Let your children “attend” school from home! That’s right, as long as you have an internet connection, school students can attend classes from anywhere! We offer three different options

Cyber School has, since its inception in October 2011 provided a comprehensive teaching service 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 teachers to help you teach your children with scheduled live classroom sessions according to a full time timetable, via the internet. We connect teachers 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 most students simply cannot do home schooling on a self study basis, you have found the right solution!
The following information focuses on the needs of grade 5 learners through to a “matric replacement”.
We provide learners with a timetable that is followed strictly by the teachers. 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! Teachers 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/assessments.
Students and teachers 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 teacher’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 teacher.
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. 08h00-13h00, Johannesburg time. Of course, regular breaks between lessons occur and classes are not continuous during those hours.
Daily school class 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.
This means students are able to attend school from anywhere in the world!

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 a fully complete and comprehensive program that covers a full school day. See the Curriculum section for more info.
We are therefore not technically a school, but are an educational service that offers comprehensive teaching with experienced, qualified teachers via the internet. This teaching is delivered in a structured school day timetable format that will assist in teaching your child. To read up more about the curriculum and teachers, see the Curriculum section.
Is your child not a first language English speaker? Or is your child’s poor English holding him or her back? See the Curriculum section for a solution!
