LIKE SHAKIRA’S HIPS, OUR COOKIES’ RESULTS DON’T LIE.
What we do goes waaaay beyond developing brainiacs. We’re a part of the village helping you raise AH-mazing humans!
YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY BURNS OUR COOKIES?
Fact is… Cookies need extra support!
1. The current system (don’t get us started) makes it REALLY hard for teachers to meet the needs of ALL of their students. Sad face. 😔
We see YOU (points finger) middle of the pack ‘compliant ones’. You don’t cause behavioural isues, so you sit in class, day after day. Content yet unchallenged. Into the jar with you!
We see YOU (finger fling to the left!) The ‘super bright ones’. You’re “extended” and “enriched” but quite potentially bored out of your brains. Opens lid, shuts firmly.
We see YOU (Yes you!) The cheeky students (secretly our FAVES) that monopolise teacher attention. You’re “managed” while your basic skills fall further and further behind… and YOU’RE BORED! Join the Academy already!
2. These days… it’s just not cool to be smart. WORSE STILL, it’s social suicide to try. Super sad face. 😔
At CCA we’ve flipped the script and learning is dead SEXY (said in Fat Bastard voice). And trying? Well, that is absolutely compulsory (Samuel L. Jackson voice ammiright?) We celebrate our academic wins, we cheer each other on and we KNOW that learning is the bomb.com.
And once we have you in our jar… Watch out World!
ASKING FOR HELP IS NOT A SIGN OF WEAKNESS.
Nor is it a sign that you think your teacher has failed! It’s a sign of strength!
We’ve got the oven cranked and we’re baking up the next generation of dreamers, thinkers, believers and doers.
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT!
We make SURE we know where you’re at. Our bakers are experts at diagnosing who is underbaked or too crispy around the edges.
We place you with like-minded and similarly skilled Cookies. Oreos with oreos. Tim Tams with Tim Tams. Focusing on your ability (not your age) allows us to extend those Cookies who are ready, or focus on core skills for those who need some gap-filling.
We ‘Work Work Work’ – in fact it’s all you’ll ever do at CCA. Problems will be solved. Pages will be filled. Cookies will be imbibed. Feedback will be given always and in ALL WAYS… Aural, Visual, Written, Interpretive dance (JK… we sing instead).
Don’t stop ‘get it get it’ – once you’ve mastered the skills in your Stage group, it’s time for a corner office, a fancy new title AND to level up! Each of our stage-based programs flows seamlessly to the next!
ABOUT THE FOUNDERS
Directors, Peita and Rob Mages are highly experienced teachers who founded CCA in a shed on their property in January, 2019. Their instant rapport with students and the stunning word of mouth from deliriously happy Cookies spurred a move into the big smoke of downtown Orange. They’ve since packed the Cookie jar with Secondary English, Maths and Science Head Teachers and primary teachers with 10 years + experience. To boot, they are teacher trainers. Which pretty much means… they know their shiz.
