What is ConnectEd?

Supported by online resources, ConnectEd that offers both Middle and Senior School pathways to students, who for a variety of reasons, such as experiencing severe anxiety and depression, are unable to attend traditional campus settings. These students may be housebound and need an alternative to mainstream education that allows them to learn in a safe environment and help them on their journey to re-engage back into the community.

How does the program work?

Fast forward from 2002, with the contribution of an engaging church community, sound education and therapeutic support, Alta-1 now has over 700 students enrolled in WA and over 50 students in QLD. These students were once considered at-risk of not making a successful transition through traditional main-stream schooling.

Students meet with their chaplain for at least two hours every week and work through the Personal Recovery and Community Building course together. This specially designed course is integral to assist students to deal with and resolve significant barriers in their life. When students engage with this process, they build their confidence and are able to experience significant self-transformation and gain the life skills they need to grow and succeed in life.
