Good News Lutheran College is a co-educational, non-selective, Lutheran, independent day school, serving students aged 4-18. Located in Tarneit, Victoria, the all-through school has approximately 786 enrolled students.
Good News Lutheran College was established in 1997 as Good News Primary School by members of the Christ the Lord, Laverton, and St Philip’s, Werribee, Lutheran congregations. The school was renamed Good News Christian School in 2000, then Good News Lutheran School in 2005. The school became Good News Lutheran College in 2010 following approval to extend to secondary education. The first Year 7 cohort commenced in 2011, with each additional secondary year level added over the following six years. Good News Lutheran College is a member of Lutheran Education Australia.
