We believe the way to educate students for their future cannot be based on the way we were dictated to in our past. Our approach to teaching and learning in the Middle School, aims to challenge and develop students who…
- have the right to be individuals and to choose their own learning paths
- are passionate, creative and inquisitive individuals who are ‘masters of their own learning’
- are excited about coming to school. Every. Single. Day.
- are compassionate people who work with local and global communities to solve problems and make a difference which helps them to develop empathy and understand their place in the world.
Using the Australian Curriculum, our inquiry based approach encourages students to look at the world from a different perspective, explore a range of opportunities and subject areas, freedom in choice… and in doing so ‘find their spark’.

Introduction of the International Baccalaureate Methodology
Faith Lutheran College has become the first regional school in South Australia to receive global recognition by being authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP). Joining over 5,000 schools worldwide, the International Baccalaureate Programme focuses on enabling students to direct their learning pathway, developing the skills and confidence students need to thrive and make a difference in the world. Having recently completed a three-year candidacy in the Middle School to achieve authorisation, Faith Lutheran College delivers the Australian Curriculum within the inquiry framework of the International Baccalaureate Programme.
Through a global lens, students explore what it means to be a learner in today’s rapidly changing world. Teachers work alongside students to guide and provide engaging learning experiences that intentionally develops attributes such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking, balance and reflection. The aim is for Faith graduates to step out into the world, with a global perspective that encourages students to push the boundaries of their comfort zone, use their talents and skills, and recognise their role as valuable and active global citizens.
Guided by IB principles, Faith’s approach to teaching “empowers teachers as the architects of learning excellence, working alongside engaged colleagues in a rewarding career supported by a strong global network. And it brings schools a strong reputation for successful outcomes that uplift the whole community.”
Being authorised as an IB World School provides the framework for Faith to embrace innovation from the ground up, developing lifelong learners who thrive and make a difference in our world. From an early age, Faith Lutheran College provides an educational journey that enables students to explore different opportunities, discover new passions, develop a wide range of skills, and in doing so, become truly world-ready.
