College Structure

Private Schools in Melbourne - Oxley College - Christian Schools Melbourne

Mission Statement: Oxley Christian College is a Christian school committed to excellence of teaching and learning through which students develop their unique abilities in a secure yet stimulating environment. Each student is nurtured towards a personal faith in Christ, an understanding of Christian values and a commitment to serve God and His world.”

Oxley Christian College is a coeducational Christian day school with a total enrolment of around 1000 students. The Junior School includes the Early Childhood Centre; Kinderoo (3 Year olds) and Pre-School (4 Year Olds) through to Year 6; the Senior School encompasses Years 7 through 12.  Students in Years 7-9 are part of the ‘Middle Years’, while students in Years 10-12 are part of the ‘Senior Years’.

In offering a complete educational experience – from Pre-School to Year 12, the College fosters a sense of community, security and belonging, where interaction between all age groups is encouraged as an important aspect of social development.

Each student is assigned to one of three competition groups called Houses. Friendly Inter-House competition in various sports fosters the qualities of co-operation and team loyalty, while roles of responsibility at all Year levels – Home Group Captains, Junior and Senior School House Captains, Prefects, and College Captains and Vice-Captains – nurture the development of leadership skills.

In 2008 Oxley became a member of the Eastern Independent Schools Melbourne (EISM) sporting competition.
