Regents Park Christian School (RPCS) opened in 1976 in the geographic centre of Sydney and is a ministry of Heartbeat Church Regents Park. Our strongest asset is the quality and diversity of the student body. Their commitment to reflect the vision, values and ethos of the school remains our greatest testimony to the community.
RPCS has established a high profile in the local community and the Christian School movement in Australia. The school is founded on a model of pastoral care, a sense of community, service, spiritual growth, the development and use of diverse gifts and non-selective academic excellence.

BORN TO SOAR PTY LTD
Born to Soar are specialists in gifted education. The student courses are designed to specifically address the mind of a gifted thinker, to be challenging and fast-paced while allowing for a deep, rich exploration of concepts, skills and ideas. Courses developed by our curriculum designers are aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
Research informs us that gifted minds are engaged when deeper understandings can be explored, analysed, invented, reinvented, challenged, questioned and shared with other like minds. To excite our most able thinkers, to stretch their capabilities, to seek their potential, to capture their imaginations, to fuel their love of learning, to nurture relationships with other gifted minds is quintessential to the purpose for the Born to Soar existence. As such, Born to Soar has established an educational community catering for gifted students through the Centres for Gifted and Talented Education, three-year-olds through to secondary gifted school programs.
