Curro Academy Savanna City High School

Academics

Curro Academy Savanna City is an independent Curro Academy school in De Deur, Vereeniging, that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade 8 to Grade 10, with higher grades phasing in annually. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations at the end of Grade 12. Our small class sizes and enhanced curriculum empower learners with 21st-century skills and knowledge to grow into high-performing, self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual-workplace goals. We aim to provide the most affordable school fees possible without compromising our academic standards.

 

Senior phase: Grade 8 and Grade 9 

In these grades, we guide learners to adjust to a greater workload of higher intensity. With dedicated teachers and affordable school fees, our enhanced curriculum approach places great emphasis on problem-solving and individual thinking. Teaching in our small class sizes takes place in English, but Afrikaans and isiZulu are offered as additional language options. We implement 21st-century skills in subjects such as Natural Sciences and Technology. As a Curro Academy school, our learners also receive guidance when choosing their elective subjects at the end of Grade 9. 

 

FET phase: Grade 10 (higher grades phasing in annually)  

This phase prepares learners for the NSC examinations written at the end of Grade 12. However, through our enhanced curriculum we emphasise a greater world-readiness rather than a purely examination-driven approach. Learners in our small class sizes are taught to think innovatively, express their ideas and take charge of their own lives to be valued members of the community. Learners further benefit from having Afrikaans and isiZulu as an additional language options, and 21st-century skills are implemented in subjects such as Physical Sciences and Computer Applications Technology (CAT).

 

Additional subjects online

High-school learners can now extend their subject choices beyond what is offered at our school. Learners can choose from a wide range of subjects, and classes will take place during the school day in the form of live lessons with teachers. These subjects can be seen as an extension of our enhanced curriculum from which our learners already benefit.

Curro Academy Savanna City activities 

Sports and cultural activities 

As a Curro Academy school, we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting health, discipline, self-confidence and community. Therefore, our focused activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework as part of our affordable school fees. Some of our activities are aimed at boosting learners’ cognitive abilities, while others provide pure enjoyment. We also offer value-added programmes as part of the school fees, that include character-building programmes, career guidance and entrepreneurship skills.

 

We offer Curro Create programmes  

At Curro Academy Savanna City, we also offer Curro Arts Superhero (CAS) as part of the Curro Create initiative. CAS is an internal creative mentorship platform with a grading element, where learners are encouraged to discover, develop and display their inherent creative talents.
