"How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in Unity" Psalm 133:1
Built on the long standing reputation of the Murray Bridge Lutheran School (now the site of the current Junior School), Unity College became the first R-12 Lutheran School to be established in South Australia in 2001.
The Murray Bridge Lutheran School opened in 1978 with 135 students and 5 staff. With steady growth, the community saw a need for a Lutheran Secondary College to be established in Murray Bridge and in 1995 an application to extend to Year 10 was approved.
Year 8 commenced in 1997 and the Murray Bridge Lutheran School was officially renamed Unity College. Approval to extend to Year 11 and 12 was received in 1999 and Unity's first class of Year 12s graduated in 2001.
Since these humble beginnings, Unity College has continued its progressive expansion through student numbers, building projects and curriculum development with a student body of over 500 students from Reception to Year 12, specialist facilities and dedicated staff - reinforcing our focus of 'students first'.
In 2018, Unity College is celebrating 40 years of Lutheran Education in the Murraylands.
