SwitchedOn Education has provided a comprehensive Christian digital education curriculum to UK, European and African schools and homeschoolers since 2011.
Our comprehensive leading world-class online curriculum leads learners to accredited qualifications such as the American High School Diploma, University Associate Degrees (whilst enrolled at High School) and Cambridge International Qualifications
American High School Diploma
This is a modularized qualification based on mastery of course content over four years of high school academic work in a continuous assessment mode. Learners have the choice of a variety of subjects online that lead to Math, Science, Arts, IT, Media, and Business fields for ongoing higher education study. The American High School Diploma has been evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as being comparable to National Senior Certificate at NQF Level 4. Successful graduates are then issued with the Diploma as well as a full transcript detailing four years of coursework with symbols and GPA scores. Since each college and university has its own entrance requirements we recommend that you consult the one you select in order to confirm they will accept the American High School Diploma Qualification. Together with letters of admission from USA universities (or acceptable SAT scores) graduates have been admitted into several South African universities for undergraduate studies.
In a first of its kind on the African Continent SwitchedOn Education has pioneered Dual Enrolment. Selected learners may elect at the end of Grade 10 to transfer onto a USA University Online platform and complete university level courses in Grades 11 and 12 that also fulfill all high school course requirements. These learners then graduate at the end of Grade 12 with an accredited university Associate Degree AND the accredited American High School Diploma. Not only do Dual Enrolment learners get a two-year head start on their undergraduate degree but they save thousands of dollars on first world tuition costs.
Cambridge International Examinations
During 2020 and 2021 SwitchedOn Education together with Anchorage Curriculum Solutions began creating additional courses on our online platform. This has led to several IGCSE courses as well as Cambridge AS level courses being available. All learners that have a login and all registered schools have access to these courses with no additional cost.
Learners wishing to write the Cambridge IGCSE or AS level examinations may complete these courses online and then register directly with Cambridge to sit for the examinations.
