Anglican Schools Australia (ASA) is a network of the General Synod of the Anglican Church of Australia and includes several of the oldest schools in Australia as well as many recently established schools. ASA has both single sex and co-educational schools as members.
Inspired by Christ, our core purpose is to support and serve Anglican schools in fulfilling their Christian Mission.
We operate by Gospel Values, emphasising:
ASA is led by a national Management Committee, comprising school principals, educational administrators and school chaplains. All states and the ACT are represented on the Committee.
One of our objectives is to 'achieve a stronger influence with government in matters affecting Anglican schools'. ASA advocates on behalf of Anglican schools with respect to key issues such as independent school funding, educationasl disadvantage, curriculum and chaplaincy in schools.
Our annual conference brings together Church leaders, school governors and educational administrators, principals, chaplains, senior staff and religious studies teachers to celebrate our schools and listen to leading speakers and thinkers on religious and educational issues.
