The AVI Star Schools Incubator Programme affords grade 10, 11 and 12 children from 27 township schools the opportunity to attend additional classes in Mathematics, Science and English. AVI currently sponsors three programmes which assist 450 scholars who attend school on Saturday mornings and during their school term breaks. Venues have been secured at Wits University, University of KZN and the Alberton Teachers Centre.
The programme has proven to be very successful. The pass rate of Star Schools scholars for grade 12 in 2012 was 99%, compared to the national average of 73.9%. 75% of those Star Schools scholars that passed achieved a university exemption, compared to a 26.6% national average.
