Toongabbie Christian College is a Kindergarten to Year 12 co-educational day school located in the Western suburbs of Sydney. The College commenced in 1981 as a ministry of Toongabbie Baptist Church. Our purpose is to be a caring Christian community that supports families by providing a quality Christ-centred education which develops the whole person for life and eternity.
The College is a Christ-centred learning community where children and young people are given opportunities to grow in their understanding of what it means to live as a Christian in the 21st Century. We have a reputation as a safe and caring Christian environment where students are encouraged to learn and foster their God-given abilities, working with committed Christian staff. Toongabbie Christian College offers enrolment to students from a wide range of cultural and denominational backgrounds. Both staff and families are required to provide a reference from the pastor of the Christian church they currently attend. The College seeks to work in partnership with parents/carers for the Christian education of their children.
Toongabbie Christian College offers the NESA curriculum, taught from a Biblical Worldview. There is the opportunity for students to study a wide range of subjects to Extension levels at the HSC. The College is divided into a Primary School and Secondary School with a Deputy Principal overseeing each Department. In the Primary School, a Head of Junior Primary (K-2) and a Head of Senior Primary (3-6) is responsible for the pastoral care and oversight of students. In the Secondary School, a Director of Students (7-9) and a Director of Students (10-12) oversees the pastoral care of Stages 4, 5 and 6 students. The College has three classes per year in Primary and is growing into four classes per year in Secondary. To assist with the wide range of student abilities, there are programs for Gifted & Talented, Acceleration, Educational Support and EALD students.
