OUR VISION

Vision Statement

Our vision is that our schools will become an anchor and beacon in the communities addressing not only holistic child education, but also Adult Education. The schools seek to provide balanced education to address the academic, physical (sport), spiritual, emotional and social needs of not only the learner, but the community as well.

Our Project

Our vision is that by 2018 we would have launched four more unique independent schools in the areas of Mamelodi, Eersterust, Nellmapius and Kilner Park to add to our existing school. Our schools will provide a world-class, affordable education using a proven curriculum to all students. With 70% of all students being vocational students, Anchor endeavours to erect a Vocational college from Grade 10 – 12, with an apprenticeship programme ensuring these learners a brighter future.
We at Anchor are going to radically impact communities in Tshwane through education by means of :

  • Our schools
  • A Vocational College
  • Sports Academies
  • Drama and Music Programmes
  • Community Development and upliftment

MISSION STATEMENT

Impacting the lives of young people of South Africa through excellence in leadership, self-discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity and good citizenship.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe in:

  • The absolute authority and inspiration of the Old and New Testament written under the direct guidance of the Holy Spirit, equal in parts and without error in its origin.
  • Honouring the one true tri-une God (externally existent Father, Son and Holy Spirit), who created man by a direct, immediate act.
  • The pre-existence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, bodily resurrection, ascension to heaven and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The fall of man, the need of regeneration by the operation of the Holy Spirit on the basis of grace alone, and the resurrection of all to life and damnation, and the ability of the individual to personally approach God. (ie the priesthood of believers)
  • The spiritual relationship of all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, living a life of righteous works and witnessing of his saving grace, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
