About us

Southern Cross is an ISASA registered co-educational day and boarding school offering pre-school, preparatory and college education to Grade 12.

In this unique environment, our learners receive an independent education that balances academic excellence, sport and culture with learning that exceeds the boundaries of the classroom.

Located in the small town of Hoedspruit in South Africa, the school enjoys impressive success in academics, sporting and cultural pursuits; but it is our unique environment that really sets us apart. We call a 1 100 hectare nature reserve home.

This means that each and every learner not only leaves school with the highest standard of education, but also with a deep love, respect and appreciation for nature and our environment.

This is the founding principle of an educational model that breaks the mould and produces future leaders who are full of character, empowered to reach their full potential, and who live their lives as informed, responsible and environmentally conscious local and global citizens.

All of our students experience rich learning with expert tuition in excellent facilities that encourage engagement, collaboration and responsibility. As a school we are also passionate, fun, creative, celebratory and industrious and unwaveringly support hard work and all the success that it promises.
