Faith Lutheran College is a dynamic and vibrant learning community. We see every child as a unique creation of God and one for whom Christ has died for. We believe that the student is at the heart of education. We are relentless in our pursuit to help our students find their place in this world and develop their God-given talents. At the very centre of who we are is student-choice and student-voice. Faith is a place where students’ dream and aspirations become reality.

  • Caring and relational
  • Passionate, driven and dynamic
  • Growth Focused and a lifelong learner

Staff Testimonials

Paul Krause

Faith is a great place to work with supportive colleagues and fantastic students. I have been able to develop in my professional teaching practice during my time at Faith. Being part of a community raising the next generation of leaders for the Lockyer Valley and surrounding areas has been most rewarding.

Lisbeth Goldston

In my experience, Faith Lutheran College is a place of growth. Every individual who enters these grounds, whether student or staff, cannot help but learn. The personal and community engagement and level of pastoral care, affords holistic education to each member of the Faith Life Community. That is what sets Faith apart.

Jo Robbins

One of the things I love about working at Faith is the real relationships I have with students as I share a small part of their life’s journey. I genuinely miss them when they leave as young adults at the end of year 12 and I love catching up with them in the years after.
