The Kilmore International School (TKIS) was established in 1989 as an independent, non–denominational and co-educational boarding and day school for academically motivated students. Classes are offered from Years 3 to 12 with boarding available from Year 7.
TKIS is conveniently located in a healthy, rural setting in the town of Kilmore, 58 kilometres north of Melbourne’s CBD. Linked via freeway to both the city and Melbourne Airport, Kilmore is particularly suitable as an educational centre as it does not suffer the social problems that plague larger cities.
The School is totally committed to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, with all students ultimately being prepared to sit for the full IB Diploma in Years 11 and 12. Years 3 to 9 are designed to challenge capable students and to provide special assistance for students in problem areas. Year 10 is designed as a bridging program to specifically prepare students for entry into the IB Diploma in Years 11 and 12.
The School has separate male and female boarding facilities both on and off campus (either close to or adjacent to the school). Boarding is a real home away from home for international, interstate and local students, providing a caring environment in which individual attention is given to the general well-being, academic and personal development of every student.
After school and in the early evenings, students engage in our extensive extra-curricular program, tailored to suit each student’s individual needs. Each weekday evening, students undertake subject tutorials before settling down to supervised study in their dormitories.
The motto of the School - “Excellentia Academica Persequenda” - literally means ‘the pursuit of academic excellence’. Our mission is to encourage each and every student to reach their full academic potential.
