Every Valenture student has a mentor whom they meet regularly for catch-ups.

Our students are supported by mentors on a 1:1 and daily basis. They are there to guide, to encourage and to advise our students along their academic journey with us. 

But students are also supported socially, as we believe in a holistic approach to education that sees every student achieve individual growth, and reach the goals and dreams they've set out for themselves. 

Avanti, Kate and Roxy are our current mentors and are all about establishing that connection with their students.

“We love our group calls with students. This is our favourite part of the week,” says Roxy.

Avanti is very excited about our Boutique Campuses launching later this year, and says that being on campus in person will allow her to give her students even better assistance. "When you're talking about an online-based high school, if you have the ability to see your students in person, it just adds to the relationship even more."

Kate agrees. Valenture is all about engaging students at every point. "We want students to engage on every platform that they have, whether it's on the phone with us, in a live session, or a breakout session or with their peers in assembly."

What our students think:

"I feel constantly supported, because my mentor is always there to help," says Simthandile. While Chrissy, another student agrees, saying "The system with the mentor is great, and the structure helps me plan my weeks far ahead."

The mentors don't only help students, but allow parents that peace of mind that their child is heard and won't fall behind at any time. 

“I particularly enjoy the mentor system and how responsive the mentors have been to any challenges," says Fred, a Valenture dad.

“The mentors do an amazing job at facilitating student interaction!," agrees Matthew, another Valenture dad.
