UCT Online High School's Mission

To accelerate access to world-class high school education, so that we can unleash South Africa's potential.

Who are we?

We’re a team of mothers, fathers, dreamers, innovators, and believers. Just like you, we want the best for our children.

We don’t just believe in a brighter future; we believe in doing everything we can to make it happen.

We partner for impact

We believe in the power of collaboration as we seek to offer high quality education for all. We’ve teamed up with some incredible partners who support us in turning physical limitations into digital opportunities.
