LETTER FROM THE
Welcome to Discovery Christian College, Agnes Water’s only Prep – Year 12 learning community.
Established in 2015, as a response to the growing need for a high school in Agnes Water, the College has grown into a vibrant Prep – Year 12 learning community. Discovery Christian College is committed to partnering with families in the education of students through an intentionally designed, supportive and challenging environment where every student can both realise and fulfil their potential.
Built on the foundations of character, community and excellence, Discovery Christian College seeks to grow students through a broad suite of opportunities that support holistic development across academics, sport and cultural pursuits. Our programs are delivered by passionate, dedicated staff who seek to understand the unique characteristics of our students and challenge them to grow in a nurturing and caring environment.
Although we are young in our development as a learning community, we know that students will graduate from Discovery Christian College as confident and resilient young adults, ready to influence and shape the world around them. We look forward to partnering with you in your child’s educational journey.
Discovery Christian College opened its doors on 2nd February 2015.
The big vision of Discovery is to offer a rigorous academic program and provide vocational pathways for every student leading to opportunities to follow their passion.
At DCC the development of character is paramount. We place Christian values such as respect, care, love and patience at the centre of our community and provide opportunities for students to develop into whole adults.
Working with families, we will help your child to develop a respect for others, a spirit of excellence and positive work habits to help them become the leaders for the future.
For many years, the town of Agnes Water had no local secondary school and high school students had to make the long journey every day to schools further afield in Rosedale or Bundaberg.
The establishment of Discovery Christian College changed this trend dramatically with students now having the option to attend a school just minutes from their homes.
We value excellence in all areas of life and support our students to help maximise their abilities and attitudes. Our goal is to speak positively into the lives of our students and to encourage them to strive for high academic standards. We do this by providing a loving structured environment, a well-planned curriculum and effective assessment processes.
Along with academic excellence, we encourage students to love and serve others and give them opportunities to exercise this in their classrooms and in the community. We assist them to develop good communication skills and the ability to solve problems and to work in teams, which are all qualities required for future success.
Can you picture yourself working with small class sizes in great facilities minutes from the beach? How about getting involved with a small coastal community?
