The Australian Islamic College Adelaide is an independent school and a member of the South Australian Association of Independent Schools. Our college community began in 1998 and has seen many positive changes over the years. The teachers and staff strive to educate children positively, bringing about a greater awareness of the globalized world we live in. Teachers also aim at guiding students to employ knowledge inflexible and novel ways to develop concepts that they can transfer from the school, to understand the world around them. Most of all, we aim to guide students in developing lifelong intellectual pursuits and achieving success in learning.
The curriculum is currently based on the South Australian Curriculum Framework, covering the eight learning areas of English, Mathematics, The Arts, Design and Technology, Studies of Society and Environment, Health and Physical Education, and Science. Students also study Arabic as a language and learn about the Holy Quran in Quranic Studies and customs in Islamic Studies. We are proud of our results in Year 12, which demonstrates that a school community is working together, encouraging students to become confident in achieving individuals. As a National Curriculum is developed across Australia, the Australian Islamic College Adelaide is preparing teachers, informing parents, and supporting students with changes.
With new buildings being built over the last few years, our college supports vital facilities, enhancing learning for all students. We aspire to prepare students emotionally and socially through our Values Education Program encouraging the 'Nine Values for Australian Schooling' and the four keys to success (Confidence, Organisation, Getting-Along, and Persistence) across our school that aims to guide and support student's values in an Australian / Islamic context.
