Emmaus Christian College is led by a team of people who are focussed on seeing the growth of God's Kingdom through the achievement of our vision and mission. Our Strategic Plan is based on the foundation truths of the Bible.

Board of Governors

As an Incorporated Association, Emmaus Christian College has a Board of Governors who are responsible for the oversight of the College. The Board’s primary task is to seek Godly wisdom as it makes decisions regarding the direction of the school and oversees financial matters in order to fulfill the College's mission of providing a distinctly Christian education. Our Board members are all passionate Christians who believe strongly in the value and relevance of Christian education and include College parents, staff and the broader community.

The Board of Governors is supported by the Advisory Panel who is comprised primarily of Pastors from the Churches that represent our parent community.

Leadership Team

Our staff leadership team is comprised of dedicated, and skilled Christian professionals who are sincerely passionate about the wellbeing and development of each and every student. They are determined to see each child grow in their identity as children of God through Jesus Christ.

Student Leadership

Emmaus Christian College has three Houses; Ruby (red), Emerald (green), and Topaz (yellow). Student Leaders are selected to represent the College in academics, art, sport, faith and two students are selected to be overall College Captains.

Our Year 12 Captains are student representatives of the College and Student leaders who have a genuine concern for Christian outreach. Captains were elected for their leadership skills, academic achievement, demonstration of their Christian faith; commitment to extra-curricular activities that build relationships and community, and their ability to represent the student body equitably.
