Registration and Accreditation

Mountain View Adventist College is owned and operated by Seventh-day Adventist Schools (Greater Sydney) Ltd, an organisation of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

It is registered and accredited by the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA), which regulates all independent schools in NSW and dictates the NSW curriculum guidelines and outcomes, including responsibilities regarding the Australian curriculum. In addition, we are a member of the Association of Independent Schools (AIS) of NSW, Heads of Independent Co-educational Schools (HICES) and Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA).

Our strategic planning committee ensures that our school has a financially sustainable future and remains well-resourced. A strategic management plan informs our school's future spiritual, academic, cultural and philosophical direction. These plans are available to parents and community members.
