Lighthouse Christian College is a private Christian school located in Keysborough, Victoria, Australia.
Lighthouse Christian College has been active for over two decades. From humble beginnings in 1989, Ps Richard Warner's (president) vision has been fulfilled, with the school growing to over 400 students. It is one of the most multi cultural schools in the independent sector in Australia. In 2009 it made front page news in The Age newspaper as being the number one school across Victoria for percentage of student graduates going on to a tertiary education. The college continues to rake in marvelous accolades such as outstanding NAPLAN marks across the board and with a Yr 8 student receiving the highest score in Victoria for the Australian Mathematics Competition. What is remarkable about the result is the exceptionally high number of students who do not speak English as their language of the home environment, and the socio economic background of these homes. In 2000, the current Primary classrooms, science labs and the C-Block classrooms and offices opened. Later, in 2004,a new I.T Lab, Visual-Communication/Art classrooms, D-Block classrooms and staffroom. A Home-Economics room was planned but was turned into a Drama room, and later a homeroom. However, having received sufficient funding, work is under way to install fittings and appliances. It is due for completion very soon. The BER funding allowed the recent construction of dynamic new resources visible from Springvale Rd. These include language laboratory facilities. The school is part of the Lighthouse Church, of the Australian Christian Churches denomination, but staff and students come from may church affiliations. The Home-Economics room was opened at the beginning of 2012. The Creative Learning Center, The Hub (Library, seminar rooms and computer room) and The Language Express buildings were all opened Mid 2009. The Creative Learning Center provides support for children from Kinder through to Year 12. The students learn Spanish in the language express building which is also fitted with a third computer facility.
