Waterberg Academy is an English Medium independent school founded in 2003, in the heart of the UNESCO Waterberg Biosphere Reserve in the small town of Vaalwater (Mabatlane), Limpopo, South Africa. Born out of a desire to take the best from traditional schooling, and combine this with critical elements that are sometimes overlooked, we are committed to an education informed by environmental, social and economic responsibility.
Today’s independent schools are highly competitive environments. Learners are required to perform at a high level socially, academically and on the sports field in order to find acceptance and value from both peer and school. We value above all the importance of creating a safe, structured environment in which impressionable young people can grow in self confidence and self-knowledge.
