In 2010 Ps Ted Evans the Pastor of Whyalla AOG and Chair of Whyalla Christian School approached Sunrise to seek help to stabilise and grow the school. It was agreed after a short period of time that Sunrise would take ownership of the school and help maintain a Christian School in the town. The school has grown steadily and is now thriving in the now financially rejuvenated city of Whyalla.

Today, the school is led by the principal, Daniel Hamilton with governance, oversight and spiritual guidance entrusted to Adelaide Christian Schools (ACS), an incorporated association that governs several schools including Temple Christian College, Sunrise Christian Schools, Adelaide Christian Schools Early Learning Centres, Discovery Christian College, Queensland, as well as international schools, Sunrise Bethel and Edai Town Christian Schools in Papua New Guinea.
