We maintain this positive response with a culture that is aligned with the way young people learn:
I have a different child. A child that enjoys every aspect of school.
All staff at The Academy are carefully selected because they fit the school’s purpose and values. They each have impressive credentials in both their professional and academic career, and have been heavily involved in football for a large portion of their lives. All teaching staff have played football or coached at a VFL or higher level.
Teachers choose to work at The Academy because it enables them to align their passions of football and education. They’re also able to form stronger connections to students because they share the same interests and have led a similar life path.
Disengagement at other schools is largely because teachers struggle to relate to the students, and we’ve been able to eliminate this problem at The Academy. All staff are passionate about personal growth and they relay this to the students.
