Why The Academy?

40% of students are currently disengaged in their school*.

40% of students are currently disengaged in their school*.  It’s a worrying figure, but what is being done to fix it? Not much. The education system has hardly evolved in the last 50 years and traditional teaching methods remain the norm for every student, with minimal regard to the individual and how they learn.

You wouldn’t call a fish a failure, just because it can’t climb a tree, right?

Three years ago, The Academy set out to fix the system and bring a modern, effective way of learning to Australia’s young adults.
