Is your child achieving excellent results, a passionate musician or performer? Are they an athlete or leader looking to grow their skills? If your child is doing well at school, it’s natural for parents to look at ways to provide their children with as much potential for growth as possible. This opportunity can often be achieved with a scholarship.

What opportunities can a Pacific Scholarship provide?
Pacific Lutheran College has a tradition of providing a rich education for students to create a well-rounded life. The school is excited to offer expanded opportunities to maximise potential for students.
The specialist programs on offer include:
- Pacific Plus is a contemporary approach to meeting the needs of highly able Middle College students. The Teaching for Understanding pedagogical framework, underpinned by the PERMA model of positive psychology, forms the basis of Pacific Plus. Learning experiences are designed to foster the attitudes and dispositions of intellectual character in highly able students. With an acknowledgement that their learning needs can differ from those of other students in adolescence.
- Pacific Developing Athletes Program supports highly engaged and talented athletes who are involved in competitive school sport and participate in QSS representative pathways. The program includes access to USC’s High Performance strength and conditioning program.
Young people can also explore and enhance strengths in the Visual and Performing Arts, and STEM through unique curriculum offerings and exciting performance opportunities. Pacific offers a vibrant Music Program that includes high-quality ensembles and even a marching band.
Involvement in competitions such as the Da Vinci Decathlon, Future Problem Solving and Robotics opens the door to national and international representation.
Pacific creates a synergy between Lutheran theology and positive psychology, offering intentional programs to grow wellbeing and capability.
