Kindergarten to Year 13

Spectrum Academy offers a student centred model of learning, project based learning, learning to learn modules, study smart techniques and parent education. 


Our year is divided into 5 'terms', called Learning Cycles, with 7 weeks of learning, one week of flexi-time* and one week holiday, catch up time or own choice time.  These shorter learning cycles ensures students stay focused and fresh throughout the year to maximise the learning.

*Flexi-time will include learning celebrations, self and learning coach led evaluations, extra curricular activities, electives,  and passion projects presentations. 


Learning Coaches work both 1:1 and in small groups (1:5) with students via our online platform, provide video tutorials, project based learning tasks and activities for Learning Partners (Parents) to use and support the learning at home. Learning Coaches are available through each day to help, support and guide.


Here is a sample of a weekly timetable for Years 1-10:
