Choosing a school is a big deal. It is a decision that will begin a relationship for many years to come. At Bayside Christian College, we want this relationship to start and remain strong and healthy, because we know that partnership between parents and school is the key to helping young people learn, grow and thrive.   

It is important to know from the outset that Bayside Christian College is not your average school. Although there are many characteristics that differentiate us from other schools, the main difference is that we are a Christian learning community.

Bayside has proudly been providing Christian education for 40 years, supporting parents to orient the heads, hearts and hands of their children to Christ and His Word in a rich, supportive but challenging academic environment.

Our website will provide you with a range of information about Bayside, but it will not give you the experience of what it is like to be at the College. There is something very special about experiencing students laugh, play and learn.

If you would like to learn more about our College community, I would like to invite you to visit Bayside and chat with our team to see for yourself how we seek to nurture each of our students.

In the meantime, welcome to Bayside and I hope you find the website helpful as you seek to find a school for your family.   

Mr Andrew Manning — Principal

History & Purposes

Building The Vision

In 1980, a group of pioneering Christian families started an Association with the vision of establishing a Christian school in Frankston to educate their children in a formal environment supportive of their own Christian beliefs. With the help of God, the original families realised their dream in 1982, opening Frankston Christian School with an initial enrolment of 39 students.

The School Moved To Its Current Site Two Years Later...

And is now transforming an adjacent parcel of land into our new Secondary campus.

Bayside Christian College continues to provide an education committed to its founding purposes, helping parents equip their children for effective, God-glorifying lives as Christians in the world by:

Leading students into the service of God and of others as a thankful response to the work of God in Christ

Nurturing in students the development of a Biblical understanding of the world and of life

Establishing an educational environment that is characterised by faith, hope, love, joy, peace and service

Helping students to discover and develop their own God-given abilities and to recognise and respect those of others

Showing students that knowing their strengths and limitations, is part of achieving a realistic, positive self-image

Promoting A Striving For Excellence In Their Lives!
