Welcome to ACARA's Principals' Portal

The principals’ preview period has closed and the latest year of data is now published on the My School website.

The Principals’ Portal lets authorised school staff perform the following actions on the My School website:

  1. preview their school's full profile prior to its publication going live
  2. update their school's profile comment 
  3. update their school's URL 
  4. update their school's location 
  5. for Independent schools, update their governing body.
