A story worth telling

 Belmont Christian College is located on the narrow scenic isthmus that lies between Lake Macquarie and the Pacific Ocean, bordered by 9 Mile Beach. The site is heritage listed and was once the John Darling Colliery. A vision for Christian schooling in the Belmont area was first conceived by members of Belmont Baptist Church and has seen the College grow from humble beginnings with an enrolment of just 12 students in 1982.

The John Darling Colliery

By 1992 the student enrolment had out-grown the facilities at the church and the school moved to its current site, the old John Darling Colliery, which was owned by BHP. 1996 was a significant year, with continuing strong growth. It saw the first Year 12 cohort do their Higher School Certificate, and the school change its name to Belmont Christian College (BCC).

Faithfully Led

Ms Sharon Sopher is our current Principal, having started at the commencement of 2016 and has had many years of leading Kingdom Education.

Long serving Principal, Mrs Diane Wooldridge, retired after 22 years of faithful service in 2004 with the College having grown significantly in number. 2005 saw the appointment of Mr Michael Budden, who was steadfast in his leadership as Principal for 11 years and retired in 2015.

A Bright Future

The introduction of BCC Beginners, our pre-Kindergarten program, a Community Playgroup (0 – 5 year olds), the building of the Library under the Federal Government BER funding as well as the building of M and K Blocks have been significant events in the history of BCC. The original vision to offer education to the children of Christian families who wanted Biblical principles and Christian values supported in their children has been broadened to give all families the same opportunity.  We are privileged to give our students a strong foundation, enabling them to Grow up into Christ.
