Education in South Australia is primarily the responsibility of the South Australian Government.

Early Childhood Education

Before starting school, children attend child care, or kindergarten (pre school). This is typically between the ages of three to five.

School Education

Schooling in South Australia has two tiers, primary school and high school (secondary school). Primary school ranges from reception to grade 7 (5 to 12 years old), and high school covers ages 13–18. High school students in Australia are eligible to complete the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

Schools are run by the government (public schools), or by private concerns (private schools). The majority of private schools are run by churches. Public education is free, and while government funding is provided to private schools, parents must generally pay additional fees for their child's attendance at school.

In South Australia it is compulsory for children to be enrolled school by their sixth birthday. All people under the age of 17 are required to participate in full-time schooling, training or work for at least 25 hours per week.[1] Under the Education Act of South Australia, parents and guardians are responsible for the regular attendance of all children in their care between the ages of 6 and 16 years.[2]
