Members of ISQ benefit from a wide range of services created specifically to meet their unique needs:

  • a voice to governments on sector issues 
  • services and advice to support schools to achieve excellent student outcomes
  • access to professional learning opportunities
  • advantages through group schemes and agreements
  • advice and assistance regarding financial support.

Membership is open to all accredited Queensland independent schools. Schools pay an annual subscription for services provided. Read more about ISQ's membership benefits.
