Luther College is located in the Melbourne suburb of Croydon Hills, just minutes from the picturesque Yarra Valley. Set on 30 acres, our lush and beautiful grounds together with an extensive range of modern facilities offers students the ideal place to learn and grow.

At Luther College, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence and the provision of a Lutheran educational service that is progressive and future-focused but importantly, values based and aligned with our students’ needs.

Our Values: Excellence - Integrity - Creativity - Service - Community 

Today’s learner will live in a future workforce that is unlike any to have come before. The college has an extensive offering of elective subjects designed to allow students to be curious and explore their areas of interest. These multi-disciplinary experiences help prepare our students for VCE and life after Luther.

At the heart of our educational offerings are rich, personalised learning experiences embedded in a contemporary and innovative curriculum that encourages student agency. This approach is developing the essential knowledge, skills and attributes our students need for an exceptional future.

Luther College values the opportunity to partner with parents to support, guide and shape their children and provide outstanding learning opportunities which encourage and challenge them to achieve their personal best.

Pastoral care and wellbeing is at the heart of the educational experience at Luther College. Our pastoral care program helps students feel connected, giving them a sense of belonging from the day they start at the college.

We know that young people learn best when they feel safe, comfortable and connected in an atmosphere that is nurturing, yet challenging and motivating. Our Home Group Mentors, Heads of House, Directors of Sub Schools and Heads of Year work together with staff to provide a supportive network of care for our students. Vertical, House-based Home Groups, operate within each group including students from Year 7 to Year 12, enriching the sense of connection and belonging.

Luther College also offers an extensive range of co-curricular opportunities spanning art and design, performing arts, music, sport, technology, food technology and more. Students regularly compete in House athletics, swimming and cross-country carnivals as well as interschool competitions through the Eastern Independent Schools Melbourne program.

The Advanced Support Program and Individual Recognition of Excellence (ASPIRE) is available for students who are pursuing performance excellence in the fields of Performing Arts or Sport. The program provides support and recognition, plus additional opportunities for students pursuing elite pathways.

As a parent, you want what is best for your child.  At Luther College, we understand that the partnership we form with you is paramount as we build the core relationship that will support, guide, and shape your child’s future.

Together we will help your child develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Under the care and guidance of our expert teachers your child will be empowered to increasingly lead their own learning. Their learning opportunities will be personalised to engage them in a learning experience that excites and challenges them.

In this age of digitisation and globalisation, we should not underestimate the rate of exponential change and the impact on education and its purpose. At Luther College, we are committed to the pursuit of excellence and the provision of an educational service that is progressive and future-focused but importantly Christ-centred, values-based and aligned with our students’ needs.

As we step boldly forward to meet the needs of our students in this global future context, the African proverb it takes a village to raise a child has never been truer. Collaborative partnering that begins with you and empowers your child in their learning is the way to best prepare them for life in the evolving global landscape.  At Luther, it is your child and their learning that matters most.

Luther College certainly is an exciting place to be as we forge a path to the future that is shaped by our values of excellence, integrity, creativity, service and community.
