St Andrews strives to provide a high quality education in a Christian context. We value a holistic approach, and encourage students to develop values that enrich the intellect, nurture the spirit, develop social responsibility and create healthy lifestyles. Located on the southern end of the Gold Coast, St Andrews has beautiful views of the Tallebudgera Valley. Our modern campus is growing all the time, opening a brand new state of the art Library Resource Centre for the Middle and Senior School in 2009, a magnificent Multi-purpose Hall in the Junior School in 2010, and a superb Covered Outdoor Learning Area in 2012. A new Tuckshop, additional learning spaces, and a learning commons is currently under construction and will be completed by the middle of 2014. An Early Learning Centre offering Pre-prep will be constructed during 2014, in readiness for a 2015 start. St Andrews is a school that seeks to provide an environment where each person is valued and accepted as a child of God. Each is challenged to discover, develop and use their gifts and abilities for personal growth and service to others. We hope that the enriching and fulfilling opportunities experienced in our community stay with students for life. Our three sub-schools: Junior School (Prep-Year 6); Middle School (Years 7-9); and Senior School (Years 10-12) means that teaching and learning is tailored to the developmental stage of students. The Junior School, using the International Baccalaureate's Primary Years Program (PYP) as its framework places a strong emphasis on developing both the fundamentals of numeracy and literacy, as well as critical inquiry skills. Middle schooling methodology, covering a broad curriculum, is practised in Years 7, 8 and 9 to guide students through those early adolescent years. Encouraging students to take responsibility for learning enables them to move towards being independent learners in preparation for senior schooling. Senior School students select a pathway that reflects their academic and vocational needs. Information communication technologies are integrated across the curriculum for all year levels. The staff of St Andrews are motivated by a genuine sense of helping each child realise his or her potential. As a learning community our staff are engaged in ongoing professional development and refinement of our programs to ensure that we are improving the quality of learning experiences available to our children and young people. St Andrews is widely regarded as a caring school. We place a high priority on pastoral care. In recent times we have begun to implement Positive Psychology, an approach that seeks to proactively build well-being and resilience. Our staff work hard at developing nurturing relationships with students because encouraging and affirming relationships lie at the heart of effective learning. A strong sense of community and belonging can be found at St Andrews. We enjoy strong parental support and involvement, and seek to work in partnership with the parents of our students. I look forward to welcoming you to St Andrews.

Students and staff at St Andrews Lutheran College enjoy a diverse range of access to Information Technology. The Information Technology department exists in the state of the art Cecile Ryan Resource Centre where we provide a Help Desk and information service to all students and staff. 

Wireless technology is accessible in every learning space throughout the College.  Computer labs throughout the Middle and Senior School support all core subject areas along with specialist areas.  We also have a fleet of mobile laptop trolleys readily available throughout the College.  Students have access to many different technologies and platforms such laptops, iMac's, iPads and desktops.  Students have access to current industry standard software such as Adobe Suite, AutoCAD and Microsoft Office.
