The College aims to seek out and nurture the gifts and abilities of every single student, enabling and encouraging them to continue acquiring the skills, knowledge, selfconfidence and articulateness needed to enable them to be a productive, capable and responsible member of society.

Set on the outskirts of Makhado bordered on two sides by pristine acacia bush veldt, the college campus looks out towards the Soutpansberg mountain range,  providing a metaphor for our style of education; “which from the intimacy of a small school looks out to the wider world and the heights to which our students aspire.”

We offer the South African IEB which aims to make our students problem solvers, lifelong learners, society members respectful of diversity, particularly in a global context, creative and reflective thinkers in preparation for tertiary education and the job place. The IEB is benchmarked at AS level and provides South Africans with a unique qualification that is accepted by Universities around the world.

The IEB also offers Advanced Programme (AP) Mathematics.  The first AP Physical Science exam will be introduced in 2021.  The advanced programs are aimed at gifted learners.
