Central Coast Adventist School is located just inland from the seaside suburb of Terrigal, on the Central Coast of New South Wales. Established in 1969, the school is a co-educational, non-academically selective K to 12 school, owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Of the 900 students, approximately 73% of the enrolment comes from non-Seventh-day Adventist faith backgrounds. The school seeks to deliver an authentically Christian and uniquely Adventist education experience to all who desire a schooling experience that places God at the centre. Authenticity is the school’s catch-cry as all involved seek to find that union between words and deeds that underwrites who we all are and how we represent community. ‘What we say and what we do shows others who we are’; not just words on a page but a way of viewing the world. Jesus, His life, His death and His example forms the core of the school’s faith identity. The Bible stands as its foundation and reference point. The school has a holistic approach to education where academia, sporting pursuits, the arts, personal development, leadership and authentic spirituality – all have their place, form and function inside the school program and extended community. The school is proud of its developing heritage regarding more than just commendable HSC results, an ever expanding subject selection profile that is as broad and varied as schools twice its size. An extra-curricular program that boasts Outdoor Education, various overseas travel experiences (from France and Europe through to New Zealand the Pacific), numerous cultural pursuits (plays, art shows, musicals and performances), sporting teams crossing the spectrum of pursuits and with representation through to the highest levels (including national and professional sport graduates from the school) as well as intentional service focused opportunities for students. The school takes the role of being the ‘hands and feet’ of Jesus to those less fortunate, to those disadvantaged and to those that society leaves out, very seriously. So much so that the school operates an ‘anti-schoolies’ week for senior students that leads them to choosing to spend time overseas working in orphanages and schools in the South Pacific and South East Asia, rather than participate in the waste and excess that is the evolving ‘schoolies’ tradition in eastern Australia. The school welcomes parental involvement in school life and actively pursues an identity of being a part of, not apart from, the local community. School is community in action.
