Why Christian Schooling?
Students are able to flourish when they enter a Christian School environment.
They are accepted for who they are, and treated with respect by both staff and other students. Everyone is part of God?s family, regardless of ability or background.
Sattler Christian College is not a religious school tied to particular traditions. We endeavour to continually renew our efforts and perspectives from a Christian world view, where God?s word is our simple foundation.
Our logo and motto are described in Isaiah 4:31, which states: ?But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength, they will be strong like eagles soaring upwards on wings; they will walk and run without getting tired.? (C.E.V.)
To be an innovative Christian School
? equipping children for life
