Michaelis Private School is a private educational institution, governed by a constitutionally elected Board. The School addresses the formal educational needs of Christian families.

A child’s education is ultimately the responsibility of the parents. The school exists to assist the parents with this task. We believe that optimal development occurs when the family, church and school work together towards the wellbeing of the child. We endeavour at all times to provide a Christian school environment. Our aim is to promote and foster the English and German language within the South African context.


Criteria for Admission:


  1. Michaelis is a Christian School and all children are expected to participate in the activities, which make up the Christian curriculum.

Explanations Re: Criteria


1.     Waiting List

 Michaelis Private School can currently admit 24 pupils per grade from Grade RR to Grade 7

The school will therefore work on a waiting list principle, whereby applicants who have applied and

fulfilled all other criteria will be admitted according to the order in which they appear on the waiting


 Priority on the waiting list will be given to children who:

·         Belong to the “Evangelische Lutherische Kirche”

·         Michaelis Kindergarten students will get a preference.

·         Children who have siblings at the school already.

2.     Assessment

Applicants in all grades will be thoroughly assessed. 

·         Children entering Grade 1 will be assessed by an external therapist.

·         Grade 2 – 7 will undergo an interview with the Head as well as an age appropriate assessment consisting of English and Mathematics.

If it is visible after the assessment that the child will not cope in the grade that they are applying for, they will have the opportunity to re-apply for the lower grade, subject to availability of space and age.
