MOB Academy


The Men of Business Academy is a Senior Secondary School that focuses on empowering young men with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be happy, healthy and successful in life after school.

The MOB Academy caters for boys in Years 11 & 12 who are looking for alternative learning to mainstream schooling. The MOB Academy promotes workforce and career focused education in addition to a formalised health and well-being program. With a streamlined program targeting the development of the key life skills of literacy, numeracy, health, resilience, commitment and respect, we give young men a strong position to ‘feel’ success through the achievement of the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and workplace emersion. Importantly, our young men receive extensive specialised and individualised support to address any barriers to learning and personal development that may hinder their success.

A key strength of the MOB Academy is the existing deep engagement with the community mentors and the business community who have inspired the vision for a school. This large group of members and supporters have consistently provided mentorship to young people in MOB programs together with conducting events and raising significant funds to enable this opportunity. The deliberate integration of the young men with their community is witnessed through work placement opportunities and volunteering at local events providing a complete experience for the young men and their families.

The MOB Academy tailors its educational programs to promote continuous engagement, meet individual student learning needs and interests, focuses heavily on student well-being, whilst exposing students to the essential literacy, numeracy and life skills required to function in today’s society. The MOB Academy has designed the programs to target individual student needs, interests and growth, whilst building student resilience and confidence through a wide range of education programs. This includes optimising the training facilities both on-campus and the neighbouring TAFE College. We nurture existing community partnerships to provide the students with extensive extra-curricular activities such as playing fields, yoga, swimming, gym and the arts.
