Diversity is one of the key strengths of Queensland’s independent schooling sector. ISQ represents a wide range of schools, many of which are providing an education in a school environment consistent with their religious beliefs and convictions. Of ISQ’s 230 member schools, 65% have a specific religious affiliation. Some of these schools are affiliated with Christian denominations such as Anglican, Catholic, Lutheran, Uniting Church, Presbyterian or Seventh Day Adventist. Others are non-denominational Christian schools, Islamic schools and Jewish schools.
Many other independent schools, whilst not having a direct religious affiliation, base their philosophy and values on religious beliefs.
