Academies

NASCA Academies

The NASCA Sporting Chance Academies use sport and sports based activities to support and encourage Indigenous youth to stay in school, increase self confidence and create better post school opportunities.

Our Academies are based in South Sydney (Alexandria, Tempe and Marrickville High Schools) and central NSW (Dubbo College South Campus, Dubbo College Delroy Campus, Narromine and Wellington High Schools). Partnering with the schools and program supporters, the main objectives we aim to achieve are:

  • Increasing school attendance and retention rates
  • Strengthening student engagement with school and improving attitudes to schooling
  • Improving general skills such as teamwork, leadership and communication
  • Improving opportunities for post-school pathways
  • Improving the health & well-being of students, including self-esteem and confidence
  • Improving parental & community involvement with the school & their children’s education
  • Promote and support positive learning experiences that foster success
