About Us - Renaissance Australia

Hello, we’re Renaissance.


Accelerating learning for all

At Renaissance, we believe that every student can achieve their best with the support of teachers who guide them to discover themselves. We aim to support teachers in every classroom, and equip them with the tools to guide every student to accomplish ongoing growth as they progress through their school years.

We offer the leading data analytics and research-based practice to K-12 schools across Australia and New Zealand. Teachers take it from there – after all, their relationships and support are the key factor that drives student growth.

A teacher’s passion

More than 30 years ago, Renaissance was created by Judi and Terry Paul, two parents driven by a passion to enhance the learning skills of their son, a struggling reader. Our founders set out to enable dynamic practice through a new digital platform, to multiply the aha moments orchestrated by teachers. They understood that for students to become their most amazing selves, teachers must be given that opportunity as well. Our mission to accelerate learning for all is stronger than it has ever been thanks to the dedication of a parent and teacher.


Why do we love what we do? We get to see your students succeed.

Hearing success stories from students, teachers and schools are the key motivator driving us to continuously innovate our programmes. The ongoing success of students ultimately inspire us to deliver the best possible solutions.
