    Thanks for the bursary

    The bursary that you gave me saved the day. I was stranded at home with no one to turn to. Thanks for the new lease of life you have afforded me. I am now completing my Mechanical engineering course. The future looks brighter.

    Great School, wonderful lecturers

    Your lecturers are not only kind but they are also focussed on the task of educating us. This plus the facilities at the college have made Crane International Academy a great school indeed. It is a school I recommend to any young person seeking success and a bright future.

    The Accomodation came handy

    Am from Ermelo and without the accomodation organised by the college I would not be at school now. But because of the great organisation by Crane International Academy I am furthering my education hundreds of kilometres away from home. But, I am not worried because the college made my accomodation possible.
