We are passionate about being a learning community where every student can shine - spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially. We seek to educate the whole person. That is, we focus on the head, the hands and the heart. In this way, we encourage students to have strong minds, develop practical skills and cultivate wholesome, Christian values.

At Chinchilla Christian College, we believe God has a special plan and purpose for every child and that each one can achieve success. Offering Australian Curriculum taught from a Biblical, Christian worldview, the College caters for a wide range of student learning needs. Our educational program is enriched with a wide range of co-curricular activities that facilitate the further development of individual student strengths and abilities. Chinchilla Christian College is big enough to provide great opportunities, yet small enough to provide individual care and attention. Our distinctive at Chinchilla Christian College is the belief that we are ‘family’. When a new student joins us, whether this be in Prep or at any other stage along their schooling journey, they become a lifelong member of the CCC family. There are clear benefits of being a member of a healthy, loving family. These include: acceptance, a sense of belonging, encouragement and support. We want each and every student here at CCC to experience these benefits both during their schooling and after they have graduated.


It is an exciting time for Chinchilla Christian College. The College has experienced significant growth in recent years - 22% in 2017 and 25% in 2018. To cater for this significant growth, Chinchilla Christian College has recently purchased two neighbouring properties. It is also commencing a construction program to provide additional specialist and general classroom facilities. Over the next 12 months a science lab, visual arts studio, Secondary amenities, food technology, digital technology and industrial facilities will be constructed. Additional facilities will follow in line with the College’s Master Plan.

It does not matter when a student departs from the College, we will always consider them to be part our school’s family and will be keen to hear how they are going. As students graduate and move on to the next season of their lives, we would like to be updated about how their study or work is progressing and have them know they can get in touch with the College whenever they need any kind of support from us. As human beings, our greatest need is to be loved. During each student’s time at CCC, our hope and prayer is that they will come to know more about God’s unconditional love for them and experience the love of their school family.
