At Carpe Diem Academy we care

Join us as we believe, achieve, and become great citizens of the community and leaders of our country. Here is a reminder of what we stand for in leadership and education. The school is our pride and we, staff and learners, are proud to be a CARPIE.

Carpe Diem Academy’s loving environment provides a sense of inclusivity, unity, and security. It provides a new home away from home. A home consisting of teachers with parental qualities such as love, support, and encouragement and that inspires students to believe more, achieve more, and become more. As a parent you can rest assured that your child’s best interests are being catered for. We inspire all children to take part in leadership to develop them in becoming the best versions of themselves. We take pride in our learners; we love them and encourage them as if they are our own. Besides intellectual enhancement, inclusivity is a core pillar at CDA- Together we are one.

As a school we take pride in our school uniform. As it allows us to stand united and build a strong future together. We encourage our parents and learners to share our vision of unity. Uniforms are compulsory for all learners from grade 8-12. Carpe Diem Academy school wear is branded and is currently available at our shop. If you need any help regarding the uniform, our friendly receptionist is always ready to help and guide you. It is our goal to make sure each learner succeeds. We offer our learners the best possible opportunities to become confident adults and reach their full potential. Our dedicated staff enable us to deliver our programs in an environment that is engaging and attuned to every specific educational need. “We appreciate your efforts; as parents in working towards our vision.”

We are very excited about the athletics day on the 10th of March that is taking place at Hoërskool Waterkloof’s sport grounds. This day is compulsory for all learners. To all our athletes taking part in this prestigious day, good luck! We know that you will keep our school’s name high. To our dedicated cheerleaders working very hard alongside teacher Natalie Bailie, may this day be everything that you hoped and worked for. Without your leadership and encouragement our spirits wouldn’t be so high. To our parents we regret to inform you that you will not be able to attend the athletics day due to Covid-19 regulations that are still in place. Be rest assured that Mr. Turk will be there with his camera, capturing every moment. The photos will be available thereafter on our Facebook page.

We want to thank our dedicated parents that always support our school as well as our willing parents that stand on the school governing body council. Your support in taking this school from strength to strength is much appreciated.
