The Kilmore International School (TKIS) was established in 1989 as an independent, non–denominational and co-educational boarding and day school for academically motivated students. Classes are offered from Years 3 to 12 with boarding available from Year 7. TKIS specialises in teaching the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB). This program has an internationally recognised track record of facilitating entrance to university courses around the world and of preparing students for completion of those university courses with high levels of achievement.
At TKIS we are committed to the development of outstanding thinkers who are able to live life to the fullest as global citizens. In the first instance, we provide a comprehensive program of high level instruction, including additional tutorials. This is complemented by a wide range of cultural, social and sporting experiences and these combine to provide an enriched educational experience, in a safe rural environment.
We believe that a young person grows best within a caring and close-knit community that has a truly international outlook. By working in close collaboration with parents we strive to realise their dreams for their children and to open the doors to each student’s future.
We regard academic excellence as the key to enhanced life opportunities and access to universities of first choice around the world as the natural extension of our program. Students here can benefit from contact with our graduates at Oxford University, Cambridge, Yale, UCLA, The University of Melbourne, University of New South Wales and other highly sought after international universities. For graduates who choose to continue their studies in Australia, we provide a strong link with The University of Melbourne, through the Melbourne Schools Partnership International, as well as with The Australian National University and other Australian universities.
