    The Whole Child

    We teach with a Biblical worldview. Our Christian beliefs and values are infused into all learning to give students an understanding of who they are in Christ whilst they are being educated. We deliver a combination of curriculum teaching with extra-curricular activities and character development for a holistic outcome.

Student Development

We believe every child is unique, created in God’s image with their own individual strengths and abilities. Our Christian culture, programs and our dedicated Christian staff allow students to know how much they are loved and valued. Our goal is to help them become their best, to be comfortable being themselves and to pursue their own unique personal pathway in life.

Living With Hope

The Pacific Hope model was initially pioneered in 1979 in Sydney with a model that blended Bible-based instruction, Christian values, and integrated learning. Regardless of the students' diverse challenges and varied intellectual and social abilities, they flourished in this environment. The establishment of Pacific Hope Christian School now reflects the same success and serves the Tweed Head region.
