The University of Cape Town yesterday launched’s Africa and South Africa’s first online High School.

UCT partnered with Cape Town-based education technology company, Valenture Institute to make this platform a reality.

Learners in Grades 8 and 9 will have direct access to 10 subjects while grade 10, 11 and 12 learners will be able to access learning resources in up to 14 subjects.

Valenture Institute CEO, Robert Paddock says the online-school, unlike traditional schooling, allows learners to master subjects and concepts at their own pace.

Paddock says admissions for the UCT Online High School open on 21 July 2021, with classes commencing in January 2022.
