General Studies Boys High

Yeshiva College occupies a unique niche in the world of Independent High schools.

As a Religious Jewish school, everything that we do is informed by our ethos and values.

Our unique offering encompases a dual curriculum, devoting approximately 30 % of our day to Limudei Kodesh. However, we do not allow this focus to distract us from a total dedication to competing academically with the top academic schools. It is an extremely important focus in the High School that we attract and keep the best teachers available. At Yeshiva College, we place a great deal of emphasis on academic excellence and developing the whole learner. This is evident in our outstanding matric results and the contribution that our graduates go on to make to the world around them. Over the past six years, because of a concentrated vision of all round excellence, we have seen a drastic improvement in our matric results. We are extremely proud of our consistent 100% matric pass rate and we are particularly excited about the fact that in 2014, as well as attaining an average of 3,92 distinction per matric candidate, we also achieved 100% University Entrance, affording all of our graduating class, the privilege of being eligible to go to university if they so desire.

We also offer a wide variety of subjects in the General Studies sector, taking into account the different career paths our learners might wish to pursue as well as the different academic abilities within the learner population.

  • English
