It’s school but not as you know it
Online Distance Education is a new phenomena in Australia. Students ‘attend’ classes online, away from the school campus in Albany.
This online mode of school offers primary and high school 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 distance education school in Australia.
Online students work with their peers in Southlands and throughout Western Australia, 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.
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.READ OUR FAQs
Learn from anywhere at anytime
With online distance education, primary and high 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 distance education courses allow you to learn when the time is right for you. Believe it or not, over one third of our students start learning before 7:00am and one third of our students start learning after 7:00pm weekdays.

Diverse Online Distance Education Students
Online distance education 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.
Regardless of your situation, you will appreciate the support provided by a qualified teaching team and the ready-made learning program available through our Online Distance Education School.

ONLINE DISTANCE EDUCATION COURSES
Modelled on university online learning courses
We started by modelling our Online Distance Education School after universities that provide online learning for their students. If you’re familiar with how universities do online learning you’ll be familiar with how Online Distance Education works.
All courses have a clear starting point and end point. Students need to do the lessons in every subject per week to stay on track with their learning.
All courses use video content that is created by our school and also sourced from the best content providers on the internet. The students can pause, rewind and play a lesson until they understand the concept being taught. It’s like replaying school!
Online discussions provide a great opportunity for students to engage with each other. Our teachers ask open-ended questions so students can think carefully about their response and learn to appreciate other students’ point of view.
