Good day Parent / Guardian,
Thank you for your enquiry at Advanced College SA.
We have been providers of material for Home school students the past 12 years. Due to the current Covid situation, the need has increased and therefore we discounted our fees, to make it more affordable for parents.
As we follow the standard CAPS curriculum, the students will easily adapt and carry on with the same work they have been doing in other schools. This also makes it very easy for them to return to most schools in the future, after they joined us with home schooling.
How does our system work?
- Our home school program has no online classes or videos, we supply you with the curriculum material and there should be a parent or adult responsible to tutor the child at home. Please note that we another option, should you require Teacher assistance via emails, the monthly fee will be R1000 per month.
- Fees R500 pm Grade 1 to 9 and R1000 pm Grade 10 to 12
- Our SBA’s (Student Based Assessments) are based on the standard CAPS curriculum as prescribed by The Department of Education. These SBA’s are sent to you and the student giving all a weekly, monthly and per term schedule on work to be done on each subject. You probably currently have the required text books, but if not, parent must buy these CAPS student books and if they wish, the Teachers study Guide. You may buy it yourselves or order it from our supplier who will have it delivered to you via courier. We will send you the list after registration. Please confirm for what grade so that we can supply you with the textbook list.
- We encourage parents to also register for Vodacom E-learning as this assist the students as well.
- All tasks, test, exams, memorandums and progress reports are provided by our teachers. End of the year exams should be written under the invigilation of a commissioner of oath. Some of our students write at the church or even if you can pay a school or centre close to you. You should supply us with their email address so that we can send the examinations to them closer to the time. Exams are sent to them 2 days before the day, and that person is responsible to invigilate over the student, take in the answer paper and send the answer paper to us.
