St Mark’s is a systemic Lutheran school located in the growing Adelaide Hills town of Mount Barker. In harmony with its Lutheran ethos, St Mark’s places great value on its purpose to inspire students and equip them with the knowledge and life skills to create a bright future for themselves and our community.

At St Mark’s we adopt a holistic approach to learning where individual student needs are developed through quality educational and pastoral care programs.

Areas of subject specialisation with specialist teachers include two weekly Physical Education lessons and weekly German and Music lessons. Our Library and school-provided technology are integrated into the classroom learning program. Learning beyond the classroom occurs through an outdoor education program, social justice initiatives, sporting carnivals and community events.
