Ebenezer Christian College is an initiative of the Ebenezer Foundation and a child safe organisation. We seek to train children to view life from God’s revelation. We accept the Bible as God’s Word and the complete and final revelation of God concerning all matters of faith, truth and practice. As such it forms the foundation upon which the school is built. The ultimate objective of the education program of Ebenezer Christian College is to bring glory to God.
Our school is not a parent-controlled school. Though we value parental input, the direction and values of the school will ultimately be determined by the school board in collaboration with the foundation board.
We view the purpose of education as, firstly, to reveal God and His truth to each student. We believe that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (Proverbs 1:7). Secondly, we see education’s purpose is to provide instruction in the different subjects that children need to learn in order to be able to function as honourable, hard-working citizens in society.
The harmonious blend of Godly counsel and knowledge of various subjects required in our day is our educational objective. We believe that every aspect of our Ebenezer Christian College program, including curriculum development and school policy, must have an integrative relationship to the Word of God.
Ebenezer Christian College is an extension of the home. The School provides a strong Christian education for all students, and is committed to high standards of academic excellence and Christian character. The objective of the School is found in Proverbs 22:6:
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Ebenezer Christian College is open to enrolment for grade levels Kindergarten through Year 10. The curriculum we offer is a combination of ACE (Accelerated Christian Education), which is used by over 1,000 homes and Christian schools in Australia, and more traditional classroom teaching modes. The integration between the two types of learning gives the students a balanced education that caters for their academic, social and spiritual needs.
Primary age students benefit from the foundation that the ACE curriculum provides and allows them to master the fundamentals of the core subjects. This is complemented by practical, fun and reinforcing activities in the classroom with their teacher.
High School is an exciting time for every student, as they discover in greater depth much of God’s creation and their role in this world. Teachers are there to guide the students during this time of decisions and academic achievement.
Our teaching and School staff members are committed to providing an environment that assists in the development of the students academically and spiritually. In order for this to be achieved, it is required that all parents and students agree to abide by the Statement of Faith of Ebenezer Christian College. The Bible principle for this is seen in Amos 3:3: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”
We invite you to consider enrolling your children at Ebenezer Christian College!
