Welcome to Carmichael College

Carmichael College is a Christian Prep to Year 6 co-educational College located on the southern border of the Morayfield shire.

We believe that all students (and their families) belong here. Prayer and grace-based values form the foundation of a genuine Christian community where relationships and people matter. Carmichael College has a team of highly committed staff whose aim is to support and encourage students and families, through pastoral care, prayer and authentic relationships.

Miss Amy Carmichael

Miss Amy Wilson Carmichael (1867 to 1951) was born in Millisle, Northern Ireland where she initially worked with the poor mill working women.

Amy wanted to dedicate her life to serving God by sharing the Good News about the Lord Jesus Christ. At first she went to Japan to work in a mission but finally, in the mid 1890s, she started her work at Dohnavur in southern India where, in 1901, she started an orphanage for girls rescued from temple slavery. The Indian Government made this practice illegal in 1948. She remained there for 56 years never returning home again. The Dohnavur Fellowship continues today, now supporting approximately 500 people on 400 acres with 16 nurseries and a hospital.

Our Core Values

The Core Values for Carmichael College are from our School Scripture Verse; “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8 (NIV)

Justice

Our classrooms must reflect God’s righteousness; protect the powerless from the powerful; and be fair and consistent.

Love & Mercy

Mercy, grace and forgiveness are central to the heart of God, and therefore to the heart of our classrooms.

Humility & Obedience

God desires a heart that wants to serve Him. A humble walk requires worship and service to God and to all people.

What We Believe

Our Vision

The Vision of Carmichael College is to enrich minds through excellent education, transform hearts for Christ, and serve in our Community.
