Why Christian Schooling?

This is a great question to ask when looking at enrolling in a Christian school.

A Christian school is not just a private school or indeed, a religious school. At a Christian school like Green Point Christian College all staff are dedicated and committed Christians.

A Christian school such as ours endeavours to continue the teaching given at home, through to the school environment. Often there is conflict within a child who is taught one thing at home and another thing at school. We want to offer parents a continuation of the good, healthy teaching they are giving their children in their own home. Children who come to the College without a strong faith in God are encouraged to seek and discover faith in Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

The message of the Bible is taught and communicated through every subject and activity offered at the College. Devotion times are held each morning and a Church service is held once per week. Students have the opportunity to be part of a living, dynamic Christian community at school as well as at home and church. Their faith is encouraged not criticised and healthy relationships are promoted throughout their school life.

A quote from one of our past Chairmen is worth noting: “It is very comforting to meet a few of our former students and observe a very different attitude to life, they are very positive and a contrast to the large number of young people who generally make the news.”

The Bible says, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
