A home for academic and creative expression
Universal Promise has always been in awe of South African talent. We are floored by the mastery of multiple languages, genuine curiosity, multipart harmony, Xhosa dance steps, and student expressiveness. The hope is that the Academic Centre will showcase this broad range of intellectual and creative abilities within the school and beyond, and stimulate and hone other areas, as well.
The center will be designed and constructed with sensitivity to sustainability and local employment. It will include an open-floor design to enhance lighting and use green technology for heating, cooling, and water purification.
