You want a Christian school that prepares your child for Life.
In pursuit of excellence in education the mission of Christian Schools Australia is to assist Christian parents by helping equip students to embrace biblical truth, strive for academic excellence, and model Christ-like leadership to influence their homes, churches and communities for Christ.
Serving Christian Schools
Christian Schools Australia (CSA) is a peer group serving the diverse needs of a large network of independent Christian schools. CSA provides professional services, development, direct assistance, information and advice to its members.
We are a voice for Christian schools, advocating for their needs in the national debate.
We maintain positive relationships with government and others and play a leading role in the public policy debate to ensure the voice of Christian schools is heard.
Every student is made in the image of God. Therefore the unique needs of every child are the primary concern of a Christian school. The Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians emphasises the importance of supporting students’ social, emotional, spiritual and physical development.
A Christian School education meets these important objectives.
Importance of Community
Christian Schools Australia is a voice for independent Christian schools at both State and Federal levels. CSA advocates the needs of students, parents and communities in regards to policy, funding and curriculum. CSA maintains positive relationships with governments and other member associations in the public policy debates to ensure the voice of Christian schools is heard.
