Nazareth Academies: Development Through Learning at the Highest Level
At Nazareth, students are at the centre of all programs and are encouraged to nurture their God-given talents in their areas of interest. In addition to our wide array of extra-curricular opportunities, we offer specialist academies that span various learning areas, including sports and the arts.
Nazareth Academies focus on developing athletic potential towards the elite level whilst maintaining and supporting performance in academic studies. Students receive quality mentoring and feedback on their skill training, physical preparation, performance and personal development. These programs are conducted by highly experienced and credentialed coaches in partnership with the relevant State Organisations.
In Years 7-10, we operate elite sports academies for Football (Soccer), Netball, Basketball, AFL and AFLW. Directors include Mr Cassio Oliveira (former Adelaide United player), Ms Alice Johnswood (Garville Netball Director), and Mr Alex Starling (NBL1 player).
Academy programs also run in Years 7 and 9 for Dance, Music and Drama.
Nazareth academies have assisted our students in making state and national teams, achieving personal bests and winning championships. They have also provided pathways to employment and professional pathways post-school, including the NBL and A-League men’s soccer.
