The Hester Hornbrook Academy is a school focused on supporting young people who have experienced education and/or social challenges, disengaged from school and from some of the most disadvantaged areas of Victoria. They help develop students literacy and numeracy skills, successfully complete a secondary school certificate, gain practical project-based skills, pursue their own individual learning goals, and take charge of their future. The Hester Hornbrook Academy combines education and wellbeing support with a teacher and youth worker in every classroom.
