St Philip’s Christian College Port Stephens was established in 1995. It is located in the heart of the beautiful Tomaree Peninsula. The College is surrounded by pristine beaches and the breathtaking natural beauty of Port Stephens – a perfect setting for a memorable educational experience.

Selecting the right school for your child is a major decision for every parent. This website is designed to introduce you to our Port Stephens campus and the unique environment it provides for nurturing the development of young people.

The founders of St Philip’s Christian College passionately believed in the need for an independent school that educated the whole child – mind, body and spirit. This website will outline the ways our Port Stephens campus actively pursues this vision and apply a threefold approach to education in the various departments of the College.

I hope you enjoy your time discovering our website and I invite you to further explore the rich array of Christian foundations, culture, programs, facilities and staff we have to offer.


Yours in Christ,
Tim Petterson
