Harvest Christian School also reserves the right to offer all content from a Biblical Worldview in order to give expression to the beliefs that are contained in our vision.

Harvest Christian School is a well established primary school.
We are affiliated with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International)
The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) exists to strengthen Christian Schools and equip Christian educators worldwide as they prepare students academically and inspire them to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
We also have our full UMALUSI Accreditation.
Umalusi is mandated to accredit private providers of education and training, and assessment bodies. The accreditation process is closely linked and dependent on the process of registration with the state which private providers of education and training
Registration grants the private provider the license to operate in South Africa. Accreditation on the other hand is a status granted to a private provider at the end of a quality assurance process and attests to the quality of provision offered.
How soon should I put in my application before the required admission year?
Unlike Government schools, we do not open and close our admissions on particular dates. We remain open for admissions the whole year. We only close admissions once particular grades are full. However, it is in your best interests to make application as soon as possible to ensure that your child is enrolled at school.
How many terms do we have per year?
We work on 4 terms, for the purpose of participating with other schools in sport and culture.
Therefore, our term dates are very similar to that of the government schools.
How many learners are there per class?
We will not have more than 22 learners per class. We would rather open a new class than have classes that are over-full. This gives the advantage of individualised attention to the children, and ensures that any problems are picked up earlier.
Do we have an aftercare?
Yes, we do have an aftercare facility. It is run on our school premises. This is however privately run, so fees are not included in the school fees. IT runs from after school until 17h30 daily. Students are given lunch and juice afterschool and homework is supervised.
Holiday care is also offered.
