Lumen Christi College opened as a Catholic Co-Educational Secondary College, in February 1984 with a Year 8 enrolment of 128 students. This was the culmination of two years work by the Steering Committee and Interim Board of Management who devoted much time and energy to plan not just the building, but the financial and curriculum development of the College too. The first cohort of staff, appointed in June 1983, played a major role in developing the curriculum.

From small beginnings great things can grow. Having opened with 128 Year 8 students in 1984 College numbers have now swelled to over 900. In 2005 the College was granted a permanent six stream entry and in 2010 accepted its first cohort of Year 7 students. The College has over 100 staff members, including full time and part-time teaching staff, administration and support staff.

The initial development of Lumen Christi College was characterised by a sense of commitment, a sense of Mission and a sense of faith amongst staff and Board Members, Archdiocesan and Catholic Education Commission Administrators, parents and students. Their aim was to provide a centre of education aspiring to be of value to its students and related communities. The same spirit permeates the College today as the Lumen  Community strives for excellence in educational standards alongside the personal and spiritual development of our student body.

Much of our history - the detailed curriculum developments, and the vast array of educational opportunities and information about our students are recorded in documents such as our College Annual, the Principal's Annual Report to parents, and on a regular basis, through newsletters and other communication distributed by the College.
