Quality schooling in Jeffreys Bay


JBay Academy is in the business of educating humans young and old. But we’re all about quality. When you sign up with us, expect education of the highest caliber. We offer your child (or you) personal attention in a small setting, which means that growth is guaranteed.

JBay Academy was started in 2009, when Renette Matthee and Stephanie Pienaar realised that their own children needed more than what a main stream school could offer. They converted a living room into a “school” and with great excitement bought a white board and gathered around the dining room table. Their children were eager and hard-working and the two moms immediately noticed a difference in their work and behaviour.
Each learner worked at their own pace and it wasn’t long before their marks showed significant improvement. The learners became more confident and with inquiring minds, they surprised their “tutors” and themselves every day. They went on excursions and made sure the learners became balanced self-assured young adults. After a while more parents with the same vision for their children contacted the school and the class grew to six learners. Four years later they all matriculated, some with matric exemption.
