60 Years of Education

Our History

We've come a long way from a single teacher and a church hall to our amazing team of staff in our dual-campus College. However, our purpose to provide quality, Christian education hasn't changed one bit.

Timeline

Our Timeline

1961

In 1961, a one-teacher school began in the hall under the Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church.

1965

In 1965, a two-classroom school was built on two acres behind the church. Until 1968, the Castle Hill church took full responsibility for the school. In that year, four surrounding churches, then called the Hills District, combined to operate the Adventist School.

1970

In 1970, with financial assistance from the Greater Sydney Conference’s “Support our Schools” scheme, the school completed extensions including one extra classroom, offices, toilets and an assembly room. Upgrading of the playground was also carried out at this time.

1978

The school continued to grow, and in 1978, the next stage of the building was completed.

1996

Major Building works commence...

During 1996, a large building project began. This provided the school with a new library, computer room, reception area, offices and staff room first used in 1997.

2006

In 2006 the new Early Learning Centre was opened, and a commitment made to developing a Middle and Senior school.

2010

By 2010, it became obvious that the Castle Hill site was unable to sustain greater growth, and the Middle and Senior schools (Year 5–12) were relocated to the Kellyville campus.

2012

On 25 October 2012, NSW Senator Doug Cameron officially opened the Multi-Purpose Centre, the first permanent building on the Kellyville campus.

2021

Towards the future

The College is now a dual-campus school, with an Early Learning Centre and Junior School located at Castle Hill, and Junior (K–3 in 2021, Year 4 in 2022), Middle & Senior School located at North Kellyville.

The College continues to serve the Hills District community and provides a nurturing environment focused on learning, personal development and opportunities for service.
