School & Boarding Fees

School and Boarding fees are compulsory, and the Owner determines the amount of school fees raised for a year.
South Coast Academy is a registered N.P.O. , independent institution (Private) with an annual budget dependent upon school fees for operating expenses.
Attendance at a private school is a privilege and a commitment that involves expense.
Parents who thus enroll their children in our school are liable for the payment of the school fees. Failure to pay school fees could result in termination of classes or even examinations. Report cards and all relevant information can be withheld if school fees are not paid. School fees are payable in full at the beginning of the year before 15 January or a payment structure of 11 months, which is due before the 15th of each month.

In accordance with the SA School Act 84 of 1996, it is a legal requirement of parents/guardians to pay school fees that have been set out and agreed upon by the Governing Body. School fees are due and payable on the first day of school, however the governing body will allow payments in instalments on a debit order system to parents. The payment method chosen has to be adhered to by the parent and if deviated will result in the re-negotiation of contracts.
