Academic Structure

Home / Academic Structure

Students in Emplace College are required to complete a six-year academic program before graduation. There are 6-grade levels, with each level having at least three arms each A to C.  A class teacher is designated to each arm and this teacher is in most cases the one who is with that class for the entire academic year.

Lectures are taken in spacious and properly ventilated classrooms, with each classroom fitted with an interactive whiteboard and other necessary gadgets to aid 21st-century teaching and learning. The class teachers are expected to have contact with their students every day of the week during daily attendance registration. They (class teachers) also attend to the pastoral needs of the students or refer them to the school counselor on issues that might be detrimental to their academics.

There are four academic departments in the school, supervised by departmental heads.

Social Sciences, Arts, Pure Sciences and Languages

Academic Trial

Junior & secondary school students will be placed on academic trial for the next grading term/session when at the end of a grading term, they have an overall average below our least acceptable score of 60%, or fail a subject.

The academic trial is a programme aimed at getting our weak students to work at an an acceptable pace, through close monitoring. During the academic trial period, the students participation in extra-curricular activities, club programs as well as sporting activities would be considerably reduced and monitored to allow the student more time for academic work. The student is given extra support and encourgement during this process, as the idea is that it is seen as a corrective measure as opposed to some sort of punishment.
