God's Provision and Guidance

Formerly Thornlie Christian College, the College became known as Providence Christian College in 2020. The word Providence means “God’s provision and guidance.” The name perfectly complements the College’s purpose to provide education under the Lordship of Christ and therefore, more accurately defines who we are and what we stand for.

For 40 years, Providence Christian College has been partnering with families to help shape the lives of students. We have developed into a thriving college community where every child can strive for excellence in a safe and nurturing environment. The Christian faith is embedded in all that we do. Students from many backgrounds, faiths and countries proudly choose to call Providence Christian College their home away from home.

A school has a profound impact on the academic, physical, social, spiritual and cultural growth of every child. That is why our most fundamental purpose is to partner with parents to nurture children into adulthood with a strong set of values and beliefs that will live with them as they make a meaningful impact on their world. Through positive and purposeful relationships with students and their families, we are able to understand each child as an individual and tailor an education pathway that will help them achieve their goals and fulfil their God-given calling.
