About us

The Australian Islamic College Adelaide

The Australian Islamic College Adelaide is an independent school and a member of the South Australian Association of Independent Schools. Our college community began in 1998 and has seen many positive changes over the years.
The teachers and staff strive to educate children in a positive way that brings about a greater awareness of the globalised world we live in. Teachers also aim at guiding students to employ knowledge in flexible and novel ways, to develop concepts that they can transfer from school, to understanding the world around them. Most of all we aim to guide students in developing lifelong intellectual pursuits and achieving success in learning.
Currently, curriculum is based on the South Australian Curriculum Framework, covering the eight learning areas of English, Mathematics, The Arts, Design and Technology, Studies of Society and Environment, Health and Physical Education and Science. Students also study Arabic as a language and learn about the Holy Quran in Quranic Studies and customs in Islamic Studies.
We are proud of our results in Year 12 which demonstrate a school community working together, that encourages students to become confident achieving individuals. As a National Curriculum is developed across Australia the Australian Islamic College Adelaide is preparing teachers, informing parents and supporting students with changes.
With new buildings being built over the last few years our college supports strong facilities, that enhances learning for all students. We aspire to prepare students emotionally and socially through our Values Education Program encouraging the 'Nine Values for Australian Schooling' and the four keys to success (Confidence, Organisation, Getting-Along and Persistence) across our school that aims to guide and support student's values in an Australian / Islamic context. We invite you to look through our website and welcome any further questions on education at the Australian Islamic College Adelaide.


I feel proud Ma Sha Allah my children are going to this college where there is no discrimination of race or status, where humanity and modesty are obviously radiant, where there is no bullying and simplicity takes pride. I know there may be some other better schools for worldly education but as one of my friends says isn't it good enough if our children are educating and developing a desire and habit of saying Salah with congregation! Indeed it is good enough. Jazak Allah Khair to all the staff/ board members making efforts to blossom this school even better. May Allah give you huge rewards in this world and the hereafter.

It is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial for Australian Islamic College Adelaide. Over the past 8 years my four children have been attending Australian Islamic College Adelaide and to say they have enjoyed their time there is an understatement. They have thrived in this environment. AICA's wonderful staff make each and every child feels being special and unique whilst providing them with excellent academic skills needed as they make transition from reception to “High School”. This is exactly what I as a parent want for my children. The genuine affection and concern that the staff show to the children make AICA a child’s “home away from home”. I know it is rare to find a place with all these outstanding qualities that's why I can recommend Australian Islamic College Adelaide to friends, family and anyone who wants a wonderful caring and learning environment for their children.

Our daughter has been attending Islamic College Pre-Primary for six months and she absolutely loves it! She would walk herself to School if she was able to. The teachers' friendly, nurturing and professional manner helped her settle into pre-primary school routines quickly. Her skills in interpersonal relationships and communication have developed immensely. She now happily communicates with her peers and shares her wants, needs and frustrations more effectively.
