SHCS CompanyA Vision-Driven Community
About the SHCS Company
Southern Highlands Christian School (SHCS) was founded in 1983 by a group of Christian families who wanted a school that became an extension of their home by educating their children and helped to raise them to understand the world through the Christian lens focussing their thinking on ultimate truth – a biblical vision for life.
The school has continued to focus on offering a 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.
SHCS is legally owned by this group of parents and is an incorporated limited liability public company. The SHCS Company is the prime decision making body of the School and elect Board Members who act on behalf of the Company to determine policy and broad direction.
