What is the High Distinction Academy?


The High Distinction Academy is a Christian tutoring company for High School students, specializing in Mathematics and English tuition for years 7 – 12.

We utilize a very powerful learning model delivered by brilliant qualified teachers. This sets us well apart from the competition. 

Classes are hosted at the University of Technology Sydney – right near Central station!

Our students have the advantage of being exposed to University style lessons which eases their transition from High School to University.

What makes us great?


There are three elements to our educational model that set us apart from other conventional tutoring centres:

1) Qualified teachers.

We only employ qualified teachers at our teaching centres. When you enroll your child to study with us, you can rest assured that they will not be taught by a university student without any qualifications in teaching; rather your child will be taught by a brilliant, qualified and experienced teacher.


2) Flipped classroom model.

We utilize a very powerful three step learning model.

Step1: Before coming to class, students watch a video lesson recorded by their teacher either on an iPad or computer. This video presents the basic concepts of the subject they are learning.

Step 2: Students then come to class and sit through a lecture, during which their teacher expands upon the concepts presented in the video lesson. Since students are coming to class already with a basic understanding of the material being taught, learning is greatly accelerated.

Step 3: Immediately following a lecture is a tutorial where students solidify their knowledge by solving problems and completing examinations.

Our effective three step learning model results in students confidently understanding all the elements of the subject they are studying.


3) Parents kept informed.

We are very transparent with our parents and keep them well informed on the progress of their children. We want all parents to be confident in knowing that they are receiving value in their  educational investment. At the High Distinction Academy we provide parents with regular detailed reports on their child’s progress.



What makes us amazing?


There is more to the High Distinction Academy than just being an outstanding tutoring center.

The High Distinction academy will be partnering with four different charities. So every year the High Distinction Academy will fund entire projects that:

1) Feed those around the world that are starving.
2) Build wells in areas without access to fresh drinking water.
3) Build homes for the homeless.
4) Rescue and rehabilitate victims of human trafficking.

The motivation behind these good works can be found in our motto:

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Both the parents and the students will be continuously kept up to date on the progress of these projects.

Students will see evidence of what it looks like when you shine a light in the darkness and help those that are suffering, and as a result they will be encouraged to care for the needs of others and not just their own.

Our Founder

Edward Kost

Edward is a graduate Mechanical Engineer from the University of New South Wales.

After working in education, Edward noticed that most students under perform academically because of the manner in which they are taught – lessons are usually dry and non engaging, encouraging the wandering minds of students to travel as far as possible from the classroom.

This resulted in the birth of the High Distinction Academy – an institute taught by qualified teachers whose passion for their work is clearly evident by the enthralling lessons that they deliver.

But Edward did not want to create just a brilliant tutoring center. Edward wanted this tutoring center to be a light in the darkness that helps those around the world that are suffering.

For this reason Edward created the High Distinction Academy with the following words of Jesus at its very center:

“Let your light shine towards others so that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven”

– Matthew 5:16

As a result, the High Distinction Academy has two layers – One an academic side, where students are taught to be thinkers that achieve above and beyond academically, and the other a good Samaritan side, where partnerships are formed with charities in order to fund and perform as many good works around the world as possible.

It is Edward’s desire that the High Distinction Academy illustrates, through these good works, the unimaginable beauty of the true character of Jesus the King of Kings.
