CHRYSALIS ACADEMY PHASES
PRE-SCHOOL PHASE (GR 00 TO GR R)
Grade 00 to Grade R is the start of the foundation phase and forms the foundation of your child’s further education. In addition to the curriculum, we aim to ensure that children feel safe, are happy, and develop as unique little people as they learn through play.
FOUNDATION PHASE (GR 1 TO GR3)
Now learning becomes more formal and structured. While still a warm and inviting learning environment, pupils must learn to pay attention and have to achieve the necessary outcomes for progress.
It is very rewarding for teachers when the pride in doing it right is so joyful.
INTERMEDIATE PHASE (GR 4 TO GR 6)
Stimulating curiosity and exploring the world and people's place in it, is the order of the day in this phase. Our pupils are given wide exposure both in and outside of the formal curriculum.
The CAPS are a lot more content-specific than the previous curriculum and we ensure that what is specified in the curriculum, is covered. This ensures that the correct foundation is laid for senior grades and the ultimate external exam at the end of Grade 12.
JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL PHASE (GR 7 TO GR 9)
Specialist High School teachers and small classes allow for individual attention and ensure academics of the highest standard.
The chance to join a truly remarkable school is at the fingertips of any learner who is adventurous, has a positive outlook and who wants to get an all-round education.
FET PHASE (GR 10 TO MATRIC)
Learners in the FET Phase excel in academics, sport, culture and leadership. The combined effort from adventure and FET staff instill courage, the ability to persevere and great work ethics in every learner. This allows them to be successful in their endeavors and to serve on various committees as well as the Senior Leadership Council.
The subject choice in the FET Phase allows learners to enroll for either a diploma of degree course at university; excellent matric results are further indicative of the expertise of the educators and the sound knowledge of the learners. Smaller classes allow for more one-on-contact, resulting in stronger working relationships between learners and educators.
