About LEA

Lutheran Education Australia represents the Lutheran schools and early childhood centres of the Lutheran Church of Australia

LEA vision  

Lutheran Education Australia (LEA) is committed to the mission and ministry of the Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) through supporting quality, Christ centred education.  It operates on behalf of the LCA in partnership with schools and regions in pursuit of this vision.



Our history

The long tradition of Lutheran schooling has been part of this country's history.  Lutherans have operated schools in Australia since 1839.  Currently there are Lutheran schools located in every state and territory of Australia except the ACT.  The church operates early childhood centres as well.


Lutheran Church of Australia

The Lutheran church has been in Australia and New Zealand for more than 175 years. In the 1830s small groups of Lutherans emigrated in search of religious freedom. They settled mainly in rural areas in various parts of the country. Today the Lutheran church is made up of people from rural and urban areas and many different cultural backgrounds
