The Australian Independent School (AIS) provides a unique and individualised approach to teaching.

We believe each student’s unique potential can be fully attained by advocating personal choice. This is achieved by offering two highly rewarding academic graduation pathways at AIS. The teaching and learning begins in Early Childhood, underpinned by the Australian Early Years Curriculum. In Primary and High School the Australian Curriculum (ACARA) is applied. With its eight learning areas, the Australian Curriculum provides a modern curriculum for every student. The content of learning areas includes seven general capabilities intended to help prepare students to learn, live and work in the 21st century.  Year 11 and 12 students graduate from AIS with a choice between the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP), IB Courses, School Based Program or a Hybrid model. Success in the IB DO ensures seamless progression to leading universities either in Australia or globally.


We also offer Vocational Education & Training (VET) for those students who wish to pursue a pathway that may lie outside of university. Our VET courses engage and challenge students to maximise their individual talents and capabilities for further education, training, and lifelong learning.
