Welcome to NAISA!


NAISA is a formal alliance of associations that represent independent schools in South Africa. NAISA members are national associations of independent schools. A national association is an association which has member schools in more than one province.

The alliance serves the interests of independent schools and facilitates communications with the Department of Education and other bodies on matters of common interest and concern.

The NAISA committee is comprised of mandated representatives of its member associations.

The Alliance is based on the principles of inclusivity and consensus, while at the same time respecting the individual identity of each association and allowing for disassociation. In view of the rapidly changing nature of the independent school sector, the Constitution also allows for flexibility in membership and procedures and enables the full diversity of the sector to be reflected.
