Secondary school

Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9

At Northern Academy, our Grade 8 and Grade 9 learners are encouraged to develop innovative and critical thinking, while a problem-solving teaching approach is taken to subjects such as Mathematics. Our affordable, enhanced curriculum guides learners to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity, and places greater emphasis on language development.

Our learners receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9.


FET phase: Grade 10 to Grade 12

The FET phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Our learners are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. Some of our specialised subjects include Economics, Accounting, and Information Technology.

Optional eighth subject through Curro Choice

Curro Choice allows high-school learners at all Curro schools to take an additional eighth subject not offered at their school. Lessons take place in the afternoons through live lessons with teachers, and learners remain enrolled at their schools. Applications remain open throughout the year, and as the final exam is written at the school, their subject results will appear on their regular progress report.
