Benoni Christian School began operating at the beginning of 1996
in answer to a rapidly growing need for teaching in an
environment of biblical morality and ethics in a society
becoming increasingly secular. These same principles are applied
to this day. The original curriculum used wa provided by the
School of Tomorrow's Accelerated Christian Education (ACE)
system which taught learners to study individually at a pace
suitable for their own ability and temperament. When the
National Department of Education began to streamline the
education system the board of Benoni Christian School, after
consulting with parents, adopted the public school system's
curriculum but added to it as the need arose.
Since its inception, Benoni Christian School has had a 100 per
cent matric pass rate. A number of learners have excelled at
Mathematics Olympiads, resulting in offers of bursaries from
American universities. The focus on smaller classes, and hence
greater individual assistance, has the advantage that learners
can be aided effectively to gain maximum benefit from such
attention. From its humble beginnings of just five learners and
one teacher, the school has grown to an average learner body of
ninety students with a dedicated academic staff of seventeen.
There is room for growth and the school can accommodate more
The high motivation of the school's staff to achieve excellence
in student learning has been of great benefit for learners.
Being a non-profit organisation, teachers forgo a number of the
privileges of those in the public school system, motivated by
their love for Christ and the growth of their learners.
The school continues to perform its function under the guidance
of a board of trustees and a governing body. Progress,
development and excellence are constantly scrutinised in order
to maintain the high standards which the school practices in
keeping with the school motto "Strive towards the truth".
