NCTC is an accredited school with Ghana Education Service.
At NCTC, we pride ourselves in helping students find and acquire knowledge, skills, and attitudes for themselves through student-centered approaches to teaching and learning. Hence, the active-learning approach is highly utilized. Teachers are therefore facilitators of learning who fully understand that every child is unique and can be helped to succeed using child-friendly strategies.
We believe in ‘training tomorrow’s leaders today.’ We embrace a holistic education hence termly academic/non-academic activities such as musics, fun games, exhibitions, excursion and project fairs are consistent features of the education we offer here.
NCTC Pre-School welcomes children from age 2 up to 4, starting from Nursery 1 and ending at Reception (KG1). Our qualified staff offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment for children to learn and develop. We encourage active learning through play, enabling our children to grow in confidence and succeed in future learning situations.
The Pre-School curriculum is relevant to the children’s needs and prepares them for future school years. The children are taken through literacy, numeracy lessons. Our activity based lessons give the children the opportunity to actively participate in class. The teachers observe and respond appropriately to children’s needs as a result of being aware of how children develop and learn.
Our curriculum enables children to progress towards the Seven Areas of Learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Expressive Art and Design
The five areas of learning help our teachers plan the learning environment and activities to provide the children with the opportunity to develop competencies and skills.
NCTC Pre-School provides the solid foundation needed for the child’s development.
The NCTC Primary School starts from year 1 and ends at year 6. Students in year 1 are typically aged 5/6 years of age. Students in year 6 are typically aged 10/11years. At the Primary School we believe that activity-based and fun lessons, combined with a good blend of action-packed, creative, service-based and varied extra-curricular activities form the basis of a great education.
In the Primary School, the subjects offered are Mathematics, English, Science, Citizenship Education(Ghanaian Perspective), ICT, Creative Art, and Religious & Moral Education.
For Mathematics, English, and Science, the Ghana Education Service Syllabus provides the curriculum framework. It develops skills, knowledge and understanding in young learners. This curriculum provides all the necessary guidance, material, and training for classroom teaching and learning.
Citizenship Education, Creative Art, ICT, Religious & Moral Education are based on the Ghana Education Service Syllabus. This curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of students at the school.
At the Primary School we believe that children learn best when they have fun. Based on this simple idea, teachers are trained to deliver lessons that invite children to participate actively, express their opinions and facts eloquently, and develop skills and understanding effectively.
The NCTC JHS is for learners between the ages of 11-14 years. The Ghana Education Service current syllabus is followed at this stage with emphasis on English, mathematics, and science.
In addition, subjects such as Social Studies, Science, BDT(Home Economics), Religious & Moral Education, Ghanaian Language (Asante Twi) and ICT are also taught using the Ghana Educational Curriculum.
Students at this level are required to develop skills, acquire knowledge and insights needed for the BECE Examination at Form 3.
