Concordia Lutheran College is a coeducational Christian school catering to the diverse needs of all the members of one family from Kindy to Year 12. It is not elitist or academically selective, but a College for parents who desire the very best for their children. At Concordia each individual is valued.
Students experience the best of two worlds. Although the three campuses of our College are of medium size, students benefit from large scale opportunities and broad curriculum offerings across Junior, Middle and Senior College. Our Vision is that students would become life-long learners and proactive citizens of the global community, utilising their God-given gifts and talents for the benefit of others.
As it is Our Purpose to encourage students to develop relationships and confidence to become resilient young people who care for each other, we create opportunities for students to be self-directed, insightful and creative learners. This is also the case within our boarding community where students are encouraged to be open and responsive to others by mentoring younger students.
Concordia is an innovative and progressive College that builds upon and values its rich traditions dating back to 1946. Ever since early settlement of the Darling Downs by German pioneering families, Lutheran education, and indeed Concordia Lutheran College, has welcomed students from a range of cultural backgrounds, including those from rural and indigenous communities of western and northern Queensland, as well as students from foreign shores.
Since its humble beginnings as a school with an enrolment of 27 students, crests, names, and mottos have changed variously, as we have grown to become one of Toowoomba's most respected and influential coeducational, boarding schools. Yet, the true meaning of the Latin word 'Concordia' - union and harmony - has stood the test of time throughout.
Our new motto: With One Heart… serves to unite the Many Stories bound within this prospectus as a glimpse of the rich educational environment students of Concordia experience on a daily basis.
Often visitors to our College remark that "It's the feel!" that makes the first impression such a memorable one. We know it to be 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.
As a coeducational school of the Lutheran Church of Australia, Concordia Lutheran College exists to nurture and empower young people to shape and enrich our world through a life of faith and service. We are a Christian community where God's message of grace is proclaimed, and this guides how we teach, live and work together.
