About Luther College

Established in 1964, Luther College is an independent, coeducational secondary school of the Lutheran Church of Australia.

Luther College provides learning opportunities and experiences in an environment where Christ is central, excellence is pursued and relationships are valued. 

We are passionate about learning in, and through, a rich diversity of experiences. Our learning is prioritised and purposeful. We know that through education, and being focused on preparing people for future opportunities, we are best prepared to lead tomorrow.

In addition to academic learning, Luther College invests in the formation of strong relationships, acknowledging that these are precursors for positive communities, safe learning and effective leading. We are committed to fostering a culture of care, collaboration and service within our local and our global community.

The College recognises the significance of the transition from primary to secondary schooling. With this in mind, the Luther community works together to create a welcoming and positive learning environment for its Year 7s with a transition program that begins midway through Year 6.

Senior students are also well prepared for the transition to tertiary education and adulthood. Our Senior Years Centre, along with key educational, relational and support staff, is designed to meet the diverse learning and study requirements of the latter years of secondary school.


What do we value at Luther College?

Service                 selflessness, leadership, compassion, humility, awareness, empathy
