WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

Kroonstad Academy is the only Cambridge private school in Kroonstad and one of only two in the Free State. It was founded when parents took the initiative in reaction to the changing educational environment in the country.

It offers the complete spectrum of education – from Grade 000 to matric with a maximum of 25 students per class. Didactics and methodics are adapted to be in line with the modern multi-cultural society and no stereotyped systems which suppress individualism are tolerated.

The Cambridge syllabus for high school students provides access to national and international tertiary institutions with a strong emphasis on work ethics which highlights students’ responsibility to themselves and to their society.

The Kroonstad Academy provides optimal development in a peaceful yet disciplined milieu with emphasis on Christian principles. Balance between academic, cultural, sporting and societal activities is of great importance to us.

All appointments are made by the management in collaboration with the headmaster and parents are regards as clients.
