Centurion Academy is a registered and accredited provider of a wide range of distinctive qualifications, and boasts a proud 22-year history of pioneering an academic offering that is designed to keep students engaged, motivated and able to enjoy what they are doing while they prepare for their chosen career.

We have taken the initiative to develop an independent, contemporary and responsive educational model offering an array of registered qualifications as well as providing all students with skills-based qualifications, in an environment designed to give you the tools to adapt to our ever-changing world.

In all instances, our model revolves around a unique concept of blended learning and support that offers today’s students the flexibility to attend our campus and benefit from great academic support, personal and professional development, and a vibrant sports and social life.

To further our goal of creating a dynamic educational environment, Centurion Academy has joined the NewBridge Graduate Institute family. This has brought a wealth of experience in tertiary education, as well as a management team that is well-versed in delivering a modern, innovative education experience that ensures our students are prepared for both student life and the working world.

An engaging academic journey

Central to our teaching and learning model are small classes, encouraging innovation in both our educators and students. Our education approach is designed to be engaging, while improving understanding, individual development and, ultimately, achievement.

A vibrant campus life

We understand how important campus life is as part of the college experience, encouraging personal growth and development. Our campuses are safe, central and digitally-enabled, offering our students vibrant spaces in which to learn, collaborate, meet new people and have fun.

Our social calendar sees a regular roster of exciting and engaging events, competitions and functions, ranging from health workshops and outdoor adventures to gaming days and social braais.
