Our Stories

We are expanding in 2025

We are proud to announce a significant milestone in our expansion plans. Recognising the pressing need for more High Schools in the Western Cape and the imperative for educational equity nationwide, our first expansion project is a new High School at our existing campus in Ottery in 2025.

With a strategic vision to establish three new schools within the next five years, Christel House South Africa aligns our expansion efforts with that of Christel House International. On a global level, expanding the number of Christel House institutions in current and new countries is a strategic priority.

Admissions for new students

The 2025 expansion project will be phased, starting with two Grade 8 classes in 2025. Christel House SA will continue recruiting Grade 8 students every subsequent year, filling the new High School in the coming years.  While construction occurs, temporary classrooms will deliver the quality and holistic education model that Christel House is synonymous with.

Our application process for Grade 8 2025 admissions is open until 6 May 2024. Please read our qualifying criteria and apply here: https://sa.christelhouse.org/our-programs/student-applications/

Vacancies for new teachers

We are recruiting teachers for the new High School. Please see all of our vacancies here: https://sa.christelhouse.org/about-us/vacancies/


The expansion project will require collaboration and support from partners and the entire Christel House SA community. Partnerships ensure effective, holistic, long-term, sustainable development.
