About us

Waterfall Online is a virtual school, available to students wherever there is a reliable internet connection. The school is led by experienced, specialist teachers who recognise that mental, physical and emotional wellbeing are key to quality education.

The school has grown out of Waterfall College – a small school with an incredible story. Set on the iThemba Campus in Hillcrest, a dedicated team have guided students to a 100% IEB Matric pass rate, 16 years running.

Waterfall Online makes this culture of care available beyond the campus. Our aim is to support every child to realise their potential, equipping them with the skills and confidence to navigate a rapidly changing world, and the drive to make a difference.

How will we achieve this?

  • A structured real-time programme, supervised daily by qualified teachers, will see students engaged in interactive lessons with teachers and fellow students, preparing for the NSC IEB Examinations in their Matric Year. 
  • Ongoing communication between staff, students and parents will ensure that everyone is informed and able to participate meaningfully in the learning experience.
  • Regular collaborative group sessions extend the educational experience and promote positive relationships, covering topics from academics to personal development, Christian values and community connection.
  • Teachers and guest speakers promote a positive sense of self, while encouraging students to pursue a healthy lifestyle, balancing fitness, culture, service and leadership.

This provides a platform for genuine engagement and for a sense of belonging. Every child is encouraged to contribute to the school experience.
