In late 2003, The Sackville Academy was purchased by an Australian-owned family business. The Morris International Group, based on Queensland's Gold Coast, has been in business since 1973, and is a dynamic organisation with diverse interests including information technology, data processing, direct marketing, property investment, tourism, viticulture and wineries. Staff and management alike share a common goal of providing customers with exceptional service, and all staff work together to achieve the Morris International Group motto - "Showing the way".
In 2005, The Sackville Academy began offering online courses under a sub-company - Lifestyle Learning Online. Ultimately an "umbrella" company, named Lifestyle Learning Direct, was created to oversee the operations of these three schools.
