Back in the 1990s a group of parents in the rural area south of Darwin had been transporting their children to the Christian schools at Palmerston and Marrara. These families were keen to have a Christian school in their own region.
In 1996 with the assistance of the Northern Territory Christian Schools Association (NTCSA), Litchfield Christian School was started at Bees Creek with three primary classes. There was considerable parental input and new buildings of a special tropical design were put in place.
In 2008, the school expanded its operation with a Middle School program and an Early Learning Centre that provides long day care, including an educational program for three to five year old children.
The school changed its name in 2011 to Sattler Christian College and is registered to operate an Early Learning Centre and to provide education from Transition to Year 9.
In 2016 we celebrated the school’s 20th anniversary.
