Since 2005 Glow Academy has helped students from Grade 1 to Grade 12 work towards an internationally recognised school-leaving certificate. Our highly personalised approach is ideal for students who prefer a less formal environment in which they can find their own voice and develop a strong self-directed learning capability which will stand them in good stead in the real world. We are situated in the picturesque suburb of Noordheuwel in Krugersdorp.

Parents are drawn to Glow Academy by its culture of kindness and spiritual backbone. When kids arrive in the morning they are personally greeted by the tutor on duty, and walk into a home that smells of coffee and Patricia's favourite pine gel. Kettle, microwave and fridge are open to be used as they would be at home. Our three dogs are an essential part of the experience, often guiding us to the child that needs a bit of special care that day. If a child needs a power nap? We have many couches! And the spectacular view from our verandah over the Cradle of Humankind lifts every spirit.

Our community is designed to appreciate the diversity in age, gender, and cultural and financial backgrounds of our students. Our younger students have the advantage of daily interaction with older "brothers and sisters" who look out for them. Cliques, fads and bullying have no toehold in our intimate family. Unhappiness is quickly spotted and addressed.

Class time is balanced by lots of playtime in our huge yard. This may involve balls, dogs, tyres, sticks, stones, bugs, rough-and-tumble, a veggie garden and lots of laughter. We start the day at 08h00, break at 09h30 for 30 minutes. Second break is at 11h30 till 12h00, and we finish the day at 12h45.
