College History

Sunshine Coast Christian school
Glasshouse Christian College is a ministry of the Glasshouse Country Baptist Church (GCBC) in Beerwah. The College opened on the 31 January 2000 with 16 children and is now a thriving Sunshine Coast Christian school with approximately 1075 students.

GCBC church elders had been praying for some time to establish a Sunshine Coast Christian school but didn’t have the land. A retired missionary from India, Miss Emily Lord, had a vision that the land would be in Roberts Road, Beerwah. At the time this seemed impossible as the land belonged to the council and was not for sale. Soon after the land became available for sale and Glasshouse Country Baptist Church sold off its current building and land to purchase the property. The goal was to provide quality Christian education and this soon became the College Mission statement.

The church people gave up weekends clearing the land and putting in the first building which was a small demountable that housed the whole school. This building is still on the campus and is now called ‘B’ Block. Twenty years later and God has blessed the College with more than 100 classrooms, a modern library, theatre, Industrial Technology and Engineering workshops, a fantastic gym, Hospitality Kitchens, Science Laboratories, brand new Dance a Drama Studios, a state of the art Music centre, Kitchen Garden, three playgrounds, two large undercover areas, two ovals, two courtyards and access to a full working farm.

The College is situated in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland within the friendly township of Beerwah. It is built on a spacious site in close proximity to local sporting facilities, the railway station and town centre. The College offers quality Christian education for Prep – Year 12 students.

We are dedicated to the pursuit of academic, cultural and sporting excellence while providing a safe and caring community for children to flourish. We provide high-quality independent education. What sets us apart from other Sunshine Coast Christian schools is our commitment to keeping our fees extremely affordable for most families.

The staff of the College are committed Christians dedicated to providing the very best education for the students in their care. They see their role as more of a calling than just a job or vocation. From this flows their commitment to providing high-quality Christian school education for your children.
