Top Academic Enrichment Programs in Victoria



Sylvan Learning

Help your child catch up, keep up, or get ahead. Most students, regardless of their academic performance, can use extra help to achieve their full learning potential in one or more key subjects. At Sylvan, their proven process begins with a Sylvan Skills Assessment test that is designed to identify your child's strengths and needs, so they can create a personalized program.



Kumon Math and Reading Centre

Kumon offers comprehensive reading and math programs, enrolling students as early as age three with a curriculum that extends through high school. Students attend for reasons of either enrichment or remediation and the program can be tailored to the needs of each student. Many children remain in the program for a number of years, sometimes beginning as remedial students but eventually advancing beyond grade level.



Oxford Learning

Life-long tools like high self-esteem, an active, agile mind, and an understanding of how to study, learn, and think. Only Oxford Learning® puts all these outcomes within your child's reach — along with better grades — with their cognitive approach to learning, where they focus on helping children learn how to learn.
