As a Pathfinder, we’ll help you achieve success regardless of your ATAR.









Feel like you’re studying hard yet still don’t get the results you want?


 Find yourself losing  energy or feeling anxious and overwhelmed?


 Feel like you’re   watching your dreams of a good ATAR slip away?


Hear friends talking about what they’ll study at uni, while you have no idea?


1. Ace your assessments and final HSC exams while staying healthy so that you can follow any path after you graduate

We’ll give you access to over 10 years of research and provide the methods required to master your time management, maximise your study time and reduce your stress and anxiety so you can achieve your personal best in exams and assessments. This means no more cramming, no more losing sleep, and no more freaking out.

2. Get clarity on your career path and into your dream course by successfully navigating your uni preferences and offers

The future of work is changing and it’s getting harder and harder for students to decide what path they should follow. We’ll help you establish the foundations for pursuing your future career through setting goals, optimising university preferences and developing the skills and resources required to impress employers and universities.

3. Maximise your future options through early entry and scholarships to stand out and get ahead in your career

Did you know that only 1 in 3 Australian university graduates can find full-time work? In the competitive nature of today’s workplace, the ability to distinguish yourself is an extremely valuable asset. We’ll provide you with guidance regarding your career pathways, personal branding and networking.

“The amazing team at Art of Smart mentored me on how to study effectively leading up to exams through mentoring, workshops and practice exams especially leading up to the HSC exams, and into university. I was mentored to think about my life after the HSC: my career vocations, my goals outside of academic life and my own wellbeing.  Overall, Art of Smart was imperative in my HSC year, allowing me to see how goals can be achieved academically and beyond!”

The Pathfinder Program and my sessions with my mentor has been one of the most valuable experiences of my schooling and professional career. School just doesn’t teach you the soft skills you need to turn your interests into a career, or to start growing your professional reputation. I learned the practical skills behind networking, interview skills, and gaining real expertise in your area of interest.”
