South Africa Gets New Online  High School Charging Ksh. 168,000 Per Subject

International EdTech company, Crimson Education, has launched a private online high school – the Crimson Global Academy (CGA) – in South Africa, with a tuition fee of only Ksh. 168,000 (R26,000) per subject.

The CGA will offer international qualifications including the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and A-Levels, the group said.

Students to Enroll from September 2020

Launching in Australasia earlier this year, CGA said it is now enrolling South African students for the new academic term kicking off in September 2020.

They will join a network of learners from around the world, including the United Kingdom, Europe, and Russia.

Students are enrolled in classes based on their academic ability, regardless of age, location, or commitments, allowing them to learn at a time and pace that suits them.

“Students can enroll full-time and complete their entire high school qualification online, or they can enroll part-time, to supplement their education with internationally recognized A-levels, while attending another school,” said Rebecca Pretorius, country manager for Crimson Education South Africa.

Teachers to Deliver Live Online Classes

“The rigorous curriculum and university-style approach to learning set students up for success when it comes to university applications in South Africa and abroad,” she added.

Pretorius said that teachers will deliver live online classes in real-time.

“This is supplemented by chat rooms and multiple apps, which help learners to stay in touch with their teachers and fellow students. Feedback can be given instantly so progress is immediate,” she said.

She said that CGA will also offer “passion-specific extracurricular opportunities”, mentorship programs with graduates from world-leading universities, and school social events that will involve traditional leadership positions, house camaraderie, and school celebrations.
