Academics at Elsen Academy
No Limits to Learning, Empowering Learners, Creating Leaders.
Classes are no bigger than 14. In some cases, we have teacher assistants that co-teach with our teachers. Therapists are also often seen in class adding extra support.
My child might struggle with CAPS academic curriculum?
Once your child is accepted, he/she is placed according to the amount of support and intervention that is needed. Categories 1 – 3 involve mainstream with some supportive therapies or interventions (if necessary). Category 4 refers to the mainstream with some modified areas such as maths and/or exam concessions
Is Elsen a Mainstream School?
Elsen offers the same curriculum as other schools with the added benefit of additional classroom support for our students, in-class supportive interventions and a holistic, inclusive environment for each learner to thrive as an individual.
