The School is registered with the Independent Examinations Board and will therefore enter learners for the Grade 12 Matriculation Examination and for the Grade 9 Core Skills Test and the International Benchmarking Test.

Religious Education:
This is an integral part of the school curriculum. We follow the policy laid down by the Catholic Institute of Education and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rustenburg. This gives a broad-based Christian education.

Student Support Services:
Professional psychological services are recommended to parents if deemed necessary. Peer counselling is available for students. All peer councillors have been trained with Life Line. Academic support is given – extra lessons are provided after school. This includes computer assisted programs, e.g. Cami maths, Internet access for school projects and ‘Readers are Leaders’ for English and Afrikaans.
