Welcome to Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy

"Cape York Academy is determined to ensure that our younger generations achieve their full potential, talent and creativity and have the confidence and capacity for hard work so that they can orbit between two worlds and enjoy the best of both.” - Noel Pearson, Chairman, Cape York Academy

The Cape York Academy ('The Academy') is part of the Good to Great Schools Australia network and the premier showcase of their comprehensive 5C education reform model. The Academy is led by an independent board chaired by education reformer and Indigenous leader, Noel Pearson. 

The Academy operates two state primary schools in Coen and Hope Vale through a unique partnership with Education Queensland. Our vision is to deliver ‘best of both worlds’ educational opportunities to our students to support their bicultural identity while preparing them to succeed in high-quality secondary boarding schools.
