Melton Christian College began in 1985 with just nine students and one teacher in a rented hall. Today, the College has two properties.
Our Brookfield Campus, located on Brooklyn Road, is established on sixteen acres. The campus is fully equipped for students from their first year of primary schooling, right through to their last year of secondary schooling on the one site.
Brookfield Campus is blessed to have a double gym, a year twelve common room, study rooms, a cricket pitch, footy/soccer fields, double outdoor basketball courts, classrooms and specialist rooms, a library, a music and performing arts auditorium, science and information technology laboratories, hospitality and woodwork rooms, and visual arts classrooms.
During 2021, we begin another building project on our existing campus.
One of our older buildings that has served its purpose well over the years will be demolished and replaced with a new two-storey building. The new building will have six classrooms, student toilets, an administration section, and the uniform shop.

Toolern Vale Campus
In 2016, Melton Christian College purchased a large allotment of land on Coburns Road in Toolern Vale, just to the north of central Melton. This property is close to the intersection of Minns Road with Coburns Road, on the route to McPherson Park. The campus is 83 acres of open land, previously used for grazing stock.
Through 2019, the College undertook studies and research work into how the potential of this Toolern Vale property could be best realised. The news of a special state government grant complemented the vision, and now the exciting news is that this land will be developed into a second campus of Melton Christian College.
Development at Toolern Vale campus will take place in three stages:
Stage 1: Junior Primary classrooms, Administration building, outdoor play areas, playing fields
Stage 2: Additional classrooms, additional specialist resources, extensions to carparking, further development of outdoor areas including playing fields.
Stage 3: Increased capacity for upper Primary students.

Breaking the Ground in Toolern Vale
On Wednesday 12th May, members of our College community joined with founders Simon and Jan Liefting and their family, College leaders, local MPs Steve McGhie MP and Mary-Anne Thomas MP, members of the Melton Community, and student representatives to break the ground on our Toolern Vale Campus.
It was a special morning for onlookers as we witnessed the founders of Melton Christian College break the ground and dedicate this new work to the Lord. It was a wonderful celebration of God’s faithfulness!
