Homeschooling Fees: Scienza Academy

At Scienza Academy, our homeschooling fees cover tutoring according to a CAPS-aligned syllabus.

We use Impaq products and services and receive academic support from them. This means that there are two independent sets of homeschooling fees: Impaq’s costs and Scienza Academy’s fees. The FET phase may require additional assessment fees.

We use Impaq’s study material together with their portfolio work. Scienza recommends that the learners register for physical copies of learner material and that up until Grade 9 electronic facilitator guides are used.

Our monthly centre fees entitle learners to attend all lessons offered for each subject that they are registered for. Learners also receive assistance with tasks and exam preparation.

We also offer additional tutoring sessions by arrangement for learners who are not enrolled at Scienza Academy.

Additional Assessment Fees

During the FET phase, Impaq requires that subjects with a practical or oral component be externally assessed. Alternatively, learners can participate in Impaq organised assessment days.

For external assessments, we recommend that learners make use of a private assessor. An approximate cost of using the private assessors who will be organised by Scienza is shown in the table below. These requirements are based on Impaq’s 2021 policies and are valid as at September 2021.
