What we do​

At The School of Astronomy & Astrophysics we are committed to facilitating each student reaching their maximum potential. Our students are extended in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subject areas of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Coding beginning 2017. We have created a tangible nexus between Student, Teacher and Academic Professionals with our global network of collaborative partners. Making use of our innovative online platform, we challenge every student by delivering educational content up to university level.

Complete Online High School Subjects

TSAA is not a textbook. Online courses typically are valuable as a resource to a teacher or other educational provider. Our courses provide everything that a traditional classroom learning experience would, except all information is available online, the subject is self-paced and our multi-faced student support systems are integrated right into the course materials. For more information about our course delivery, view the course flyer.

Student Involvement

Students in attendance of our Annual Student Astro Conference have the opportunity to network with professional academics in astronomy. During the weeklong conference, students engage in research projects, lectures and partake in tours of our partner institutions.

Free Resources for Secondary School Teachers

Yr 10 Science teachers can contact us for information about our Yr 10 astronomy which uses our innovative online delivery system.
