As a pupil at N.C.E.C. the student/resident is afforded the best possible care and education available. The student may do grade10, 11 and 12. If in possession of grade 10 or 11 report card, they may do the following grade. The usual process, however, is for the student to enter the grade 11 year, then complete that year, and matriculate the following year. If the student should fail one or two subjects in their matric year, they may rewrite those subjects in the following year. Ideally the student should enter the scholastic program in grade 11- complete that year, then do grade12, or enter their ‘matric’ year and complete it successfully through hard work!
The central issue is that N.C.E.C. provides an ideal educative process for the recovering addict. The relatively small class groups ensure that the student benefits from individual tuition in all subjects.
The teachers are dedicated and passionate about the subjects they teach.
A concluding incentive is that most schools are reluctant, and at times, adamantly refuse to allow admission to a student who has a drug dependency history. The N.C.E.C,obviously does not consider this aspect a negative factor, and is there primarily to serve such students.
It is for the above-mentioned reasons that we urge you to consider enrolling your child in our program until he/she has completed their matriculation. After all, finally achieving, and finishing any course of action is a vital step in the recovery process. It must, however, be stipulated that if a pupil misbehaves so badly that he/she is sent on disciplinary intervention, time and again, we reserve the right to withdraw, said pupil, from school. They would be required to repeat the year of study. This is in the interests of, not only the said pupil, but also protects those pupils who are committed to their studies..
