Southern Highlands Christian School (SHCS) was founded in 1983 by a group of Christian families who wanted to establish a school as an extension of their home by educating their children to understand the world through a Christian lens focussing their thinking on ultimate truth – a biblical vision for life.
The School has continued to focus on offering biblically-shaped, Christ-centred, parent-governed education from Prep to Year 12, and seeks to promote this educational model to the community of the Southern Highlands and beyond.
