Hester Hornbrook Academy - VCAL for young mums

  1. About this service

    The Hester Hornbrook Academy, formerly Melbourne Academy, is an Independent school run by Melbourne City Mission. 

    It was established to provide supportive, flexible education to reconnect young people with schooling, which is often the most important step in getting them back on track. Building on the evidence of what works, we provide both social and education supports to help people achieve their goals.

    The young mums VCAL program is based in Braybrook.  Young mums have the chance to continue their education after having a baby - babies attend classes with their mother. This class offers Foundation, Intermediate and Senior VCAL. Students can also be pregnant and can bring a baby with them to class when they are ready to return to learning.
