St Peters Lutheran College is a co-educational day and boarding school located in the Brisbane suburb of Indooroopilly. The College offers a comprehensive education experience for students from Prep to Year 12, with Boarding available from Year 6. St Peters has provided excellence in Christian co-education since 1945, and is one of Queensland’s leading independent schools.
Multiple Pathways & Infinite Opportunities
The curriculum and opportunities available at St Peters Indooroopilly are innovative and diverse. In the Primary Years (Prep – Year 6), students study the inquiry-based International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP). Their education is extended with a range of Pastoral Care activities, co and extra-curricular Sport and Music options, unique physical development initiatives, and Language and Art studies. These opportunities continue through Junior High (Years 7 – 9) and into the Senior School (Years 10 – 12).
As they progress, St Peters students are introduced to further innovative initiatives, like the Robotics program; the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DoE); Service Learning, where students commit themselves to community-focussed projects; and outdoor education, including the iconic five-week Ironbark experience at Crows Nest, Queensland, in Year 9. In the Senior years, students can choose the academic pathway they wish to take. Options include the Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority (QCAA) pathway; the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP); and Vocational Education and Training (VET).
Equipped for the Future
St Peters provides a high quality, holistic education. The emphasis on global understanding and international mindedness that stems from the International Baccalaureate’s PYP, and the IBDP, extends into the College’s co and extra-curricular options. The College’s motto, Plus Ultra (Ever Higher) permeates all activities, with students encouraged to get involved and achieve their personal best.
St Peters proudly offers a world-class Music and Performing Arts program, as well as a comprehensive Sport program. The College is a member of the Associated Independent Colleges (AIC) competition, for boys; the Queensland Girls Secondary Schools Sport Association (QGSSSA); and is home to the St Peters Western Swim Club.
