes a conscious effort to model healthy, authentic, Christ-centred relationships with each other, students, and student families.

Our teachers are committed to delivering quality education in dynamic, engaging learning environments. They each have a genuine Christian faith and embody compassion and service in the school and wider community.

Our mission statement — Rigorous Minds, Compassionate Hearts — speaks to our dedication in shaping character as we normalise striving for excellence in life, at school and beyond. We want to assist students to reach their first-choice University, TAFE or apprenticeship aspirations when they graduate. The earlier that process starts, the better.

So, if you're seeking every opportunity to explore and hone your child’s unique gifts, chances are, SCBC is a good fit for your family.

I invite you to visit us on campus. Please contact the office on 9540 4400 or email, and we would be delighted to arrange a time for you.
