About the schools list

National education initiatives and a number of online education services rely on a current and accurate list of schools in Australia. In order to operate, schools must be registered with the respective school registration authority in each state or territory. ACARA has obtained the list from all 14 school registration authorities in Australia in order to create the Australian Schools List. This list provides an update of all schools and campuses in Australia. It also includes school location, school type and school sector attributes.

The ASL was last updated on 9 May 2024 to reflect Term 2 - 2024.
