Australian Secondary Principals' Association
The Australian Secondary Principals’ Association (ASPA) is a professional body that represents the interests of principals, deputy principals and assistant principals from government secondary schools across Australia. ASPA works with the profession to shape a paradigm of leadership and learning in order to create a better, preferred future for all students in Australia’s government secondary schools.
At ASPA, we are committed to ensuring that high quality government secondary education is provided to young people no matter what their geographic, social or personal circumstances are.
The education of Australia’s adolescents is not only the responsibility of school principals, it is the responsibility of the entire community. We must build partnerships that support student learning in areas of need.
One area of need is the financial life skills education of our students.
ASPA is proud to partner with The Wealth Academy, an education company focused on developing the financial life skills of Australian secondary school students. The Wealth Academy, along with its corporate partners, helps school leaders to prepare students for the financial world in which they live.
It achieves this by:
- providing an extensive resource library that gives school leaders complete autonomy and flexibility in their usage
- facilitating and guiding the establishment of local school-community financial life skill partnerships, and
- supporting parents in their guidance of financial learning at home.
With advances in technology, it has never been easier to make a financial decision, but it also has never been harder to make a decision that is well-informed. The financial world is complex, ever-changing and relentless in its pursuit.
Our members need access to resources and expertise that can respond quickly to the ever-changing landscape of the financial world. Our students need behaviours, knowledge and skills to help filter, interrogate and decipher information that will help them to make informed financial decisions in their future.
As such, ASPA welcomes the support of The Wealth Academy in helping our members to provide a better, preferred financial future for all students in government secondary schools.
The Australian Boarding Schools Association is proud to announce our partnership with The Wealth Academy. The need to develop the financial life skills of students in boarding schools is important. As boarders live away from home, and without the daily guidance of parents, there is potential for students to develop attitudes and behaviours with regard financial decision-making, that will not serve them well in the future. All boarders regardless of background, deserve the right to build their financial capability in a safe, structured and supported environment. The need for financial education is increasingly important as it can counter-balance the constant messaging boarders will read and see relating to gambling, spending, live for now - pay later advertising. This is an exciting partnership that will bring about positive change for members, their staff and most importantly boarders. We encourage our members to get involved.

Tax & Super Australia
Taxpayers Australia has been providing tax knowledge to Australians for over 95 years and we’re now proud to join forces with The Wealth Academy to build financial literacy amongst students across the country. Those entering the workforce are often the least equipped to understand even the basics of our tax and superannuation systems. Taxpayers Australia has that knowledge and we look forward to empowering a new generation of students to leave education with a broad understanding of how the tax and super systems work, and how tax and super can ultimately work for them. Through written materials and video content, we’ll provide schools which are part of the Wealth Academy program with all they need to help their students understand how to get a TFN, how their tax will be deducted and what it will be used for, how to join a super fund, what they will get from their super fund and when. All this and much more. It’s essential that financial literacy is a core component of every child’s education. This kind of vital life skill helps prepare all students for business and for the workforce and Taxpayers Australia will be working together with The Wealth Academy to help provide those skills.
