About Us

Cornerstone College, founded in 1990, is an independent co-educational Lutheran Secondary College for Years 7 to 12. Located at Mount Barker in the picturesque Adelaide Hills the College is situated on 16 hectares. The campus provides the latest facilities to best enable today’s learners. Our exceptional approach to learning and wellbeing provides the greatest possible opportunities for your child to flourish.

The College facilities and campus provide a stunning and stimulating learning environment. We have a brand new purpose-built Middle School building, polished, sprung gymnasium, seated arts theatre with state-of-the-art lighting and sound, wetlands and environmental centre, commercial kitchens, AstroTurf tennis courts and a magnificent full size oval. These facilities enable experiential learning of the highest quality.

There is a profound understanding that our exceptional facilities mean little without the nurture, care and expertise of the staff. At Cornerstone, that is what we pride ourselves on, and is what differentiates us from others. Ongoing staff professional development and training is a high priority and an expectation, ensuring that the College continues to provide best practice teaching and learning.

Our motto “Christ our firm foundation” from Ephesians 2:20 underpins all that we do. It is far more than words – it informs how we think, act and behave; proudly servants of God. The promise of love and forgiveness from Jesus Christ motivates all that takes place each day.
