School Education in Australia
The school education system in Australia provides a high quality learning program to school aged students. The school program emphasises developing a students academic knowledge, personal characteristics and social communication skills. After students complete 12 years primary and secondary school study, they can receive the High School Certificate issued by the State Government in Australia. This certificate is recognised by all tertiary institutes in Australia and by many institutes around the world.
Overseas students who study high school in Australia can learn new knowledge by using English language and can also understand teaching approaches and culture found in Australia. This leads them to continue their study in the future.

The school education in Australia is a 13 years compulsory system that starts with a preparatory year followed by 12 years of primary and secondary school. In some states (NSW, Victoria, ACT), secondary high school program starts from Year 7 to Year 10 for 4 years and senior secondary program includes Year 11 and 12 for 2 years. But in Queensland, Western Australia, Northern Australia and South Australia, secondary high school starts from Year 8.

Government and Private Schools
There are two broad categories of schools in Australia - government based and private owned schools. Both of these schools accept international students. Government owned secondary schools are funded by local government; private secondary schools are funded by private sectors and some of them have a religious affiliation. Most secondary schools are full-time day schools, but there also some boarding schools run by the private sector.
The school year is divided into four terms and runs from late January/early February until December for most secondary schools. There is a short holiday between each terms and a longer summer holiday in December and January. Students attend school from Monday to Friday each week. School hours vary slightly across Australia but are generally from 9.00 am to 3.30 pm each school day.
