What we Believe

We believe that learning is a journey of exploration, a collaboration between learner and teacher,
inspired by curiosity, guided by professional insight and commitment,
grounded in community values and focused on the natural development of each child’s potential.

A unique education

Broadacres Academy is an affordable private school conveniently situated in the greater Fourways area of Johannesburg, Gauteng.

The school is nearby to the suburbs of Lonehill, Fourways, Chartwell and Dainfern, and is set on seven acres in the growing suburb of Broadacres.

Exciting new developments

Exciting developments are taking place and we have broken ground on a new chapter in the school’s history. Building is under way and our new Prep School will be ready at the start of 2018.

The Academy currently includes a Preschool (crèche to 5-year-olds), a Preparatory School (Grade 0 – Grade 3) and a Tutor Centre for registered homeschoolers (Grade 7 – Grade 12).

From January 2018, our new Grade 4 class will be open.  Learn more about the admissions process here.

Broadacres Academy is unique because of the constructivist way in which we deliver the curriculum, ensuring that children retain their natural love of learning.

The school has a contemporary farm feel, ensuring that children have a natural and stress-free environment in which to learn.

Where children learn, naturally

At Broadacres Academy, we live by the beliefs set out in our manifesto.

We believe that children are born with a natural desire and ability to learn. We aim to take children on a journey where their love for learning never diminishes.

Broadacres Academy provides a unique learning environment. We nurture life-long learners, encouraging children to explore and discover by encouraging their natural curiosity to drive their learning.

Our Academy is set in a relaxed country environment that develops children who can appreciate nature and learn without fear.

Our classes are small, and this allows our professional teachers to guide and facilitate the learning process in a collaborative way.

Children enjoy individual and personalised attention from our qualified and committed teachers. This ensures a solid grounding, and develops all the necessary skills and a love of learning.

We strive to uphold the values of our community. We instil in children the importance of moral and ethical values of kindness, integrity, empathy, courtesy, love for their environment and compassion.

Our slogan embodies what happens in Broadacres Academy daily; it is a school ‘Where children learn, naturally’.
