Online School: The Contemporary Face of Distance Learning
Online School through Australian Christian College Distance Education offers unparalleled flexibility in today's dynamic world. English on the porch, Math in the morning.. Work where it suits you.
School of the Air and Home Schooling laid the groundwork for students learning from wherever they were. Fast forward to today, and we see the emergence of 'online school' - the next generation in the evolution of remote learning. Online school, (also referred to as Distance Education), builds on its core principles while enhancing them with increased interactivity and convenience.
In an 'online school', learning is no longer just about watching lessons. Students actively engage with their teachers, participate in lively discussions with peers, and take exams, all from the convenience of their homes. Think of it as blending the best of traditional schooling with the convenience, practicality and ease of life at home. All tailored to the emergence of this current digital age.

Four Australian Christian Colleges are registered to deliver school fully online, with a fifth (Victoria) currently in the registration phase. Collectively, they are Australia’s largest non-government distance education provider. They provide an online education to students living in Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and Tasmania with appropriate matriculation options upon graduation. We expect Victoria to become registered by the start of the 2024 school year.
Different states impose different eligibility requirements for online enrolments, and so it’s important to check your child’s eligibility with the distance education providers in your state.
