    Preparation For Life

    Senior School is where your child is encouraged and supported to take on more responsibility for their learning, whilst cultivating good character and a heart that not only serves Christ, but also desires to serve others.

    There is an emphasis on critical thinking and students being actively engaged in the education process.

    Broad Opportunities

    We believe that each child is unique and has their own destiny in God.

    To help students shape themselves for the future, we provide a range of learning opportunities such as:

    collaborative learning, academic competitions, leadership programs, sporting events, camps, performing arts, and extracurricular activities.

Service is integral to Pacific Valley's Christian values and ethics, benefiting students' personal development.

Pastoral Educators

Our teachers are pastoral as well as being educators. They know the strengths of each student and help them to identify their God-given gifting. They are there to assist each student in making good choices about their pathways towards Year 12, and beyond.

Learning Online

To give our students greater choice of courses and a more flexible learning environment, we offer subjects through our partner school – Pacific Online (Pacific Coast Christian School distance education provider). This enables our students to be nurtured in a small school with access to all courses they may wish to study.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you teach Agriculture at the School?

Yes we do and our campus includes a dedicated space for gardens and poultry. We are also connected to local farmers who provide our students with a real-world perspective of agriculture.

Do you teach specialised subjects?

Yes. Complementing our Senior School faculties is Pacific Online which provides 'live' and 'on demand' tuition on a growing range of subjects. Students can access these teacher-led lessons onsite in our dedicated Pacific Online Hub or outside School hours. Pacific Online is ideal for students requiring certain subjects for their HSC in order to prepare for specific university courses or career paths.
