Cyber School has, since its inception in January 2012 provided a comprehensive tutoring
service to nearly 250 students, that offers academic guidance and assistance, yet
it is managed and functions like a school. This is in order to promote the learning
process and create a formal, well structured environment for learning to take place.
We use qualified tutors to help you teach your children with scheduled live classroom
sessions according to a full time timetable, via the internet. We connect tutors
with students that can be located anywhere and in any country, town or city, providing
they have access to broadband internet.
So if home schooling was never an option due to your time or other commitments or
you not wanting to be the only teacher, maybe it is an option now? Or if you have
realised the reality that students simply cannot do home schooling on a self study
basis, you have found the right solution!
See what some of our students say! Our
motto is simple, “To “Reach”
Students, Learning Must be Fun!”
The following information focuses on the needs of grade 5 learners through to “matric
equivalent”. If you require assistance for grades 2-4, please click here, otherwise
read farther for information for students from grade 5 onwards.
We provide learners with a timetable that is followed strictly by the tutors. If
and when a learner does not log in for a lesson the parents are emailed immediately.
So we offer a structured and disciplined school day that is attended by students
according to a prescribed timetable. For example, students will attend classes during
the day and may have English at 08h00, Maths at 09h00 and so on. All the subjects
that a student requires are offered in a comprehensive program that functions like
a traditional schooling environment, except this one is virtual! Tutors and students
connect via the internet and classes function in a group session in our virtual classroom
that includes interactive learning, questions and answers, assignments, projects,
homework and exams.
Students and tutors can communicate in real time and can listen to and watch lectures
and ask questions and conduct themselves as though they are in a live classroom session;
except this is a virtual classroom!
Lectures are delivered via the tutor’s web cam to all connected students in real
time and allows students to ask questions and interact via instant messaging that
all attendees can monitor. So all participants are linked to the same live session
simultaneously. Students do not need a webcam and only need a pc, internet and speakers
to hear and watch the tutor. We follow the South African (Gauteng Province) private
school calendar. This means school starts in January and ends in December each year.
The school term calendar is available in the Calendar section.
The school hours are typically Monday to Friday from approx. 08h00-14h00, Johannesburg
time. Of course, regular breaks between lessons occur and classes are not continuous
during those hours.
Daily school calendars for all grades are available after registration within the
student’s online calendar, as are all online exam dates, and lesson plans. This means
students can also plan ahead for classes or catch up if absent.
Students are taught by qualified, experienced tutors. They will be graded, given
assessments (tests or exams), and monitored. Attendance registers will be logged
and interaction amongst all classroom participants encouraged.
This program is designed for home schoolers and commences from grade
two and continues through high school.
This means students are able to attend school from anywhere in the world! This is
perfect for -
Children that travel with their parents and for whom fitting
in with traditional school attendance
schedules would be difficult. Great for “expats” living and
travelling all over the world!
Children that live far away from a suitable school.
Parents that want their children to avoid the hazards of traditional
school such as drugs,
violence, bullying, etc.
Parents that want a better standard of education for their
children than they can afford. In
other words, where a government school is sub standard and
yet a private school is too
expensive. Plus, there is no better way to equip your children
for the Information Age!
Children that suffer from physical disabilities or illnesses
that make attending traditional schools
that don't cater for their unique circumstances too difficult.
Parents that want greater control over the quality of their
children's education and aren't
qualified to offer that degree of education via home schooling,
or don't have sufficient time or
are not inclined or able to become involved to the extent
that may be required.
Parents that want their children removed from a situation
of persecution or negative
influences, including bullying.
Children that live in countries or jurisdictions where the
quality of education is sub standard
and they feel the need for them to receive a higher standard
Parents with strong views regarding religious principles
or moral values, or that want to
control the type or amount of religious instruction that
their children receive. (We offer no
religious instruction and that is left to the parent’s discretion).
Parents with children that are permanently involved in
sports, music, travel, acting or
another activity that prevents them from attending traditional
Our service is designed to supplement what a home schooling
parent is already teaching his or
her child. We must stress that legally, you as the parent
are still responsible for home schooling
your child up to grade 9, where after schooling is no longer
mandatory. What we offer is very
comprehensive and is designed to complement what you are
doing. We offer a fully complete
and comprehensive program that covers a full school day.

We are therefore not technically a school, but are an educational
service that offers
comprehensive tutoring with experienced, qualified tutors
via the internet. This tutoring is
delivered in a structured school day timetable format that
