FOUNDED IN 1986 BY A GROUP OF DEDICATED EDUCATORS, WE ARE
A FRIENDLY, FAMILY-ORIENTED SCHOOL
INDEPENDENT LEARNING STRATEGIES
What sets us apart is the Applied Scholastics Educational Philosophy, taken from the works of Mr. L. Ron Hubbard, which focuses on independent learning and the application of information. It is all very well to learn something for the sake of passing a test, but in the wider world the true measure of your understanding is whether or not you can actually put your studies into use.
Our school takes children from Prep to the threshold of their HSC at Year 10. With the fundamentals of their education firmly in place, and with a true love of learning, our students make their own choices as to the next steps of their educational or career paths. Many decide to go on and complete their HSC at a range of other schools offering Year 11 and Year 12.
The Athena School is a secular school forwarding no religion, but rather teaching acceptance and tolerance of all religions, faiths and creeds, as per the principles of How to Make Good Choices (based on The Way to Happiness by L.Ron Hubbard). We are welcoming to students of all races and are proud of our multicultural school community.
“It takes brilliant imagination to be a teacher, it takes brilliant reasoning power to be happy in this world. If all children were taught to reason as they learned a few facts, they would have what nature intended them to have, a better castle for their defence.” – L. Ron Hubbard
