Summer School

NSW Education Standards AuthoritySturt's annual Summer School was established in 2000 and is growing in popularity over the years. You can now join our Sturt Summer and 'get creative' in the holidays. Hundreds of like-minded people enjoy our cool-climate campus and share courses across a wide range of art forms plus dedicated courses for young people.

Sturt is an endorsed provider of professional development by the NSW Education Standards Authority, so the Summer School is also a great opportunity for educators to learn and expand their skills in an exciting and enjoyable environment.
