A word from UCT's Vice Chancellor

As an inclusive and innovative African institution, the University of Cape Town is committed to playing its part in addressing the systemic challenges facing our education system. As a result, we have taken the bold step to launch an innovative online high school in January 2022, where our academic excellence can be extended to high school learners across the country. Our youth are our future. UCT Online High School will enable learners to choose an aspirational school, which will unleash their potential to transform our country and the world.
