A new way
A NEW EDUCATIONAL MODEL
The Youth Inc. Enterprise Academy is Adelaide's newest learning alternative, and is designed specifically for young people aged 17-24 who are looking for something a bit different!
We are formally registered as an independent, senior secondary school*, but that’s as close as we get to a conventional education. We prefer to describe ourselves as a 'studio school' - deliberately small, and entrepreneurial!
We have a different ethos and approach to mainstream schools, with a stronger focus on practical learning, enterprise skills, work, resilience and wellbeing.
Our curriculum is designed to engage young people in learning - using human-centred design principles - that enable our students to achieve formal SACE and VET qualifications in a practical, hands-on kind of way. It is a real-world learning experience that integrates SACE and VET qualifications with project-based learning opportunities in the local community.
Our focus is on helping young people to identify their unique talents, and enabling them to make the most of those talents in the context of a life that matters to them. It's about developing enterprise skills and capabilities for life.
It's school... but different!
