What do we offer?

At Northern Academy, we develop learners into well-rounded individuals by cultivating a lasting love for learning. Our high-quality curriculum provides a strong basis in the foundation phase and continues to build the skills and knowledge required to succeed in specialised subjects later on.

We have been recognised as the top independent school in Limpopo by the provincial government for four consecutive years.

Our academics are complemented by focused activities that provide physical and intellectual enrichment. Our learners are prepared for the NSC (National Senior Certificate) examination at the end of Grade 12 and our boarding school accommodates learners of all grades.

With two to four boarders per room, laundry and housekeeping facilities, comfortable learning areas, and live-in boarding school staff, our boarding school is a safe, comforting home away from home.


Which activities do we have?

As a Curro-managed school, we believe that sports and cultural activities play an important role in promoting team-awareness, self-confidence, and responsibility in addition to physical well-being. Many of our activities are designed for recreation or to develop interests or talents that might otherwise have gone undiscovered. These activities are generally included in the school fees.
