    Our private schools serve primary, secondary and high school aged children and families throughout Sydney. We believe in nurturing for today, learning for tomorrow and character for eternity.

    The Adventist Independent School system is a worldwide network of quality Christian schools, colleges and universities. The system has been operating for over a century and is now one of the largest protestant independent school systems in the world.

    It is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and the system and the schools within it support and exceed regulatory standards of education. The schools have developed an enviable reputation for a quality, well-rounded education both locally and internationally.

    Quality Christian Education

    At the heart of Adventist education is a belief that children achieve true growth when their mental, physical and spiritual needs are met. Committed to making quality Christian education accessible to everyone, each Adventist school is founded on Christian principles and welcomes students from all religious and cultural backgrounds.

    The schools are comprehensive, co-educational schools offering a range of facilities and programs to a range of age groups. Each school has its own individual programs based on the core philosophies of the Adventist education system. To find out more about individual school programs and facilities visit the school’s website.
