An important academic goal…
An important academic goal of Capital Science Academy is to provide a holistic educational experience for our students. Towards this end, we are continuously looking for ways to improve the quality of learning at our school.
The curriculum is centred on the Nigerian requirements of the West African Examination Council; WAEC and the National Examination Council; NECO; enriched with an International curriculum; the Cambridge / Edexcel General Certificate of Secondary Education; IGCSE, JAMB, French DELF, SAT and IELTS.
In addition, our curriculum enriches the students’ life through quality pastoral care and mentoring programmes, sporting activities and clubs, as well as providing for their social and spiritual needs.
We endeavour to prepare all our students to have access to the best worldwide educational opportunities in their future tertiary studies and to become global citizens who make a significant contribution to the lives of others.
1. SCHOOL ASSESSMENT
Assessment is an integral part of the teaching process at Capital Science Academy. We ensure students are continuously assessed, to give both ongoing feedback; formative assessment; and to provide a score/grade; summative assessment.
At the end of each week, students have a mini assessment on the subject matter covered during the week. Students are then given feedback and teachers re-teach concepts, as required. Students also have assignments to complete.
There are two major assessments each term; mid-term and end-of-term. All assessments are recorded and they provide a framework for continuous assessment. This allows the school to provide parents with balanced evidence of each child’s progress.
2. STUDENT SUPPORT
Students, who are identified in need of extra assistance, join a programme of support after regular classes, for 3 days each week. Support classes have a low teacher to student ratio and are tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. Teachers guide their students through the process of self-assessment and target-setting. Regular reviews take place between the teacher and everyone.
3. EXTERNAL EXAMINATIONS
WAEC / NECO / IGCSE
Because Capital Science Academy is committed to offering our students the best educational opportunities both Nationally and Internationally, we offer all students in the Senior Secondary School the opportunity to prepare and enter for three examinations: WAEC, NECO and / Edexcel IGCSE
IGCSE; International General Certificate for Secondary Education; is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 – 16 + year olds. Based on the best practice in the UK, IGCSE equips students with the specific subject knowledge, as well as with problem solving and critical thinking skills, and the ability to work independently and as a part of a team.
