History and Logo
St Andrews Christian College commenced in 1983 at Surrey Hills in response to a growing demand for a distinctive Christian school in the area that reflected and supported Christian family values and provided an education that assisted students in realising their potential in all areas of the curriculum.
After a period of steady growth the College moved to the premises in Burwood in 1998. In 2000 the College was also able to offer secondary classes.
In 2010, following much hard work, perseverance and prayer the College moved to its present site in Wantirna South. This enabled the College to continue with fulfilling the vision of establishing a strong Christ-centred Prep to Year 12 college in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs.
The logo of St Andrews Christian College represents a cameo of what the school stands for:
- The Christian Ethos
- The need for a personal faith in Jesus Christ
- That all our endeavours should bring Glory to God
The badge has the cross of St Andrew central, a white cross with a blue background. Andrew was a disciple of Jesus and is known for his personal faith in Christ and also for bringing others to Christ.
The cross is also the Scottish Flag and indicates the School’s origin with the Presbyterian Church which had its foundation in Scotland.
The badge is shield shape and represents the shield of faith, while the motto reminds us that all we do should bring Glory to God.
