UCT said the online high school ecosystem was designed to service South African learners from a broad range of socioeconomic backgrounds.
It offers a CAPS-aligned curriculum and enables learners in grades 8 to 12 across the world the opportunity to study at a monthly fee of R2,095 (US$145).
The full curriculum will be made available for free on an interactive online platform. Users of this free content will be issued with a learner number to save their learning path and data. Learners will have full access to expert-designed interactive notes, videos, animations, simulations, practise assignments, and quizzes.
The University of Cape Town has launched a university-based online high school for grade 8 to 12 learners.
