Welcome to Jahari Christian Academy independent school
Welcome to Jahari Christian Academy independent school
We started this school as a response to a call we felt to address the needs in our community for individual education and upliftment. As educators, we are passionate about providing opportunities for ALL students to thrive. Our school embraces a community that learns, grows, and improves—together.
Through regular professional practice sessions, and by encouraging learning with proven solutions and support, our educators create the environment to ensure successful results.
Teaching Biblical values, character building and leadership development
Autonomous learning is defined as an approach to learning with which learners hold the power or right to regulate and control their own learning activities. Learners are in charge of their own learning processes with autonomy. Autonomous learning is also called self-directed learning.
Learning to learn is essential in the development of a self-regulated, autonomous learner. Teaching the skills of researching, developing critical and creative thinking, communication skills, and social and self-management abilities is key for learners today (OECD, 2018).
There are many examples of learners who excelled academically thanks to sheer grit and commitment to hard work. That is the work ethic expected from learners.
Our curricula promote self-discipline and autonomous learning, and are aimed to guide our learners develop the ability to study through self-paced learning. Although the required pass mark is a minimum of 70%, the aim is not merely to help learners get good marks, but to prepare them for study at a tertiary level, where discipline and self-paced learning are crucial keys for success.
Student-centered learning emphasizes each student's interests, abilities, and learning styles, placing the teacher as a facilitator of learning for individuals rather than for the class as a whole.
In a teacher-centered classroom, teachers choose what the students will learn, how the students will learn, and how the students will be assessed on their learning. In contrast, student-centered learning requires students to be active, responsible participants in their own learning and with their own pace of learning.
Educational mindsets and instructional methods that recognize individual differences in learners, emphasizes each student's interests, abilities, and learning styles, placing the teacher as a facilitator of learning for individuals rather than for the class as a whole.
A range of initiatives is in place to promote academic excellence at Jahari, including:
Our staff create a learning environment for all learners – a place of shelter, a place called home, a place where individuals are valued, a place where values are essential, learning is central and potential is released.

We are a partner school of Partners for Possibility (PfP), the flagship programme of Symphonia for South Africa (SSA). SSA is a national NPO & PBO, based in Bellville, Cape Town, with a bold and audacious vision: Quality education for all children in South Africa by 2025.
It is our desire to create a loving, controlled environment to unlock every student’s full potential. Through daily personal attention, and the use of our unique school systems, the children will develop in character, academic competency, sport, and self-discipline.
Our mission is to provide a quality based education to our children with the best individually based tuition, quality materials and modern curriculum. We empower and inspire young men and women to achieve their highest potential through academic excellence.
We embrace Diversity. Our reason for being is to provide a holistic approach to the education of children—imparting spiritual values which serve as a foundation; providing an environment which promotes emotional wellbeing; stimulating and developing the child’s physical interests and talents; and sharpening the life skills necessary for every child to become a mature, productive member of society. There is no discrimination on any basis, even religious persuasion. In fact, the school is absolutely non-elitist, striving to make a quality private education available to any child.
We recognize the significance of teaching children the truth of God’s word because children are God’s greatest creation and are created in His image and are special in His eyes. (Gen. 1:27) All children deserve opportunities to learn and grow in the Lord. (Ps. 139:14). No child is exempt from God’s purpose and plan and all should be encouraged to know and trust in Him, worship Him, and serve Him.
