ISWA welcomes local and international students from Kindergarten to Year 12. We adhere to the school structure and age requirements of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).

The minimum age of entry is at least 3 years and 6 months before students can be considered for enrolment.

Upon enrolment, students are placed in a year level based upon their previous academic history and their chronological age. Final acceptance and year level placement will be determined following teacher-parent-student interviews regarding social, developmental and academic progress and (if required) internal assessments.
