About ISV

Independent Schools Victoria is a champion for choice and diversity.

The mission of ISV is clear – to support independent education for the benefit of students and the wider community. We advocate on behalf of our members and promote the importance of independent education.

We champion independent schools as an essential pillar of the school education system, alongside government and Catholic schools. We offer programs, products and services which benefit everyone and which are focussed on building robust civic society.
