Protea Heights Academy
~ Cape Town, Western Cape ~

Protea Heights Academy high school opened its doors to Grade 8 and 9 learners on 21 January 2015, and has since made history every day.

Situated on the eastern edges of the Cape Town Metropole, this dual medium school of the Western Cape Department of Education has a very specific Maths and Science focus. The Protea Heights community is very proud of a school that has been a dream of the community for many years. After construction started in 2013, the community watched with great excitement as first the building and then the staff and learners grew to a school which after only one year of operation built a formidable reputation of excellence.

While the main focus of the school is academic achievement, the committed and energetic principal and staff of the school has quickly achieved considerable success in establishing a balanced extramural programme which includes sports, culture, community involvement and heaps of fun for the learners.

The school has modern facilities and educational technology which positions it well to be a hub for e-learning and advanced teaching in Maths and Science and to empower its learners for global competitiveness.

Come join us on our exciting journey, be part of making history - every day.
