Firm Foundations

Our heritage dates back to 1985 when the College held its first academic year.

We opened our doors under the original name of Maranatha Christian College. This ambitious initiative got off the ground through the leadership and support of Rockingham Baptist Church. The original vision was to provide Christ-centered education to families in the Rockingham region. This still forms the foundation of our vision and College ethos today.

SCBC is aligned with the Baptist denomination, which believes in one true God: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The teachings of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments form the doctrinal base. Families do not need to have a Christian faith to attend the College, but must be supportive and respectful of the school's Christian ethos.

In 2012, the College was rebranded to reflect its growth, and its current name launched. This steady growth has meant the College has become better resourced and positioned to invest in state-of-the-art technology, facilities and programs. A part of this is the $45 million redevelopment (rolled out over 15 years), which is underway now.

Our highly successful Football Program is just one example of new initiatives the College has invested in. The Program has quickly earned a stellar reputation and become the first-choice of its kind.

Graduates are encouraged to stay connected to the College and the friends they have made while studying here. More than 30 years' after opening our classrooms, the College is now at an exciting stage where we're seeing our graduates send their own children through the school. We're honoured that these past students trust us to provide the same positive school experience they fondly remember.
