Is your child overwhelmed and disinterested in the traditional schooling system?
At UCT Online High School, we know that no two learners are the same. We provide the structure that allows our learners to excel according to their own strengths and capabilities. No learner should ever be bored (because spending hours sitting in a class that you’ve already mastered is as pointless as a broken pencil) and no learner should ever get left behind.
Are you concerned about the safety of your child at mainstream schools?
Take back control of your child’s education and create a learning environment that best suits them. UCT Online High School also educates guardians on how to effectively oversee their high school learners, and we equip guardians with the visibility and tools to intervene if necessary. Did you know we have a mobile app?
Is your child facing social and academic challenges in their current school?
Our aspirational Subject Specialists and Learning Facilitators unpack concepts in dynamic pre-recorded videos that learners can rewatch until they have that “aha” moment. If learners want to go deeper, subject specialists encourage the use of forums and Ask Me Anything sessions where pre-curated questions are answered for the benefit of all.
Does your child experience anxiety and prefer online schooling?
UCT Online High School puts learners first by placing them in the centre of their very own superhero movie. Our multi-layered support system gives them all the encouragement, tools and support they need to master their own destiny. Having a bad day is par for the course, but having too many can take you off course. Our incredible Support Coaches are there to motivate and encourage learning habits that make the difference.

What people are saying about us
This is how it works
Intuitive Online Learning Platform
Our Online Campus is at the centre of it all. Every day, your child logs in and sees their weekly work plan; a live, interactive view of everything they need to complete in a week, for every subject. It’s the most comprehensive timetable they’ll ever need!
Every subject is designed as a course, with a defined learning pathway. Learners work through each week’s module in a series of 45 minute lessons using a research-backed approach: “I do, We do, You Do”.
"I do, We do, You do"
Under “I do”, a subject expert will always demonstrate. Under “We do”, there is an opportunity to practice, and then under “You do”, learners get an opportunity to put their learning to the test — and all towards a weekly deadline for each subject.
Dynamic Academic Support
Where learners fail their weekly assessments or get stuck, they have access to weekly live streams with Learning Facilitators and a dedicated academic discussion forum. It’s a very structured approach, but with all the flexibility in between.
