The All Saints International Centre is a registered ELICOS college.
Each year All Saints Anglican School welcomes a number of students from abroad to study for one semester (two terms), three terms or one academic year (four terms) as a high school student in Australia. Programmes start in January, April and July of each year. Students attend mainstream high school classes daily and are involved in the co-curricular and club life of the School. English language support is also provided throughout the year if required.
Students should be at least 15 years of age and have attained above average academic results in their home country. Students must also possess at least an intermediate to upper- immediate level of English language proficiency.
All Saints will arrange a Homestay family in the local area. International Centre staff are available to counsel and assist students throughout the year. Students from France, Belgium, Germany, Japan and Brazil have participated in this programme previously. Students select a range of subjects; however, a student may not graduate under the Queensland system of Education after undertaking this programme. At the end of your experience period you will receive a School report and a certificate confirming that you have lived and studied at All Saints.

This course is designed as intensive preparation for Australian High School entry. The course runs for a maximum of 40 weeks in which time the students will cover such areas as:
Students are required to wear the same uniform as the local mainstream students of their year level. They must attend whole School assemblies and meetings, and have the opportunity to trial for mainstream School sporting teams.
Should students have previously learned a musical instrument, they are encouraged to continue private music tuition at the School and may audition for various School orchestras and musical ensembles.
All teachers are highly qualified educators with special training in TESOL (Teaching of English as Second or Other Language) and have many years of combined experience working with overseas students. Most staff at the International Centre are proficient in a language other than English.
The International Centre has a number of specialised international student administration and professional counselling staff available to deal with all student needs and enquiries.
