BOYS HIGH SCHOOL

The Torah Academy Boys' High School is a school like no other. In this warm and nurturing environment, every student is encouraged to excel in all aspects of his life. The boys in our school learn not only through Seforim and textbooks, but through our regular extracurricular activities including: an array of guest speakers, monthly community service, personal development programme's and more.
Our teachers are not only superb in the classroom, but they also teach through example.  Students develop real and meaningful relationships with their teachers who are looked up to as role models and
guides for life. The boys interact and compete with students from other top schools on the sports field, through Olympiads, Quizzes, Public Speaking and social events and they always make us proud.
Torah Academy Boys' High school is a happy place where Yiddishkeit comes alive and where students, staff and parents work together for each and every child's individual success

GDE VERSUS IEB 
WE DO A GDE MATRIC 
WHY? 
Ieb written by 172 independent schools 
Gde – 500+ schools (independent and other) 
Both examination bodies are required to use the nsc 
(national curriculum statement) which governs the content of all subjects and examinations countrywide. 
Both examination systems issue the identical 
Certificate – the national senior certificate. This 
Certificate has no indication as to the school,system or examination body which managed the matric examination. 
The identical point systems and entrance criteria apply 
To students who write the ieb and national education matric. 
International universities recognize the nsc and do 
Not differentiate between the ieb and national matric.
