The Academy is a different kind of school. Using an approach that steers away from outdated methods, we’re preparing Australia’s boys for a future that’s built on their passion.
The curriculum at The Academy is tailored in a way that allows students to take a proactive approach to their education. Designed for more practical learners (largely athletes), we’re removing the stigma associated with VCAL and proving that a real-world education is the key to success.
The curriculum is based on The Academy’s 3 P’s of Holistic Education: Personal, Passion & Professional.
The Academy program is delivered over 3 phases: Discovery, Growth & Launch Pad.
Using The Academy’s learning and assessment material, GOTAFE trainers provide students for Essendon & Wangaratta with VCAL and VET training and assessment, issuing nationally accredited certification on completion. Find out more here.
Students undertake a learning structure environment that’s more closely linked to university or TAFE to prepare them for further study. They’ll be involved in face-to-face and online workshops and lectures throughout the two years, as well as three work placements.
