Hills Integrated Lutheran Schools (HILS) is an inclusive and nurturing community of Lutheran schools, providing co-educational primary and secondary schooling in the Adelaide Hills.
Primary schools consist of St Mark's Lutheran School Mt Barker, St Michael's Lutheran Primary School Hanhdorf, Lobethal Lutheran School in Lobethal, and secondary school Cornerstone College Mt Barker.
Together, HILS provide a seamless education experience where students are nurtured and encouraged and a holistic approach to learning is embraced.
Through combining resources HILS offer a greater support to our community of families, students and teachers whilst strengthening the quality of our teaching and learning in Lutheran education.
Our shared location of the Adelaide Hills is the perfect place to raise your family and our shared values and Christian beliefs will always be at the heart of everything we do.
Shared Place, Shared Purpose
We invite you to discover our schools and experience the benefits of
being involved in a caring Christian community.
Students can extend their Lutheran education beyond primary school throughout senior school with entry into Cornerstone College,
ensuring a seamless Lutheran education all within the Adelaide Hills community.
A Caring Environment
HILS provide a warm, caring and nurturing learning environment where individual gifts and differences are respected, and students are empowered to not only recognise these gifts but embrace them. We work with each child to establish their needs, whilst providing pastoral and well-being support throughout their learning journey.
Our schools create a challenging and fun learning environment with a focus on innovation, authenticity, resilience, and emotional growth.
We aim to provide students with an understanding of the Christian faith though our teaching, values and Christian beliefs. We seek to nurture individuals who are aware of their humility, and who contribute with meaning and purpose to the community and wider world.
