As the eldest group of the school, TKG Academy Secondary School students get to implement leadership qualities being developed for the past decade, both academically and spiritually. They are encouraged to fine-tune their strengths and interests, in order to cement their career options and develop skills for the line of work they will enter.
Taking responsibility for their academics, students prepare to transition to higher education. The teacher acts as a learning coach to facilitate their success, and strengthen understanding. Enrichment classes provide the needed social and off-screen balance.
