A specialist university preparation school offering Years 5 to 12.
The Kilmore International School (TKIS) is an independent, non-denominational, co-educational boarding and day school for academically motivated students. Classes are offered from Years 5 to 12 with boarding available from Year 7.
The School is totally committed to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP), with all students ultimately being prepared to sit for the full IBDP in Years 11 and 12. Years 5 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 IBDP in Years 11 and 12. The motto of the school is ‘Excellentia Academica Persequenda’ which literally means ‘The Pursuit of Academic Excellence’. Every student is encouraged to reach his or her maximum personal and academic potential.
The school is located in Kilmore, only 58 kilometres from Melbourne and is well serviced by bus and train. Kilmore is particularly suitable as an educational centre as it does not suffer the social problems that plague larger cities.
Students undertake their studies in a caring and friendly atmosphere in a peaceful country environment under well supervised conditions.
TKIS is extremely proud of its graduate outcomes and is proud to say that 100% of graduates receive at least one university offer every year. Having sent students to top universities throughout the world for many years, and seen them go on to gain highly paid employment in prestigious and demanding professions, we have ample reason to believe in the strength of the IBDP and the opportunities it provides for motivated students.
