Principal's Message


Hello and a warm welcome to our website.

I trust the range of information available can provide you with an insight as to how Tatachilla can contribute to the academic, social and spiritual growth of your child.  

We are an R-12 coeducational Christian school, located in McLaren Vale on the southern fringe of Adelaide, South Australia. The College provides a comprehensive and rigorous academic curriculum, with a particular focus on the performing arts and environmental education. Pastoral care, built on Christian foundations, is integral to College life.

We have dedicated and professional staff who work collaboratively to maximise the potential of every student. Having won national awards for our Performing Arts program, the College prides itself on creating high quality productions that involve students from R-12 as well as members of the local community.

Students grow through extra-curricular activities including an extensive outdoor education program, cultural tours, and opportunities to travel interstate and internationally. Students are involved in over 40 different sports through the state knock-out competition, along with a rigorous physical education program running through all year levels from R-12.

Tatachilla Lutheran College has much to offer its students and their families. Structured as three distinct sub schools, the College offers a seamless pathway from Reception to school-leaving.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you are called upon to make as a parent. Tatachilla Lutheran College is worthy of your serious consideration, and I welcome your interest in our exciting and progressive College.

Further information including a Prospectus can be obtained through the Enrolments Registrar, or via the electronic form on our website.
