Luther provides significant opportunities for students to develop both within and beyond the classroom. Working with students as they become young adults and move through their final years of secondary schooling is a privilege.
Luther College values the opportunity to partner with parents to support, guide and shape young people and provide learning experiences and opportunities to support, encourage, challenge and grow students from children to adults.
There is an expectation that all Luther College students will give of their best. We expect students to be focused on, and committed to, purposefully planning to improve their learning, and to put in place positive practices that will help them to become contributors to our society.
At Luther College we foster a culture of learning where excellence across the educational program is encouraged, supported and rewarded. To achieve educational outcomes of quality at Luther, learning is relational, relevant, rigorous and reflective.
Reassured by the emphasis on care, and with the existence of a supportive educational environment, the significant opportunities for learning can be a focus. Luther College is well known for the comprehensive educational offerings it provides with an extensive elective program for the younger students expanding into a large range of VCE subjects for senior students.
Our online learning management system Omnia plays a large part in daily life at Luther, providing an all-in-one mobile-responsive community portal. Omnia enables students, together with their parents, to be actively and positively engaged in their learning.
Opportunities for all
The curriculum at Luther College is broadly based and covers all Key Learning Areas. It aims to equip students for successful participation in their future lives in society. The curriculum recognises the different learning styles of students and provides for those individual needs, while requiring students to undertake a broad program of studies in the compulsory years of schooling. Assessments are diverse and progress is reported regularly to parents via our online learning management system Omnia.
The College offers German, Mandarin and Indonesian, with languages compulsory in Years 7 and 8. Students have the opportunity to audition for the Performing Arts or Music Stream in Year 7.
In Year 9, students undertake The Rite Journey, a course designed to help their journey into adulthood. The course successfully combines emotional and social education with practical methodologies which have students ‘doing’ and ‘experiencing’. ‘Rock and Water’ activities, drumming and juggling skills, a service challenge and the adventure camp ‘Luther Journey’, combine with practices of meditation, silence, journal writing, mentoring, sharing and storytelling to form a program in which students are challenged physically, mentally, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. The journey framework of celebration and ceremony offers the important acknowledgement of students’ transition from childhood to beginning adulthood.
The College provides a wide range of pathways and opportunities for students to explore, be challenged and strive for academic excellence.
Luther College is well known for the comprehensive educational offerings it provides and we pride ourselves on our students consistently attaining outstanding VCE results. At Luther we also want our students to be good people, to do their best in their VCE and give them opportunities to develop the important skills of communication, collaboration, critical and creative thinking and self-management.
Senior School students begin their career exploration through small group work and individual meetings with a Careers Counsellor to plan pathways through senior school and beyond. Information evenings, one on one support and advice are just some of the ways we are helping students find the path that’s right for them.
Each year over 90% of our Year 12 students will continue onto further study after they graduate from Luther.
Our students enter a variety of university courses in areas such as Health, Management and Commerce, Society and Culture, Creative Studies, Science, Engineering and Education.
