Who We Are

Christian Education National is a network of ten member associations, 15 schools, and one trade training centre in Victoria who actively support one another in the provision of Biblically-based Christian Education. CEN works together to support and encourage our members by providing services to assist schools to be Christ-centred educational communities. We are deeply committed to seeing the young people of Victoria educated in a wholistic manner in which faith and culture are rigorously engaged. Our network touches more than 6000 students in Victoria as we engage thoughtfully in quality education.

We love what we do and especially enjoy seeing our schools cover such a wide range of sizes, socio-economic demographics, urban and regional communities and serving a diverse range of students, families and communities. Our schools are renowned for their pastoral care and attention to the whole person as well as their commitment to a high standard of teaching and learning.

CEN specialises in providing this from within a uniquely Christian context and offers the following services:


Training and support for school executive and boards is available to support boards in Victoria. Please contact your State Executive Officer, Karen Hooper for more information.


Providing up to date information and liaison with Independent schools Victoria (ISV) and the Victorian Regulations and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) and other educational authorities

Professional learning and training

Pastoral support

Curriculum Support
