Why: We believe every student should positively connect with their education and
live a life they love.
How: We do this by helping students better understand who they are, define the future they want, and prepare them to succeed in it.
What: Year 11 &12 Passion based school
45% of kids identify as disengaged at school - Australian Journal of Teacher Education
The Academy has developed an education model that engages students with their education by aligning it to their passion (AFL).
The programme places particular focus on emotional intelligence, resilience and critical thinking required in a high-performance environment preparing students for the future, not the past.
At The Academy, 100% of students are motivated for success. That’s because they can finally focus on their passion and the future they want.
Research, life experience and industry consultation has allowed The Academy to design a contextualised curriculum based on the VCAL Certificate (Year 11 & 12). Students gain relevant education skills and knowledge needed both on and off the field.
The Academy High-Performance Program is embedded into the students week through the practical application of their strength and conditioning training programs and their recovery and regeneration program including access to weekly massage therapy.
Students also participate in weekly theory lessons including elite mindset, game day approach, creating team culture, game plan application, resilience and self-belief.
