Elsen Academy is a registered independent school (EMIS 101021) that caters for students from grades 1-12. We are also a registered NPO (056 – 340) and receive no government subsidy.
Sadly, we sometimes find ourselves turning away potential students, who we can see desperately need what we can offer, because of affordability.
By adding to our bursary fund from your CSI spend, we would be able to offer our school to more parents from the previously disadvantaged group. As of now, we are having to turn away many of these students as our bursary fund is limited.
Our pupils follow the same curriculum as the state schools and our grade 12 class writes the same matric. Our matric classes have achieved a 100% pass rate. Some of them had been told that they would never get a matric.
We have a B-BBEE Level 2 status and procurement recognition of 125%, which is where we can help you!
We are currently receiving some funds from donors and we split this money between needy students. The impact is beyond words as they are in a school that can cater for their individual numerous needs. The bursaries do come with certain conditions and are awarded annually provided the conditions are met.
Our most important condition is that the parents commit to play a very active part in their child's education. They are required to supervise homework and to attend parent-teacher meetings. Our teachers are required to communicate every day with every parentand thus there is no excuse to not be involved.
Any support would be greatly appreciated.
