Entrance Exams

In the case of Grade 8 pupils, an entrance exam must be written. The exam includes the testing of English and Mathematical skills. These exams will be written at Maritzburg Christian School on a designated day in May every year.  However, should a pupil have missed this opportunity, arrangements can be made with the admissions secretary to write the exams thereafter.

In the case of pupils entering Grades 9-12, the Principal will base her acceptance on the presentation of recent school reports and feedback from the learner’s previous school. Entrance/placement exams will be at the Admissions Co-Ordinator’s discretion.

Each applicant will get the opportunity to meet with our Principal or one of our Head of Departments.

*Upon acceptance, an admissions fee of R2400.00 is due prior to learners enrollment.
