ABOUT US

Old School for New Children

What are we?

St George's is an assisted learning centre, providing facilitated educational support for learners with academic, behavioural and emotional needs. We teach a mainstream curriculum in a small, nurturing environment.

Who are we?

We provide a unique learning experience. We take the time to evaluate and recognise each individual’s needs and abilities and guide and support them. At St George's Academy we teach how your child learns.

Why St George's Academy?

A solid foundation is the cornerstone of any strong structure, education being one of the most important.  We strive to give each child a holistic and multi-sensory education in the most formative part of their schooling careers. If the fundamental principles are enforced and understood, the building blocks that will be added over the next decade will ensure your child has the best possible start to a happy and fulfilling school career.

Where are we?

We are situated in Randpark Ridge.
