Curro Academy Protea Glen is an independent school in Protea Glen, Soweto that provides high-quality education for learners from Grade R to Grade 9 with higher grades phasing in annually. Our small class sizes (35 learners or less) and enhanced curriculum empower learners with skills and knowledge to grow into self-confident individuals and to reach their personal, educational and eventual workplace goals. Our dedicated teachers and well-rounded approach prepare learners for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations at the end of Grade 12.
What do we offer?
At Curro Academy Protea Glen, we offer a high-quality curriculum at affordable school fees, along with a variety of activities and subjects. Our small class sizes allow our learners to receive personal attention in the classroom, which helps to ensure that they reach their full potential. We also have additional academic extension sessions in the afternoons to help learners who are struggling or require extension to excel.
Our enhanced curriculum incorporates a project-based learning approach, while our dedicated teachers and recreational activities, aim to make learning a fun experience. Although teaching takes place in English, we offer isiZulu and Afrikaans as additional language options from Grades 4 to 9.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in sports and cultural activities plays an important role in promoting health, team-work, discipline and self-confidence. Many of our activities are designed to help learners discover their inherent talents, or to broaden their exposure beyond their current reference framework. These activities are generally included in the school fees. Independent service providers offer ballet, judo and music on-site in the afternoons.
How do we make going to school fun for learners?
Our carefully-designed classrooms, engaging teaching methods, and approach to positive discipline allow learners to enjoy attending school. As a result, learners actively engage in teaching during class time, and learning is made fun without compromising academic standards. Our applied 21st-century teaching ensures that our learners remain interested in the content. Learners learn best in a supportive environment where learning is fun and interesting rather than stressful. In 2019 we hosted family fun days, dress-up days, informative career days, and had a visit to our classrooms from Santa Claus during the festive season.
Caring for others is one of our core values which is why we have adopted the Tokologo Self-help Centre as our outreach initiative and our learners also participate in various peer social development campaigns.
