Christian Education, the Riverside Way
With humble beginnings in 1983, Maryborough Christian Academy has flourished into the sophisticated, market leading co-educational establishment proudly known as Riverside Christian College. I am delighted to be able to extend a warm welcome to our community of families, staff, industry partners and most importantly students.
Nearing 1800 students in 2023, the College has experienced rapid growth and facilities expansion. Our commitment to delivering a ‘Quality Christian Education’ spearheads all decisions to ensure we develop individual talents, interests, and abilities of our students underpinned by Christian Values.
