                            Alliance Overview
  The Adelaide Independent Schools Alliance (AISA) consists of a group of premier
  Adelaide non-government schools who collaborate in promo�ng South Australia
  as an educa�on des�na�on for overseas students.

  AISA schools understand the need for a holis�c approach to student recruitment
  and recognise that support for the welfare of a student extends beyond the
  ini�al enrolment period. It can be daun�ng to arrive in an English-speaking
  country equipped with limited language skills and possessing only a par�al
  awareness of the local culture. This is true for all visitors, but it is par�cularly
  true for young, school-aged students.

  AISA recognises the challenges faced by interna�onal students who want to have
  a successful transi�on into their Adelaide school and so AISA uses a broad
  induc�on process from the �me they first arrive in Adelaide.

  At the core of the Alliance model is a cost-effec�ve program through which
  students become informed and prepared for their life in a new city.

  As a part of their transi�on, each student will undertake a comprehensive
  assessment of their English language skills. The results of this test will assist in
  the development of a personalised learning plan to help them meet the entry
  requirements of the Alliance schools.

                      About South Australia

       ADELAIDE
      Adelaide is known as the educa�on paradise of Australia, providing a quiet, safe and convenient environment for interna�onal
      students to learn and socialise with other like-minded students from around the world. It is also one of the least expensive capital
      ci�es in Australia.

      Adelaide has over 170 years of delivering educa�onal excellence specialising in helping individuals fulfil their poten�al both
      academically and professionally.

      Adelaide has a proud reputa�on for being the home of a number of Nobel Laureates and Rhodes Scholars including:

      •Sir William Henry Bragg for his work in physics

      •Sir Howard Walter Florey known for his role in extrac�ng the lifesaving penicillin

      •J Robin Warren for discovering the role that the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori plays in the development of stomach ulcers.

      Adelaide is home to universi�es such as the University of South Australia, University of Adelaide and Flinders University.
      Addi�onally, a couple of the world's top universi�es - Carnegie Mellon University and University College London - now operate
      local campuses.

      Adelaide's educa�on system is highly valued by students of all ages and academic levels, offering primary and secondary school
      educa�on, voca�onal educa�on, language schools and other higher educa�onal ins�tu�ons. Studying in Adelaide will help you
      achieve your dreams as you move towards a bright future.

      Adelaide is not only the educa�onal capital but is consistently ranked 5th by the Economist Intelligence unit as one of the ‘World's
      Most Liveable Ci�es' and one of the top ten 'Tourist Ci�es in the World'.

As a parent, I know that making decisions about
our children's educa�on can be difficult. We want
them to receive an excep�onal educa�on in a safe
and caring environment.

We want them to be challenged, to learn
independence, and to thrive as they take each
step closer to adulthood. And we want them to
have the best possible chance of success in their
future careers.

Adelaide Interna�onal School (AIS) provides a quality learning pathway for interna�onal and Australian students who
aspire to complete their primary and/or secondary school educa�on in Adelaide in prepara�on for enrolment at an
Australian university or other ter�ary educa�on ins�tu�on.

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, suppor�ve
educa�onal se�ng. Regular communica�on with parents helps to assure families that the students at AIS receive the
support they need.

The central loca�on of AIS, in the heart of the city of Adelaide, provides easy transport access to students wherever they
may live in Adelaide. Our loca�on also allows the city of Adelaide to become part of the learning environment for AIS,
assis�ng students to be�er understand the unique culture of this city and country.

Adelaide Interna�onal School is a member of AISA which allows graduates of the ELICOS program to move to established
and highly regarded Non-government schools throughout Adelaide. Alterna�vely, students may choose to stay at AIS to
undertake a South Australian Cer�ficate of Educa�on (SACE) course that specialises in Business Educa�on.

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

Founded 125 years ago, St Peter's Girls' School is a prestigious early learners to Year 12 Anglican and International

Wilderness School is a highly regarded, pres�gious day and boarding school for girls. We are proudly an academic school
and jus�fiably ambi�ous for our girls.

Our girls' commitment to learning across a range of academic subjects is consistently evident in their outstanding
achievements year a�er year. These outcomes are a tes�mony to the wonderful opportuni�es offered to our girls and to
the dedica�on and professionalism of their teachers.

Wilderness School was founded in the belief for unlimited kindness in rela�onships, joy in learning, a spirit of humility
and the balance between seeking individual excellence and generous service to the community. These values guide
every part of Wilderness School's culture, rela�onships, teaching and learning programs. We aim to prepare girls for
successful par�cipa�on in a society in which knowledge is a key resource and in an economy which is becoming
increasingly globalised.

Developing confidence, independence and resilience, where our young women are able to respect others and work
collabora�vely are key capabili�es for the 21st century. Each day as we walk alongside our girls, they learn about the
world and their place in it. It is important that we engage them in courageous conversa�ons and that we challenge them
to be bold and brave.

Intercultural sensi�vity and competence and responsible ci�zenship are also important factors in their future.

At Wilderness, we welcome and value the contribu�on our interna�onal students bring to the School community and
respect their courage as learners in their second language. At Wilderness, we are dedicated to providing each individual
girl with a firm founda�on and inspira�on for a challenging, demanding and fulfilling life.
