In South Africa your demography defines your destiny. In the Alexandra Township, less than 30% of scholars who matriculate from secondary school do so with a Bachelor’s Pass; the pass needed for acceptance to a university. The average Bachelor Pass rate in schools that serve scholars from the more affluent suburbs of Johannesburg is 99%. Kgololo Academy provides team members with the opportunity to serve on the front lines of of a movement to ensure that ALL of our children have access to a world class education.
Kgololo Academy believes in empowering both scholars and teachers with the knowledge that they need to excel. At Kgololo Academy, all instructional staff members receive on average 300 minutes of professional development inclusive of classroom observations, feedback and training per week. In addition, Kgololo Academy is a part of an international network of high performing, university preparatory schools in the United States, Chile, Mexico, and South Africa known as The 1World Network of Schools.
At Kgololo Academy, we are a team and a family. Inspired by KIPP Schools in the US, we believe that we work in schools and not in classrooms. Every member of our team work together in order to accomplish our mission of providing the best for all scholars regardless of whether or not we teach them directly. We support each other through the intense yet beautiful work of strengthening ourselves and our community through education.
