Curro DigiEd Schools provide an innovative, technologically advanced option for high-school learners. Our modern, technology-rich schools offer a unique approach to e-learning in class and accommodate only high school learners. The schools provide learners with 21st-century skills such as collaboration and self-discipline to prepare them for the technology-rich future of the workplace. To do so, they focus on a project-based learning programme that emphasises Science, Mathematics and Technology. With small class sizes and dedicated teachers, they aim to offer the most affordable school fees without compromising high academic standards.
What is the Curro DigiEd approach?
Teaching takes place through innovative methods, such as incorporating videos and e-learning in class. Learners often initiate the learning process with teachers and tutors providing one-on-one or small-group assistance where required. By moving the teachers away from the whiteboard at the front of the class and into the classroom space, learners can get more immediate and personal assistance to understand a particular concept before moving on. This also helps to ensure that we can keep our promise of affordable school fees.
With small class sizes and a strong emphasis on 21st-century skills, these schools offer advanced Technology, Science and Mathematics, as well as a Robotics and Coding programme. Learners write the NSC (National Senior Certificate) examinations at the end of Grade 12, but are taught to adopt a broader focus on world readiness in preparation for the fourth industrial revolution.
Longer school hours and no homework
Curro DigiEd Schools have longer school hours to accommodate the schedules of working parents and to further prepare learners for the long hours at the workplace. They even have a regular lunch hour. In addition, learners in Grades 8 and 9 receive little to no homework, while learners in Grades 10 to 12 receive homework mostly to cement their understanding of the learning material. As a service included in our affordable school fees, learners can be dropped off early in the morning when parents are on their way to work and picked up well after office hours.
Our learners gain 21st-century skills
Our partially self-directed learning approach strongly emphasises independent thinking, collaboration, communication and self-discipline by using interactive learning materials and e-learning in class. These soft skills are in high demand in the workplace, as working remotely and remaining relevant in a fast-changing brand environment require a great demand for interpersonal skills. By helping learners develop these 21st-century skills within our small class sizes, they are better prepared to excel not only in academic assessments, but in future-focused thinking through our broader world-readiness approach.
