Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (Inc.)
As a sector independent schools are diverse in nature, they provide for students of all abilities-including an increasing number of students with special needs-from all social and ethnic backgrounds. They provide quality schooling for a wide range of communities, including some of Western Australia’s most remote and disadvantaged Indigenous communities, communities in regional towns and cities and diverse communities in Perth. Many independent schools espouse a religious or values-based education, while others promote a particular educational philosophy. Membership of the Association is open to independent schools which are registered by the State Government and are not for profit. The educational aims, the philosophy of the school and its policies and practices must be consistent with those of the Association as outlined in its Vision and Mission statements.
