Our College

About Encounter

Encounter Lutheran College is a thriving school of over 700 students, with a heart for community and a desire to nurture the social, emotional, academic and spiritual nature of your child. Implementing the Australian Curriculum, we provide the additional benefit of offering the Primary Years Program (ELC-Year 6) and Middle Years Program (Year 7-9) of the International Baccalaureate. With a highly equipped teaching staff who undertake ongoing professional learning, our inquiry-based, rigorous and contemporary approach to education values each learner and the unique journey they embark upon. Rather than learning being limited to the information presented to students, they are encouraged to become active learners and to ask questions that enrich and deepen their understanding.

Encounter operates a thriving Early Learning Centre that enables families to support their children as they transition from a pre-school environment into a school context. Children enrolled in our Early Learning Centre make friends, become familiarised with the College campus and can move into Foundation (Reception) prepared and excited for their school years. Encounter also operates Out of School Hours Care and Vacation Care services.

Encounter Lutheran College is situated on 33 Hectares (82 Acres), minutes from the centre of Victor Harbor in a rural setting, with views of the hills and local coastal icons such as The Bluff and the Coorong. Our natural environment resonates with our families and our focus, with outdoor education, sustainability and a holistic approach to student learning and wellbeing upheld as intentional and valued aspects of our identity. Whether from a faith background or not, it’s important for all families to feel welcome at Encounter. We also want families to know the heart of our College is centred on Christ’s message of compassion, respect and love for all.

Encounter is fortunate to have a committed and balanced staff team, who endeavour to meet the academic, emotional, spiritual and social needs of each child in their care.
