Learn About Our Academics

Maritzburg Christian School offers a balanced curriculum focusing on the needs of all learners. We identify the strengths and weaknesses of all the children in our care, and concentrate on developing these areas so that each child is given the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our small classes enable our teachers to achieve this goal and to establish a nurturing relationship with each child in the class. Our children receive meaningful spiritual input every day and our teachers incorporate Christian principles into their lessons through Bible-centred teaching. God remains the most important person in our classrooms and the children are encouraged to glorify Him in whatever they do.
