Korowa Anglican Girls' School

In Australia, the independent school sector makes up about a third of the private school (non-public, non-government or non-state school) sector. The Catholic school sector makes up the remaining two thirds. The private school sector is 30% of all Australian schools including public, Catholic and government selective schools. See school enrolments, school sector proportion and trends. Unlike catholic schools, independent schools are not affiliated with any church or other agency. Independent schools have highest fees but they have excellent academic performance, better facilities and richer co-curriculum programs. They are generally open entry unlike non-selective public schools which have school zones or catchment. They (parents) have higher social economic background.
