Top South Australian schools by search results

Concordia College, an independent, coeducational school based in Highgate, topped the list. It is the only school in the top five that offers the opportunity to study the International Baccalaureate, which is likely a major drawcard for students and parents as it is used to gain entry into top-of-the-line universities around the world.

The Hills Christian Community School, Meridian School and Westminster School are also located in Adelaide’s southern suburbs, which left New Port-based Portside Christian College as the sole school from outside that area.

All five schools were coeducational, independent and located in the suburbs of Adelaide, with no rural entries on the list.

Our Compare Schools search function allows users to compare schools from around Australia, filtering by gender, type, proximity, year levels and fee range, along with various extracurriculars like sport, music, drama and after school activities.
