At Ad Astra, our main concerns are our students and their families. We work on Engagement and Education as well as Prevention and Reintegration.

The safety of our students is paramount. We understand how mental health can affect the wellbeing of young people and our dedicated safeguarding team is committed to supporting our students, especially the mental health issues that may have arisen from these uncertain times we are all facing.
