Grade 5 - 7

Our Approach to the Senior Phase

Our senior is an important time for our learners in helping them develop not only their characters but also how they apply their logic to problem-solving and other academic skill.  We place a strong emphasis on their spiritual development during the phase of their education with us, as we want to raise a generation of men and women who love God, love one another and ultimately make a positive and lasting impact on those around them, that will lead them to positive and sustained destinations in life.

Our curriculum provides appropriate challenges and opportunities for each learner to master as they progress academically towards a greater understanding of what vocation they ultimately want to pursue.
