Financial viability

A registered non-government school must be financially viable.

Under section 47(a1) of the Education Act, a registered non-government school must be financially viable.

Financial viability provides for the school to be administered and achieve the purpose of providing an education for school students whilst remaining financially solvent.

In considering the financial viability of a registered non-government school that is a member of a registration system, NESA will have regard to the same guidelines that apply to an individual registered non-government school that are detailed in the NESA Registered and Accredited Individual Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual.
