Adventist Education South Queensland


Our Mission

The Seventh-day Adventist church proudly operates one of the most widespread and accessible independent school systems in the world! Adventist Education is a cornerstone ministry for the church across the world and here in Australia, providing quality education to prepare students not only for this life, but more importantly for eternity.

In South Queensland, we operate two stand-alone primary schools in Bundaberg (Hope Adventist School) and Ipswich (Ipswich Adventist School); and five P-12 Schools in Kallangur (Northpine Christian College), Noosa (Noosa Christian College), Toowoomba (Darling Downs Christian College), Mansfield (Brisbane Adventist College) and Reedy Creek on the Gold Coast (Gold Coast Christian College). We also operate two long-day care Early Learning Centres at Northpine and Brisbane Adventist College, and Kindy programs at six of our seven schools.

Our dedicated team of principals, teaching and support staff is committed to providing a high quality, Christ-centred, non-selective education to all who pass through our classrooms. On this page you will find details in relation to a range of exciting initiatives and services offered at each of our schools, as well as information about our well-appointed facilities and educational philosophy.

We understand the significant responsibility entrusted to us to shape the minds and souls of the young people in our care and welcome you to discover more about our schools, where our teachers engage daily in the important work of teaching, challenging and transforming the leaders and citizens of tomorrow.
