School Registration and Accreditation

AISNSW provides a wide range of services and support for schools in the area of school registration and accreditation.

Registration is an independent school’s license to operate. In addition, secondary schools may also have accreditation for the RoSA and/or HSC to enable students to receive these NSW credentials.

NESA’s Registered and Accredited Individual Non-Government Schools (NSW) Manual details the requirements for registration and accreditation.
