Our Vision is to seek to be a leading provider of quality Christian education within our nation where:

  • Every student develops a personal faith in Jesus Christ and is empowered to live with purpose, integrity and joy.
  • Every student achieves their God-given potential and is well equipped to make a significant contribution to society.
  • Every student benefits from innovative and effective learning experiences taught by skilled and dedicated teachers.
  • Every student enjoys a safe and secure learning environment wherein they feel connected and affirmed.
  • Every student contributes to a culture of respect, dignity, care and concern for others.
  • Every student has access to excellent learning resources and is taught in the best learning facilities we can provide.

St Philip’s Christian College will continue to provide quality education in a caring, secure and challenging learning environment based on Christian beliefs, values and practice.


  • Christ First: we want to honour Christ in all things
  • Serve One Another: we want to appreciate the unique God-given potential of each person
  • Strive for Excellence: we want to aim to do our best all the time
  • Do what is right: we want to always act in a Christian manner
  • Build Community: we want everyone to feel they belong

As a non-denominational Christian college, St Philip’s is committed to academic and moral excellence, and involves learning about, acquiring and practising Christian values. Students are encouraged to form a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that by doing this, students will develop personal confidence, resilience and a clear purpose for their lives.
