Premium Option

Please note the live component of the premium offering is not currently available in this timezone and or educational calendar.

These extra subjects do not replace, but will rather complement and be taken side by side with the current curriculum. The main curriculum is mandatory and whilst certificates of completion are issued for each of the Premium Option courses, they are not certified by any external body and are designed to offer sorely needed extra knowledge and skills that we feel are lacking in all schooling curricula.
In this context, the term curriculum means a range of different courses that we have created to collectively make up the delivery of an entirely new range of skills and knowledge to those students that are enrolled.
We believe that students don’t get enough of the knowledge and skills that they need from the existing curricula that are offered; the curricula are in most cases hopelessly outdated and not nearly as relevant as they should be for today’s modern, ever changing, information based era.
In the new world in which we live now, Shakespeare, complex Trigonometry, advanced biology terms, scientific formulas about the elements, and studying content that is irrelevant and won’t be used again have little place in our daily lives. Instead, we need to better equip our children to face the challenges of tomorrow
All students have to deal with the content of their current curriculum as that is not negotiable and is a requirement to pass the examinations that are set by those examining bodies. There is no escaping that.
However, there are courses and subjects that you can offer your children to better equip them for these challenges. We have identified various subject areas that we think all students should know more about, in order to give them a better chance at succeeding and making the right decisions throughout their careers. Here is a list of these subjects:
The Premium Option course grades will display on report cards as each course level contains graded assessments. However, these grades are not part of the official curriculum and will not count towards a student’s overall grade average.
This course is for anyone interested in improving the quality of their lives by improving the quality of their thinking. It fosters the development of basic intellectual skills students need to think through content in any class, subject, or discipline, as well as through any problem or issue they face.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize one’s own and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior. For more information, click here.

Every student needs to know how to study, but many don’t! This prevents them from realising their true potential. We have a solution to try and address this issue.

We have included this course at no extra cost and believe that students should do this course once a year as a refresher, to help them achieve the best study methods for their individual personality type.
