Emerald Christian College is a co-educational independent college, offering Daycare and Kindy to Year 12. As of January 2019 we have 270 students enrolled. The College is a member of Independent Schools of Queensland (ISQ) and Associated Christian Schools.
It is the intention of the College to work in partnership with families by supporting them and reinforcing Biblical values, morals, discipline and standards of conduct. College staff are committed to providing individual attention and personal care to ensure all children have the maximum opportunity to achieve their fullest potential. It is our firm belief that students attending Emerald Christian College will experience not only academic success, but also spiritual, social, mental and physical blessing.

Hello to future ECC families.
My name is Graeme and I have been the Principal here since 2011. Christian schooling is our passion and here in Emerald we are one of over forty such schools just in Queensland, and many more around Australia. We are part of ISQ (Independant Schools Queensland) and ACS (Associated Christian Schools) to ensure we are up to date and in Christian fellowship with other like minded schools.
This school is set up for you. It is run by local Christian business men and women who started the school in 2001 with the goal of providing a high quality, holistic school that took education and personal development seriously. We base our school on the teachings of Jesus Christ which we believe is evident in all we do and say. We are a modern school in both the facilities we provide and the evidence-based approach to our curriculum delivery. Our teachers and support staff come from around the world and are long term stayers.
We value each student with entry and regular testing, a high quality Enhanced Learning Unit and many Gifted and Talented programs in the classroom and in our Co-curricular offerings. We may be 900km from the Southeast corner but we are determined that our families miss out on nothing!
As an independent school we charge fees to ensure that our students have the best of everything. There are easier ways to get an education in Emerald, but our students are everything to us, and in particular their success once schooling is done, in a world where both good and bad opportunities will face each of our children.
Come along and meet with us to see all we can do together.
Graeme Johnston Dip. Teach., B. Ed., M.A.C.E.
