Chinchilla Christian College has a rich history that tells a story of God's faithfulness. The school was established in 1983 by a group of local Christian parents who had a vision for Christian education in the area.
In 2023 the College celebrated its 40th anniversary with a community celebration. Many people through the College's history were part of the celebration and contributed their time to tell the story of what God has done through His school.
Past Principals & Notable Teachers

The original school building was built on 88 Oak Street.
The motto "Let your Light Shine" was established.
The school continued to run offsite and overcame the threat of closure through God's provision.
Having returned to Oak Street, the school continued to move forward.
