Cape York Girl Academy, QLD
The Cape York Girl Academy is Australia’s first boarding school designed for young mothers and their babies and for girls disengaged from school.
Mothers and their babies live together and learn together, supported by caring staff and surrounded by friends and visiting family.
Girl Academy’s mission is to create effective and confident mothers, happy and assured children and provide young Indigenous women with opportunities for growth and success in every aspect of their lives.
The academy provides a solid education-base that gives young women a skillset to achieve in education, life and work, assisting them to grow into life-long learners.
