The Academy Hout Bay will never exceed an intake of 96 students, making this special place of learning an unparalleled and unique journey of discovery for your child. You’re invited to experience this at our Open Day on Wednesday.
The Academy Hout Bay’s ethos is inspired by the Montessori philosophy that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child—physical, social, emotional, and cognitive. Based on our principal Daniel Landi’s teaching experience he has successfully augmented the Montessori ethos with the pedological principle of “Educere” (to draw out from within) and the practical requirements of academia needed to succeed in attaining a recognised high school certification.
The aim is to open a whole new world of possibilities of learning.
“We aspire to develop young adults that have critical reasoning skills, the ability to organise and communicate their understanding and the confidence and courage to apply their skills and knowledge. Creativity, adaptability, and perseverance: This is what FTSE 500 companies are now demanding. Students cannot just have 1-dimensional academic skills anymore. We want children to never lose their wonder in the world.” Daniel Landi (Principal)
The Academy offers a unique academic programme focused on personalized, experiential learning, and critical thinking that develops independent learning skills for university and marketable life skills for the workplace. Why not come and find out for yourself?
We are hosting an Open Day on Wednesday, 22nd August 2018 at 186 Valley Road, Hout Bay.
Everyone is welcome.
