Principal's Welcome

Faith Lutheran College is a dynamic, constantly evolving and high-performing Christian education institution. It is a privilege to work at Faith and be surrounded by passionate educators and a truly impressive student cohort. The sense of community, the attitudes and behaviours of students, the academic rigour on offer and the outstanding learning facilities at Faith are all significant strengths of the College.

— Steven Wilksch, Principal

Faith has long been a leading provider of quality education in South Australia.  This is well supported by the outstanding academic achievements of our students over many years.

Quality schools are characterised by many things. Essentially however, a clear vision for the future, a documented plan for achieving that vision, a deep and rich investment in the quality of teaching being offered and a focus on individual students is paramount. At Faith, our vision is to be a leading school that ensures our students move into post-secondary life well prepared for the challenges and rewards of a changing world.

Faith Lutheran College operates over two campuses. The Junior School on Maria Street in Tanunda, has been educating students for over 145 years, and has welcomed a significant number of Barossans through the doors. The memories and stories of our Junior School campus is unique. The Middle and Senior School on Magnolia Road was purpose-built from a community-driven need to provide an additional secondary school option in the Barossa. Learn more about our story here.

There is significant excitement surrounding the future direction of Faith Lutheran College, with strong, professional and caring teaching staff across the College, the inclusion of the International Baccalaureate in the Primary Years (IBPYP) and Middle Years (IBMYP) and a South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) complemented by the School-Based Apprenticeship and Training Program (SBAT) – it is certainly an exciting time to be a part of the Faith community.
