​Tēnā koe!

Welcome to Ako Academy

Our purpose at Ako is to lift confidence, knowledge and understanding through cultural capability development.

In te reo māori, the word 'Ako' means to learn and to teach. This is reflective of the Māori worldview that education is a mutual exchange between kaiako, teacher and tauira, student. 


We provide a fun, safe, and mana enhancing learning experience that builds cultural competency and confidence with te reo and te ao māori. 

The Ako Learning Suite
Coming soon!

Imagine a world where you can learn te reo māori with the help of a digital reo buddy right from your phone!


Ako Academy and Ako Innovations are proud to announce the development of our digital learning suite, Ako - an interactive learning experience for learners of Te Reo Māori featuring a digital reo buddy to help learners gain confidence and competence speaking te reo māori!
