R2735 per term

Grades 10 to 12

First-class education

This structured annual program emphasizes spaced reinforcement and extension in weekly lessons delivered live online via our streaming platform. This enables online learners to engage and ask questions just as if they were in the classroom environment.

Lessons, delivered by our expert teaching team, are made available to Academy learners via their dedicated online course. Included in this course are all lesson worksheets and summary notes. This is helpful in the event that learners are unable to make a lesson in a particular week or wish to look back on a lesson.

Application of knowledge is key to success in learning. In addition to the weekly lesson, learners are also required to write an assessment each week. This ensures that learners are spending focussed time practising and serves as an indicator of which areas each individual is struggling with and where they need support. Results on the spot tests are fed back to both parents and learners weekly to keep them informed and involved in the learning process.
