Learning English plus the schooling curriculum and related academic content. These are provided by Velocity Corporation, a business that has been delivering academic online schooling excellence since 2011.

The schooling curriculum is aligned with the South African CAPS syllabus from grades 5 - 9 and thereafter the American GED school leavers curriculum for an additional two years, which has been divided up into two levels, namely GED 1 and GED 2. Students are prepared to take the final GED exams offered at centres throughout South Africa if they wish to obtain the GED certificate, which is issued by the State of Maine's education dept. in the USA (If you wish to obtain this certification, an extra fee is payable directly to your nearest GED testing centre). If students do not feel it necessary to obtain the GED certificate, they can continue with their tertiary studies via an affiliated college by passing the Pocket Classrooms Internal GED Equivalency Exam at the end of their GED 2 year. In this instance, students will not be issued with a certificate by Pocket Classrooms. If they obtain 65% and above for their internal final exam with Pocket Classrooms, they will qualify for admission to any of the tertiary short courses offered. If a student completes two short tertiary courses, they qualify for admission to any of the tertiary accredited courses.
