Cape York Australian Aboriginal Academy

Good to Great Schools Australia has a unique and innovative partnership with the Department of Education (DoE) Queensland to deliver the Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy (CYAAA) in two state primary schools in Hope Vale and Coen.
The DoE operates the school campuses like they do for all Queensland state schools, including the employment of all school staff, management of school finances, operations and facilities, and the health, safety and wellbeing of all students and staff.
GGSA provides the education model, which incorporates a strong focus on English, Maths and Science, as well as local language and culture, music, and student and family support. GGSA also supplies experts to provide a full suite of professional support to the entire teaching faculty.
The Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy is part of the Good to Great Schools Australia network and the premier showcase of our full 21st century reform model.

The prospects for Australian children should not be determined by their ethnicity, location or socio-economic status. We seek to equal the playing field for disadvantaged children. We guarantee that any child who enters a classroom that is using effective teaching will learn to read and will progress at a pace that exceeds the national average. 

Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to purchasing readers and resources for students. 

‘This beautiful young girl from our Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy received Direct Instruction as a Prep student. She is now putting together the magical pieces of the reading jigsaw. She is only four years old and on the way to reading by the time she starts her first year of primary school.’
