Paralowie Campus Year 7 – 12+

Welcome to the Paralowie Campus of Temple Christian College.

Temple Christian College is a Year 7 to 12+ Christian, co-educational school operating over several campuses within the state. Started in 2001, the Paralowie Campus is nestled in the heart of the Northern Suburbs and offers a comprehensive curriculum, catering to the needs of a wide range of students with differing cultural backgrounds and experiences. Embracing the full vision of Temple Christian College, the Paralowie Campus offers its students and their families all the benefits of a local area school in an authentic Christian community.

Temple Christian College is a member school of Adelaide Christian Schools, a ministry of Adelaide Christian Centre. Under the governance of Adelaide Christian Schools, incorporating Temple Christian College, Sunrise Christian School, Sunrise Christian School—Whyalla, Sunrise Bethel Christian School–Port Moresby, PNG and in relationship with Bethany Christian School, we encourage each student to 'Pursue excellence for the glory of God' and to become a person of influence in their home, in their community, in their workplace, in their church and in our nation.

It is the mandate of our school to nurture and encourage each student in the development of their Christian character and calling, releasing them in due season to fulfil the purposes of God in their lives. Acting as an extension of the home, our passion at Temple Christian College is to provide a safe and encouraging Christian community which prepares our students for their life beyond the classroom.

All of our teachers and staff here at Temple Christian College are passionate about our local young people and have a desire to see them grow to pursue the very best in everything they do.

As Campus Principal, I thank you for taking the time to visit our campus website and invite you to consider the information contained within. Please feel free to contact the school if you have any further questions.
