Online Students Learn with Help from the World's Best


It’s school but not as you know it

Online Distance Education School is a new phenomena in Australia. Students ‘attend’ classes online, away from the Sydney school campus.

This online mode of school offers students a truly unique alternative to the regular school campus experience.

This option has proven popular. The Australian Christian College Group is the largest independent online school in Australia.

Online students work with their peers throughout New South Wales, sharing their opinions and reflecting on what they have learned in class discussions. They complete assessment tasks appropriate to the subjects, including exams, essays and multimedia projects.

Primary and high school students also have the opportunity to build friendships with students their age and discuss common interests outside of school. The online student community is vibrant, active and positive with lots of talk on things like computer games, sports, TV shows, movies, books and much more.

Online School Factsheet


Learn from anywhere at anytime

With online school, students can learn at anytime from anywhere. It’s portable, flexible and affordable.

Online learning allows a student to progress at their own pace within a term. No more being forced to move forward in a topic before understanding it nor being held back when other students don’t understand something. Students can learn online at their own pace and at a time of day that suits.

Having said that, students cannot fall behind. They’re required to submit work following the due dates in their assessment schedule - just the same as regular school.

Our modular online courses allow you to learn when the time is right for you. Believe it or not, the most popular time for our students to learn is on Sunday afternoon. Over one third of our students start learning before 7:00AM and one third of our students start learning after 7:00PM.

Online students are diverse

Online students are very diverse because online school suits a wide variety of learners.

Some primary and high school students thrive online as they escape frustrations with distractions, commuting times, unstable friendships and wasted time during school hours. Others have survived bullying and appreciate the respite online school provides. Students with learning disabilities such as ADHD, auditory processing problems, autism and dyslexia benefit from the self-paced nature of online school. Some have chosen online while pursuing a sporting or performing arts career. Anxiety is sadly on the rise. Anxiety levels drop when learning online from home.

Students who live in remote areas often don’t have many local schools and boarding school is expensive. Online distance education school provides a legitimate option to these isolated families while building family connectedness.

Face-to-face residential days

It is a mandatory NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) condition of enrolment in Online School that a minimum of 15 days face-to-face learning occurs each year, plus any additional mandatory practical and examination days.

Residential days are a fantastic opportunity to experience activities and community that may not be possible online. These are typically week-long day-school-type events where students gather from across the state to meet with teachers and classmates.

A school sports uniform, along with a dress code and behavioural expectations that are consistent with school standards, are essential parts of residential days.
