“When I think about the learner that walks through our virtual doors and will one day graduate from UCT Online High School, I am filled with pride and excitement at the opportunity we have been privileged and positioned to provide to them. At UCT Online High School, we are intentional about our vision to give each learner an educational experience that prepares them for a future of endless and exciting possibilities. They will be critical, independent thinkers who celebrate their individuality whilst appreciating the power of collaboration.
