Adelaide International School (AIS) provides a quality learning pathway for international and Australian students who aspire to complete their primary and/or secondary school education in Adelaide in preparation for enrolment at an Australian university or other tertiary education institution.

The key cornerstones of the AIS program are ‘English for Academic Purposes’ courses for Primary and Secondary School students that provide them with the necessary skills and confidence to be successful in mainstream classes in Adelaide schools. These are registered ELICOS (English Language for Intensive Course Overseas Students) courses.

Staff at AIS understand that young people who have newly arrived in Australia require a school environment that matches their learning needs while providing suitable academic challenges for them within a caring, supportive educational setting. Regular communication with parents helps to assure families that the students at AIS receive the support they need.

The central location of AIS, in the heart of the city of Adelaide, provides easy transport access to students wherever they may live in Adelaide. Our location also allows the city of Adelaide to become part of the learning environment for AIS, assisting students to better understand the unique culture of this city and country.

Adelaide International School is a member of an Alliance of Independent Schools in Adelaide (AISA), which allows graduates of the ELICOS program to move to established and highly regarded Independent Schools throughout Adelaide. Alternatively, students may choose to stay at AIS to undertake a South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) course that specialises in Business Education.

The Adelaide International School program provides students with the confidence needed to move forward in their lives, endowing them with skills for their future and assisting them to adapt to an increasingly globalised world.
