The Association of Independent Schools of the ACT (AISACT) represents all seventeen independent schools in the ACT.

Independent schooling has a long and proud history of education in Canberra, starting in the 1920s prior to the opening of (Old) Parliament House. Today our schools educate over 13,700 students in schools ranging in sizes from 1650 to 17 students. One in five ACT Kindergarten – Year 12 students attends an independent school, and combined the non-government sector (that is, Independent and Catholic Education Office schools) educates forty-three percent of students in the ACT – nearly ten percent above the national average.

AISACT represents and coordinates the views of our member schools to government, media and in the wider education sector. We provide a range of services to our schools, including Australian Government and ACT Government targeted programs, with the Association being represented on over fifty local and national committees, boards, reference and advisory groups.

Each ACT independent school is separate and autonomous and governed by its own school board. AISACT does not operate as a system authority, but brings together the collective views of our schools. We are a member of the Independent Schools’ Council of Australia (ISCA), which represents the Associations of Independent Schools in each State and Territory of Australia at a national and international level.
