Features of secondary education in Australia

The school system here is strictly controlled by the authorities: 70% of educational institutions are state-owned, so if the goal is to find the best boarding schools in Australia for children and schoolchildren, you will need to search among 30% of private institutions. Australian public schools generally cannot offer boarding school education at all, only afternoon classes. As far as private ones are concerned, many of them work as boarding schools. 

In Australia, today, there are about 10,000 institutions of secondary education, and private boarding schools are recognized as more prestigious, elite. The quality of teaching, basic principles and programs are equally high with the state. schools level, and the distinctive advantages are an individual approach to each student and a powerful material base of classes. When wondering which Australian school is best for a child, there are 2 factors to consider: the gender policy of the institution and the language issue. Based on gender, boarding schools in Australia are divided into 3 types:

  • co-educational;
  • for girls;
  • for boys.

Regarding the language issue: when entering a private private school, IELTS (minimum 5) or TOEFL (minimum 500) certificates will be required. Some guest houses have special language courses where you can improve your English before the start of studying. If you don’t have time to attend preparatory language lessons, do not worry: this will not be an obstacle to learning here. For foreign students, weekly (twice or thrice, depending on the level of knowledge) during the first academic semester, additional English lessons are held. If you decide to attend a specialized language summer school, you should expect costs from 3500AUD to 13500AUD depending on the duration, living conditions and meals.
