Academics

Dale College has a long history as a school of excellence. While sporting prowess has often outshone that in the classroom, current leadership at the school is committed to ensuring that learners leave Dale College, first and foremost, with a strong academic foundation. Discipline, academic stimulation and a sense of participation are pillars with which Dalians will take their place as active citizens in South Africa. Through classroom interaction we aim to develop these pillars.

Learners are stimulated in what we pride ourselves on as relatively small classes for Public Schools – with grades of approximately 110 learners generally being split into four classes. The school follows the CAPS curriculum, and the following subjects are offered.
