Learners follow a prescribed curriculum in Grade 8 and Grade 9. This comprises the following learning areas:
- Language, Literacy and Communication – English and Afrikaans.
- Natural Sciences
- Social Sciences
- Economic & Management Science
- Life Orientation
- Arts & Culture
Jeppe Girls is in the unique position of being able to offer specialised education as part of the Arts and Culture course. In addition to their Art and Culture lessons each week, Grade 8 and 9 learners are given the choice of either specialising in the visual arts or in music. Jeppe High School for Girls is one of the few state-aided schools that provide this option.
At the end of Grade 9, learners complete their General Education Training phase, which is an exit point from academic education.
