In addition to the information general to all Crosspoint Academy school on the About Us page, the following is information specific to the Strand location school:
Crosspoint Academy - Strand is set up for Grades RR and R (Pre-K and Kindergarten), as well as Grades 1 thru 9. The ideal and maximum classroom size is established as 20 to 24 children per class (establishing a student to teacher ratio of 20:1 to 24:1). Currently we have over 230 students with a maximum capacity of 280 with separate Primary and Middle School buildings.
The school has existed from 2013. Since May 2018 it was renamed as Crosspoint Academy – Strand, having moved from the rural plot in Firlands to the now urban location in the Central Business District of Strand, Cape Town.
School fees are paid either annually (at discount), or divided (interest-free) into 11 monthly payments (no payments for the December month).
The school follows the government-standard CAPS curriculum. And is English Home Language with Afrikaans First Additional Language.
It is registered with the Western Cape Education Department (Registration Number: 0100000361) and is overseen by The Crosspoint Foundation (NPO 194-108) and is itself a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 224-366).
Each grade and class has a dedicated, qualified teacher. Additionally, a Volunteer Program is integrated with the school; assisting in the classroom with the teachers and daily activities with the children in school.
The school follows the standard government school year from January to December; including holidays and term breaks.
We have been blessed from the 2019 school year to be able to provide a healthy hot lunch to each child at the school, free of charge to them or their parents. this has transpired through the generosity of project:help in Germany whom have funded the entire feeding scheme for the year. And we hope to incorporate a free food scheme in the upcoming years.
Crosspoint Academy - Strand does not yet have after-school programs, nor sports programme, but is endevouring to incorporate it into the school.
