About Us

Most Christian schools in Australia belong to a wider association of Christian schools. It’s good to belong to something bigger than ourselves that reflects the vision and mission of our own school community. Christian Education National is a community of schools unified around the common goal of authentic, Bible-based, Christ-centred education. Through our focus on Christ’s Lordship over all of creation, the Bible being the lens as to how we view the world, and our commitment to empowering parents in their roles as the primary educators of their children, our desire for partnership is strong.

Our schools comprise of over 25,000 students from families that are choosing to partner with their Christian school. Schools that are committed to demonstrating a vibrant biblical faith, which permeates every aspect of learning, community life, policy, and practice in its associations and schools.

Christian Education National members include remote rural schools, large metropolitan schools, multicampus schools, trade-training centres, and incorporated school systems. CEN was established in 1966 and represents schools and their associations in every state and territory.
CEN is a not for profit public company that is structured around a National Board and State Councils, with a National Office providing a broad range of support to member schools.
