By putting students at the centre of their learning, they take responsibility for their academic growth and are, as a result, better able to contribute to society and to the learning of others.
Transitioning to the Academy shouldn’t disrupt your daughter’s developmental trajectory. In Year 7, we build your daughter’s sense of belonging to our community through activities like the Year 7 Camp, which brings together girls in a team environment that reinforces our vision and values. Our Big Sister/Little Sister program pairs an older Academy girl with your daughter to make sure she has someone who has been there before, someone she trusts, and who can answer her questions.
In Year 8, Academy girls begin to look outward at regional Victoria. A number of field trips and other excursions to places of significance in our state show Academy girls a different way of life as compared to the city. On trips to Ballarat, Hanging Rock, and Healesville Sanctuary, students investigate the natural world, horticulture, and agriculture in order to understand how city and country coexist and cooperate to sustain our lives.

In Year 9, students undertake the cross-curricula Synergy program. During a full term, students learn about sustainable Melbourne through in-depth discussion and actionable outcomes that arise from classes. From our location beside the Carlton Gardens, students have easy access to important learning and cultural centres around the CBD, including Melbourne Museum, the NGV, ACMI, universities, and other historical sites. They use their learnings to design, create, and present a robust case for how combining small individual changes can lead to large, positive effects.
In Year 10, Academy girls will have an appreciation and respect of our holistic environment. They apply their knowledge through careers planning and work experience, as well as selecting complementary subjects that match their interests. This starts them on a pathway towards the positive change they aspire to be. Students also have the opportunity to support traditional learning with educational travel to our sister schools in Italy and Japan, and study tours to France.

In the age of digital disruption, fluidity is the key to the Academy’s Senior School approach. Before Year 11 and Year 12, we encourage Academy girls to think about what they will need in order to up-skill and better traverse the future career market. All students take control of their education by selecting the subjects that will lead them on the pathway they aspire to.
During their Senior School years, we provide academic, wellbeing, and career planning support so that each student can pursue their university, TAFE, apprenticeship, traineeship, or employment pathway.
