Greater care Greater learning

The statement Greater care Greater learning encapsulates a central philosophy of a Luther College education. It is our belief that if students are nurtured in their adolescent years, encouraged to pursue their dreams and challenged with an engaging curriculum, they will grow into responsible and motivated young adults.

At Luther, we endeavour to provide the best education possible in a Christian setting where the whole person can grow and develop with confidence and dignity. 

The College’s extensive programs offer all students opportunity for spiritual and moral growth, service and social involvement, excellence in academics, the arts and physical activities, to prepare them with confidence for their individual vocations and a Christian life. 

As a Christian school Luther College values Service, Community, Excellence and Integrity. The College provides opportunities and experiences for young people to grow and prepare to successfully contribute to society with confidence and dignity.

Greater Futures

The Luther College Strategic Design, entitled Greater Futures, was shaped by the College Council in collaboration with the College community. Importantly the Strategic Design was informed by the foundational mission and values of the College and focussed by a statement of purpose.

Luther College will continue to work with students and their parents to capitalise on the strong foundations of the College for the creation of greater futures for all.
