Grace Lutheran College is one college with two campuses, Rothwell and Caboolture. It is a community-based, co-educational private high school based on Brisbane northside. It is open to all families who are willing to support the college ethos, without discrimination as to class, race or belief.
Each of the campuses has a wide range of unique offerings and opportunities, ensuring every student has the chance to explore all their God-given gifts and talents. At Grace, every student is encouraged to learn and serve according to ‘The Grace Way’ — characterised by Grit, Growth and Grace.
Upon enrolment, students at Grace enter into the GEL program — a support and guidance program offered by college. GEL (Grow. Empower. Learn.) is a commitment to each student, to ensure he/she feels they belong to their community and has the fullest possible opportunity for spiritual, personal, social, physical and academic growth.
At Grace, ‘we know that not everyone is a scholar, not everyone is good with their hands, not everyone is good on the sports field or dance floor, but everyone is good at something’.
Rothwell and Caboolture both offer innovative, 21st Century-based learning that provides students with a wealth of opportunities. They offer a variety of sporting, cultural and service activities that students can take part in. Some of these include:
- Sport — Australian Rules Football, basketball, cricket, equestrian, fishing, futsal, hockey, netball, rugby league, soccer, softball, tennis, touch football, beach volleyball, indoor volleyball, swimming, water polo and Grace’s own Sporting Excellence Program, G.O.A.L.S.
- Creative and Performing Arts — Dance and drama troupes, a wide variety of musical ensembles and tech crews, film competitions, Film and TV club, Speech & Drama club, Art Club, art exhibitions and awards
- Robotics — International and local robotics programs, including FIRST Tech Challenge, FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST LEGO League

- Academic clubs and societies that appeal to a wide range of interests.
‘I don’t need to be the best IN the world, but to do my best FOR the world.’ Year 11 Grace student.
A crucial part of the Grace curriculum is Service-Learning. This is embedded in the curriculum, and students are encouraged to unpack and understand the needs and stories of those they are going to serve. Service-learning opportunities include supporting a local aged care facility with textile donations, visits and contributions to their dementia therapy program, and through connections with Indonesia partner schools.
Departments also donate products and labour reflective of their focus. Design Technology support local organisations through donated labour, including building picnic tables for a Riding School for the disabled, therapy benches for occupational therapy, and trailers. Business Department
students explore a variety of charities and create business ventures to help support their needs; Food Studies creates freezer meals for our Grace Community, so that these can be used at times when a Grace family may need some extra support.
Grace Lutheran College also has three partner primary schools: St Paul's Lutheran Primary School; Living Faith Lutheran Primary School; and Grace Lutheran Primary School. This unique schooling system offers the chance for families to immerse themselves in a school culture that is focused on giving space for children to be the best they can be.
Students travel to Grace Lutheran College from many areas in North Brisbane, Caboolture, Bribie Island and surrounds. Students have a wide range of travel options including public transport, private transport and the college’s extensive privately owned bus fleet.
