Parent Testimonials




What has our school done for your child?


  • Because our daughter has special needs, she requires extra attention. Since enrolling at Summerland, her reading and writing skills have taken off! We are impressed with the amount of time the teachers devote to our child.

  • "The teacher doesn't scream at the kids in class", my son Ethan said to me after the second day of starting here in Year 3. He was so amazed.

    The teaching staff have returned my son to me. He is once again a happy, studious and loving student. He looks forward to coming to school again after a very difficult time in a public school.

  • Summerland Christian College has helped both my children to become self-confident, happier and responsible in their characters. They have developed good Christian morals and have a great sense of "community spirit" and love helping other people. I have no doubt that they have been given a great foundation to succeed in whatever they do in life.

  • What is so good about our school?


  • There is a tricky balance between discipline and love when teaching teenagers.
    Summerland - you've nailed it!
    Frances Barr

  • Not only is the school set in beautiful surroundings and has amazing facilities, such as the Library, the most incredible asset of this school is its staff. The teachers are kind and compassionate and show a real and genuine interest in the kids that goes above and beyond what would be considered to be a standard teacher/child school relationship.
    Allison Laker

  • I feel my children have had a good all-round education. They have had a chance to excel in the areas they are good at. They have enjoyed sports, crafts, excursions and electives. I have appreciated the fact that they have done Pastor's Class in Primary school and Biblical Studies in High School. I pray that Christian schools of this calibre will be around for my grandchildren.
    Fiona Wagner

  • The Christian morals and values of the school; the academic level of the students; the support from teachers; how the school works with the family as well as the child - this is what's so good about the school.
    Jamie Maggs

  • The size of the school was of great benefit for my children – this allows the teachers to know all of the children on an individual basis. The school allows my children to develop respect and care for others no matter what your background.
    Chris and Heidi Heinritz

  • We love the Christian values of the teachers. We love the school's high standards. We love the safe environment our children have to express who God made them to be.
    Daniel and Tracey Byrne


  • Why did you enrol your child at our school?


  • We enrolled our son at this school after 12 months of constant bullying at his public school. The best asset of this school is the teaching staff; they do actually care about their students, and develop and bring out the best in each child, and the child responds by wanting to learn and come to school.
    Allison Laker

  • As a former student, it seemed only natural for our children to also attend the school. The school offers excellent quality education at an affordable price in a caring environment.
    Nathan Willis

  • Deciding to enroll my son into SCC was an easy choice. My husband is a REAL(Religious Education) teacher and I am a casual teacher, so we know it is the best school in the area. Also, I was once a student at SCC so I know first hand the love, support and individual attention you receive when attending SCC.
    Emily Joosse

  • I enrolled the girls in Summerland because I went to an all mixed Christian school from Year 5 to Year 8. I learnt so much about everything, from school work... to my Christian values. I wanted that for my girls, too. And they are receiving it.
    Thanks again.
    Mandy Watt

  • I enrolled my sons in Summerland to surround them with good role models who are self-disciplined and nurturing, and who have high quality characters.
    Katie Thompson

  • Moving countries is always a big step to take. Putting our child into SCC was the best decision we could have made. SCC provided the ideal secure, friendly, academic and Christian environment in which he could prosper.
    Gert & Estelle Becker

  • I chose SCC because I wanted my child to experience a Christ-centered learning environment and to see Christ's love in action. SCC has provided this rare opportunity.
    Anita White

    Rebekka Battista

  • I wanted a school that provided strong Christian values. Summerland Christian College provides this as well as a safe, family atmosphere with caring, approachable teachers who will help any way they can to ensure the potential in every student is reached. They have the very latest equipment and learning facilities to achieve this.
    Amanda Baker
