The Lutheran Church of Australia has a rich history in education. Since the first Lutheran school opened in 1839 Lutheran schools have grown considerably. The growth in Lutheran schools has been very much part of the growth of the non-government school sector and reflects the church’s commitment to serving both its people and the Australian community.
Today more than 35,000 students receive their education in 85 Lutheran schools throughout Australia. They are located in every state and territory apart from the ACT. In addition, it is estimated that 3,600 children are educated and cared for in around forty Lutheran early childhood centres around the nation.
Lutheran schools are strongly linked by a common ethos, aiming to provide quality education in which the gospel of Jesus Christ informs all learning and teaching, all human relationships and all activities. As Lutheran schools are independently operated, the education program they offer can be tailored to serve the needs of their local communities.
Lutheran schools gear their resources to ensure they remain faithful to their mission and are accessible to the community. Although independently operated, Lutheran schools and early childhood centres are linked and supported through regional and national offices.
