Join the Alliance

Membership of the Alliance opens up opportunities for dialogue and collaboration with a diverse group of educators that represents over 172,000 girls and 17,000 educators in six countries, across Catholic, state, independent and integrated sectors — all sharing a common goal.

The reality of today’s competitive educational environment demands strong factual support for the benefits of a girls’ school education. The Alliance provides its members with the latest research relevant to girls’ education. Our research materials are only available to members and are an invaluable one-stop resource for facts, findings and topical material for educators of girls.

The Alliance welcomes membership applications from girls’ schools in Australasia and Asia.

Membership is school-based and all staff of member school may access the benefits of membership including access to our research and resources, member rates for conferences and events, exclusive partner offers, networking events and more.

Merging with the International Coalition of Girls School

Following the 2022 AGM, Alliance members voted in favour of progressing a merger between the Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australasia and the International Coalition of Girls’ Schools (ICGS).

Coming together as a single organisation for girls’ schools will create a powerful and unparalleled global collaboration. The merger will unite over 500 girls’ schools across 18 countries representing over 300,000 students. The significant synergies of a shared sense of identity, purpose and potential has the ability to set and deliver an ambitious agenda for girls’ schools.

ICGS promises to be an international organisation that delivers the best of both worlds — global knowledge-sharing and connections with the opportunity for inspired innovation, centralised efficiencies, and regional programming and responsiveness.

The merger will allow AGSA to continue to prioritise its regional programming in Australia and New Zealand while creating opportunities for staff and students to engage and collaborate globally.

The merger is expected to be completed by January 2024, following an 18-month transition period.
