About the South Australian Aboriginal Secondary Training Academy (SAASTA)

South Australian Aboriginal Secondary Training Academy (SAASTA) provides Aboriginal high school students with a unique sporting and educational program. Our academies work with school leaders and local communities all across South Australia.

We give students the skills, opportunities and confidence to dream, believe and achieve in the areas of sport, education, employment, healthy living and connection with their culture.



Who can do SAASTA?

SAASTA is available to students in years 10, 11 and 12 who are studying the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

More than just the curriculum

We provide opportunities for our students to grow as young people, connect with their culture and gain the skills and attitudes to become independently resilient.

Acknowledgement of Country

At SAASTA we recognise and acknowledge that a number of our academies are located on the lands of the Kaurna people, the traditional owners of the wider Adelaide region. We would also like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands beyond Kaurna country where our academies have been established. We respect the cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship that Aboriginal people have with the land and understand that this remains of significant importance today.
