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.
