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.
As Academy girls emerge from Year 7’s immersive experiences, they enter Year 8 and consolidate their new friendships and learning pathways. With a focus on STEAM subjects and co-curricular opportunities, we guide students through a range of academic and social investigations based on inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. In Year 8, our students also begin using Melbourne’s best learning and cultural centres, like the NGV, to synthesise their developing curiosity.
