Anamarc Educational Institute and Gostudys Education Institute, which are both state-run schools, are set to open in 2019.
The education institutes have been awarded a licence from the government to start teaching in 2019 and it is likely they will be the first state-funded schools to open up in New South Wales in the next decade.
The ANA is Australia’s oldest publicly funded education system and the Gostudiys Educational Institute (GESI) is a separate state-owned school that is part of the Australian Education Union.
The ANAs flagship school, the Royal New School in Newcastle, is set to close by the end of 2021.
However, the ANAs chief executive officer and head of education, Paul Dickson, said in a statement on Friday the two schools were on track to open.
“We expect that both schools will be operational in 2019,” Mr Dickson said.
“The two schools are in a period of great economic uncertainty and will not have the resources to continue to operate as they do today.”
The schools will continue to offer an exceptional educational experience to students from disadvantaged backgrounds and will also serve the local community.
“It is important to note that the two institutions have been accredited by the ANSA (Australian National School Accreditation Association) for more than 20 years.”
Both schools will remain fully funded through the ANSDA (Australian State Schools and Teachers Association) with the exception of costs for their annual and non-annual school functions.
“The ANAS says it will not be making any announcements about the schools until the government certifies them.
