At least one parent must attend the interview, which is an informal discussion around areas such as family background, work history, religious affiliation. Principal shares schools vision, values, Christian ethos and curriculum (in detail). School fee structure is discussed.
Tests are carried out in Math, English, Afrikaans and Social Studies (Grade R-7) and in Math, English and Afrikaans (Grade 8-10 IEB). The tests are used to determine the correct level on which to place the child. The tests begin at 8:00 until 13:00/14:00/14:30 depending on the age of the child.
The Principal meets with the learner on the day of the diagnostic testing and discusses the learners interests, hobbies and views on various issues relevant to age.
The ACE curriculum is an individualized, Bible-based, character-building curriculum package. The academic system involves diagnostic testing, goal setting, and mastery of subject content. The conventional textbook is divided into bite-sized, achievable workbooks called PACEs. Each PACE is similar to a unit in a textbook. Each level/grade consists of 12 PACEs per subject.
The student's needs are met at their unique level of ability and potential. Every student masters the subject concepts in each PACE, thus consolidating relevant previous knowledge before moving on to new concepts.
The curriculum allows students to read the material for themselves, answer questions, and then test comprehension of the subject, gaining individual support from the teacher as required. This approach promotes responsibility, discipline and independence.
Our learning philosophy is based on the 5 Laws of Learning:
- The student must be on a level where he can perform.
- The student must set reasonable goals he can achieve in a set period of time.
- The student must be controlled and motivated.
- The student’s learning must be measurable.
- The student’s learning must be rewarded.
