Frequently asked questions

British international curriculum
The British international curriculum is a very structured curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of all students, stretching brighter children and supporting those who need it through differentiated teaching and learning activities. Over 10,000 schools in over 160 countries follow the British international curriculum. Please note, we are not a registered Cambridge school but prepare students for their final international GCSE and AS examinations. Because our students are dispersed throughout the world, they write their final GCSE, AS and A level exams at any British International exam center.

United States GED curriculum
Internationally, the GED® is the number one most recognized higher secondary certificate. The GED® program is the only higher secondary certificate offered in over 85 countries and accepted by almost all universities in the United States and many globally. The GED® exam comprises of four subjects, written as individual exams.

South African CAPS curriculum

Generation Z children are drawn to technology – why not use this to your benefit and use it to teach your children? The aim of online education is not to match traditional classrooms but to improve it. Our content carefully balances video, animation and text. Although watching a video can be valuable, it is still a passive activity. For online learning to be successful, it needs to be engaging and interactive. At traditional schools, if a student is bored or performs badly, he/she fails. In technology, if the user is bored or performs badly, the product designers have failed. Our aim is to offer the most technologically advanced solution to ensure your student’s success.
