Homeschooling in South Africa

Homeschooling in South Africa

Homeschooling is alive and well in South Africa although relatively unheard of until about 10 years ago. Homeschooling has become a favoured choice by parents who want the best for their kids. Schools world wide are letting down families as a result parents are taking back their original God given duties, to train their children, teach them and protect them. I hope you find some of the contact information below useful.

If you wish to know more about homeschooling in South Africa I suggest the following,

  • Visit and read as many South African homeschooling related website’s as you can un till you have a more general idea.
  • Find a Homeschooling family or friend and meet with them first hand, ask them to advice you.
  • Have an open mind, recognise that having a degree or diploma in teaching does not make you a teacher.
  • Invest in some good books about homeschooling, or borrow some from a homeschooling friend.

  1. Good day

    I am from East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa.

    I have a small maths and physical science tutoring business for high schoolers called CAST and would like to provide this service to homeschooling learners in the area.

    I charge R420-00 per month if attending in groups.

    I was wondering if it would be possible for you to help me spread the word or if you have any suggestions for me to reach the learners.

    Kind Regards

  2. Hi,
    My husband is a enthusiastic tennis coach in Cape Town. We live in Boston, Bellville, in the Western Cape. Francois coach at a few schools, but also do a lot of group or private lessons at Chrismar Tennis-club. We don’t have any children of our own yet, but a few of our Christian friends also home-school their children. We already got a handful of home-school children taking tennis lessons with him, but as the tennis academy is only a few years old, not a lot of people know about his business yet. His tennis business name is LTD Tennis (Local Tennis Development), and you can also go unto his website at for some more info. Is it possible for you to maybe contact me or Francois, and give us a little bit of information where we can advertise the services Francois can give to enrich more home-school children? You can either contact me (his wife) on the email given above, or contact Francois at You can also give us a call at: Marien: 0762052070 Francois: 0815112015.
