On the 9th of February, 1984 William Carey Christian School opened with a total enrolment of four students. The school was initially located at the Reformed Church in Liverpool but moved to St Stephen’s Anglican Church in Cabramatta then the Uniting Church in Ashcroft before settling at the current site in Prestons in 1988. In 2009, government funding enabled WCCS to build a Prep School, which brought the total number of students from Prep to Year 12 to approximately 1,300.

A strong membership is essential to help elect the Board of the school, which provides governance over the entire school, and so each member of the School Association is required to agree to a Statement of Faith. Teachers at WCCS can also be Association members and would agree with the statements made. You can read our Statement of Faith here.

WCCS is an independent Christian school and the Association is a self governing, autonomous body incorporated under ASIC and operates as a company with liability limited by guarantee. The Association is made up of members who, through prayer under God, determine the constitution of the Board, and who guide and review the activities of the Board through an Annual General Meeting and three extraordinary meetings each year.
Association members are encouraged to be involved in school activities, where appropriate, and promote the school and the Association where God gives opportunity. The Association takes a strong interest in government policies and funding that relate to independent Christian schools. The school belongs to the AIS NSW (the Association of Independent Schools of NSW) and the AACS (Australian Association of Christian Schools).
