At Curro Kathu we not only strive towards academic excellence, but we employ a holistic approach to developing each learner to become an educated, confident adult throughout life. 

We offer value-based education by creating opportunities for our learners, whether they be academic, cultural or on the sports field, and by ensuring that technology supports the learning process. The Curro Kathu educational model is characterised by positive discipline, a Christian ethos and values, creative thinking and child friendliness.
