Mountain View Academy private school was started in the year 2006 to provide parents with an alternative to a “one size fits all” system as experienced in our traditional mainstream schools. The curriculum and school terms laid down by the Western Cape Education Department are followed. The content of the curriculum is presented with a holistic approach.
English, Mathematics and Life Skills are the core learning areas within the Foundation Phase at Mountain View Academy and all other learning areas are integrated within this programme. In the Intermediate and Senior Phases, the learning areas, as laid down by the Western Cape Department of Education, are followed. Where necessary, alternative forms of assessment are implemented within our supportive environment.
Learners in the FET Phase are offered the following package of subjects: English Home Language, Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy, Afrikaans First Additional Language, Life Skills, Business Studies, Physical Science, Life Sciences, Visual Art, History and Tourism. Each grade consists of an average of 10 learners.
Wherever possible, field trips are arranged to provide the learners with practical experience within the integration of specific learning areas.
