Under 18s

Phoenix Academy is renowned for it’s wide range of services, especially for younger students. Phoenix Academy can help with high school placements, guardianship, accommodation, the student’s welfare counselling, orientation and even offer assistance setting up a bank account.

Accommodation: Phoenix Academy carefully selects an Australian homestay family for the student to stay with while they participate in the Academic English for High School Preparation Course. Once the student enters secondary education, the school will usually find a new family. Homestay accommodation is highly recommended. Immersion in the English language and culture through staying with an Australian family will greatly enhance the student’s English language development.

Guardianship: Students under the age of 18 years old are legally required to live with an approved guardian.
While studying at Phoenix Academy, the Academy together with the homestay family will act as guardians for the student, however, once students enter mainstream education, an approved guardian must be appointed. If students do not have a close friend or relative in Perth who is willing to act as a guardian, Phoenix Academy or the school can appoint a guardian for the student.
