Foreword by Headmaster
Calling Academy opened its doors in January 2018 to its first cohort of boys. These 60 boys have the opportunity to play a pioneering part in developing the school’s initial culture. The school aims at providing a stimulating environment for boys with high academic and leadership potential. In 2019, the second group of 60 Grade 8 boys will join the school.
The school was originally founded with the core aim of providing a high quality education to learners from low income communities, made possible by an innovative funding model. The Admissions Policy reflects the school’s commitment to primarily serve learners from low income communities. However, an integrated classroom is envisaged where boys of different socio-economic backgrounds can learn from each other in a synergistic way.
Calling Education extends an invitation to any Grade 7 boy (in 2017) to apply for a place in this selective school. Two Grade 8 classes will be active in 2018.
A strict selection process will be followed to ensure the quality of the pioneering group that needs to lay an outstanding foundation for the future success of all Calling Education schools.
