Kalkaringi CEC, serving the twin communities of Kalkaringi and Daguragu, has a student enrolment of around 130 students from Pre-school to Year 12.

Although a school presence has been in the community for decades, the school has been at the current site since 1976.

Kalkaringi CEC, 450km southwest of Katherine, has been a leader in many fields of Indigenous and remote schooling, particularly in secondary education.

In 2003 it became the first community school to have students graduate from Year 12. All four of the pioneering students gained a TER score and entered university courses throughout Australia in 2004.

Kalkaringi has also received numerous national awards, including two National Awards for Quality Schools in 2003; a top 10 placement in The Australian newspaper's Best Schools 2003 Award; and a High Commendation in the 2004 Dare to Lead Awards for quality Indigenous education.
