Head of College's Welcome

What sets Concordia Lutheran College apart from other schools?

As Head of College and a parent myself, I understand how much time it can take to choose the ‘right’ school for your child, a place where they will be happy to learn and grow.

As you can imagine I often get asked the question ‘What sets Concordia Lutheran College apart from other schools?’

I could answer, ‘We offer a holistic Christian education in a coeducational environment for day and boarding students.’

If you asked our students the same question they may well say they have finally found a home, a place where they belong and make close friends; a place where teachers inspire them to learn and grow musically, physically, socially and spiritually.

Often visitors to our College remark to me that, “It’s the feel!” that makes the first impression such a memorable one. We know that it is, in fact, a reflection of our values which give emphasis to character traits such as respect, compassion, integrity and courage, founded on the belief that gender equity, cultural diversity and stewardship of the earth are essential features of any successful community.

Concordia is a College for the whole family, where siblings can learn and grow together. That’s why we offer the most generous sibling discounts and the best ‘Boarding Bundle’ in Toowoomba. In fact, overall, we strive to keep our fees as low as possible and all inclusive. Additionally, a range of scholarships and bursaries are available on application throughout the year.

At Concordia, we’re proud that 7 out of 8 parents who visit the College for the first time will go on to enrol their child or children. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that we are a College spread across three smaller campuses. This benefits children’s learning, yet at the same time offers students greater choice and the opportunity to access a huge variety of sport, music, the Arts, science, technology and so much more.

I warmly welcome you and invite you to come and tour our College to experience for yourself why staff, parents and students recognise that ‘With One Heart’ many lives are united.
