Mrs. M Xulu, Principal

Basa Freedom School belongs to a group of schools under Basa Educational Institute Trust.

We pride ourselves on being the center of learning excellence located right in the heart of Greater Johannesburg. All along we have actively engaged the economic hub of Sub Saharan Africa Johannesburg and the world at large. We are housed strategically in Park Station where most of the major routes like Metro -rail, Metro- buses, and private commuter taxis converge. Again this is the melting point; where all the worlds; the world of science, the world of technology, the world of media, and the world of the arts interact. With such a privilege; one can boldly say our learners and educators have the unique opportunity in that they learn, study, consult, and interact with practitioners and leaders in almost every sphere of modern life. When the waves of change send ripples across the entire world Johannesburg is among the first to resonate with new changes. But we have remained a local school with a global touch. Our learners come from all walks of life; townships, SADEC, and Africa.

This school is registered with the Department of Education and follows the prescribed curriculum. Learners are assessed in accordance with government standards and sit for Government National Examinations in Grade 3, 6, 9, and Matric. Registration Number: DET REG. No. A26407 and for our examinations GDE Centre No. 132241

It was finally resolved that Freedom Community College focus exclusively on Science, Economic & Management Sciences, and Humanities.
