Information For Parents

Within existing legislative requirements, independent schools and systems within the sector are autonomous in their operations.

The Northern Territory's Independent schools increase choice for the education of your children by providing a range of different philosophies, programs and educational opportunities. The diversity of the sector is evident with members coming from systems such as NT Christian Schools and Lutheran Education System as well as stand alone Independent schools and a number of Indigenous schools. This diversity matches the diverse range of circumstances that families in the Northern Territory experience.  

Independent schools in the Northern Territory include:

  • Non-denominational Independent schools
  • Schools affiliated with the Uniting Church and the Lutheran Church
  • Non-denominational Christian schools
  • Steiner schools
  • Indigenous community schools

 The AISNT encourages you to use the School Finder pages and links on this website to assist you in making the right choice for your children's education.
