A contemporary mainstream school with an inclusive LSEN unit
Eden Academy will open its doors in January 2020 as a contemporary mainstream school, providing a quality and affordable education to children from Grades 1-3. Each consecutive year we will add a grade until we reach Grade-7 in 2024. In addition we will offer a LSEN unit, that specialises in teaching children with specific barriers to learning how to overcome and manage these challenges effectively.
Eden Academy will be registered with the Department of Education and we will follow a CAPS curriculum with a strong emphasis on literacy, numeracy and enquiry based learning techniques. We recognise that traditional mainstream education must evolve and respond to rapidly advancing globalisation and technology dynamics. Our distinctive approach to mainstream education will focus on teaching children the skills and attitudes of creative and critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration and co-creation, grit and determination, creative enquiry and innovation. We will ensure that we prepare our learners for their future by providing an engaging learning environment that grows them mentally, emotionally, socially, physically and attitudinally.
Eden Academy provides links and strategic partnerships with a wide range of sporting specialists and other schools, which enables our learners to participate in a range of sports to suit their preferences and aptitudes.
