A School For Teens Tailored to Individuality

Established in 2015, our school recognises that mainstream education doesn't always fit every student. We provide a supportive and nurturing environment for teens who learn differently, offering a far smaller class size for personalized attention.

Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking skills are a large focus. Students are given real world skills, capabilities, and mind-sets that will get them ahead outside of the classroom. While our students master core subjects like math, science, and language arts, we also prioritise a holistic education. We nurture social skills, critical thinking, philosophical inquiry, consumer awareness, and creative expression. We believe in fostering well-rounded individuals, not just academic achievers.

Self-Directed Learning

We champion curiosity and self-directed learning. Our students are encouraged to explore their interests, discover their hidden talents, and hone their unique skills. This journey of self-discovery empowers them to become confident and independent individuals.

GED Test Preparation (NQF Level 4)

Our ultimate goal is to set our students on the path to achieving their GED credential, the equivalent of a high school diploma. We provide comprehensive test preparation and academic support to ensure their success in this crucial milestone. By nurturing nonconformity, embracing diverse learning styles, and prioritizing holistic development, we prepare our students not just for the GED, but for a future filled with boundless possibilities.

A little background on Kendra, she failed grade 2 and then she was diagnosed with 2 kinds of dyslexia. She redid Grade 2 and then in Grade 3 she was about to fail that year as well. We then moved her immediately to a homeschool tutor center, but they were still working with the CAPS curriculum and even though her marks weren't bad, they weren't great either. She really hated school.

After many tears and begging from Kendra, we decided to move her Achievers Tutor Centre. Best thing we ever did. Her whole outlook on school has changed. Everything she learns is practical and prepares her for real life. The individual attention from Lauren is just what Kendra needed. She has become more confident in her school work and it shows on her report. Kendra is really excelling. We are so grateful for Lauren. Her teaching method is absolutely amazing.

My son has been with Lauren for 2 years and in that time he has flourished. I felt I might never find a place for him where he could be himself and learn in his own style but then I found Lauren and Achievers Academy and our lives changed.

Lauren is a phenomenal Teacher who has her own unique style of teaching and accommodating each child and their individual needs. She is loving and nurturing and there is no denying that the kids love back.

While there is lots of fun and laughter, Lauren has a way of getting the kids full attention and gets them working to their full potential.

My daughter had been at a Waldorf school where the methods and pace of teaching is very different. When I could no longer afford their fees I was stuck and did not know where to turn. I knew my daughter would be overwhelmed in mainstream, and I could not afford a remedial school. I was so relieved to find Lauren, who met my daughter where she was at, no judgements, only solutions.

Now, at the age of 17, my daughter reads with ease, is proving to be quite the talented writer, and is starting preparations to write her GED. If I look back at my 12 year old child, she was so anxious and insecure. She was afraid of learning, afraid to make mistakes. Over the past 5 years I have seen her confidence and character grow and flourish, and I credit it all to the safe, nurturing environment that Lauren's school provides.

Lauren knows each child individually, she knows their passions, their strengths and their weaknesses, and knows how to bring out the best in your child. The school curriculum is so broad and rich. They are not limited to their standard subjects. Rather they are exposed to a vast range of topics to navigate and explore, which I feel is so valuable for their general knowledge and for training their brains to think.

If the purpose of primary and secondary education is to prepare our children to either find work, or create work, to be self sufficient adults, I cannot advocate enough for Achievers to be the facility to get your child there.
