College History

Oxley Christian College was founded in 1979 with two key objectives: to achieve the highest academic standards; and to do so within a non-denominational, distinctively Christian environment. Still deeply committed to its founding principles, Oxley is widely recognised both for the excellence of its teaching and for the outstanding academic performance of its Year 12 students, of whom the majority gain entry each year into the university programs of their choice.

At the heart of the Oxley experience are Christian perspectives and values, which underpin all aspects of the College program. Every member of the highly qualified teaching staff is committed to the Christian ethos. Each student is encouraged in the development of a deep and enduring personal faith, accompanied by respect for oneself as a unique creation of God, and by respect and compassion for others.

The College seeks also to identify and nurture the individual student’s talents, which are valued, cherished and encouraged as special, God-given gifts.

Oxley attracts students from diverse cultures and backgrounds – including a number of students from overseas. The College community welcomes all students and families who embrace the College ethos and objectives.
