The world is changing. We now have access to knowledge about almost everything at the click of a button. Across the globe, education is rapidly evolving to produce students who are not only skilled enough to deal with these changes, but are also more innovative and creative in coming up with solutions to our current challenges.
Future Nation Schools’ aim is to spearhead the African education revolution by providing a model that is both futuristic, technology enabled and epitomises excellence in Africa!
The strategic intent of Future Nation Schools is to produce future African leaders who are passionate, excel in what they do, are ready for the 21st century and are confident in themselves.
Our vision is to build a network of affordable private schools across South Africa, and the rest of Africa, that offers excellent education which is characterised by: student-centered learning, high academic standards, problem-solving skills, a focus on applied research and development (including project-based teaching and learning), innovation, leadership, entrepreneurship and African studies.
We want to achieve a 100% university entrance qualification in every graduating class of the Future Nation Schools to uphold our value of excellence.
Future Nation Schools aims to prepare students to excel and succeed in their personal and professional life through:
- Creating a solid foundation (empowerment, self-discipline, responsibility, resilience and confidence)
- Commitment to identifying children’s unique needs and talents
- Preparing students to live and work in a modern, ever-changing and global environment
- Employing the best academic talent (traditional and non-traditional teachers)
- Promoting diversity in our academic staff and students
- Promoting continuous learning
- Providing access to the best global content
- Providing learning spaces which are modern and aesthetically pleasing
Future Nation Schools have a distinctive educational model through the most effective and innovative instructional practices in a global context; a curriculum that is highly structured while developing students’ ability to work independently; and which uses learning technology.
All people are different. All people learn in different ways and at different rates. It is our task to meet this challenge. Regardless of his or her ability, each student has the right to a personal challenge every day.
This is a fun place to work and learn. We will create and embrace an environment in which people feel welcome and valued by practicing kindness, fairness, open and honest communication, fun activities.
We seek to develop young people who commit to action, are guided by purpose, and are resilient in the pursuit of those commitments. This resilience includes the ability and humility to learn from set-backs, and to persist. Passion for their subject and craft will also be key in the selection process of teachers and school leadership.
We want to develop young people who expect excellence of themselves and others, and who develop habits of excellence. We can only do that if excellence runs through every aspect of what we do as an institution. Our teachers will be expected to constantly hone their skills in pursuit of excellence for both themselves and their students.
The moral complement of excellence is integrity. We expect the high standards of integrity from our students, teachers and from every other member of the Sifiso Learning Group community, and we commit to this as an institution.
We stand by respect for ourselves, for others, and for our environment. We will create a safe environment for our staff and students.
