Welcome to

Protea Heights Academy

Principal's Welcome

Protea Heights Academy opened its doors in 2015. We are a dual medium school (English and Afrikaans) with a focus on Mathematics and the Sciences.

Our mission is to provide a rigorous and technologically enhanced curriculum that will inspire creative, critical and analytical thinking, and to prepare learners to be productive and successful citizens who have higher-level critical thinking skills needed to solve problems in the real world.

We are passionate about teaching and making a difference in the learners’ lives. We wish to develop young people to have the confidence and skills needed to compete and make a difference in the ever-changing landscape of South Africa. We believe this is done by exposing each learner to sport, culture and leadership opportunities, as well as giving them an excellent academic education.

About Us

In 2023, we are embracing the theme of “UNLIMITED.” This theme encapsulates our belief in the boundless potential of our students and the endless possibilities that await them. As we embark on this exciting journey, we are committed to empowering our students to break barriers, challenge norms, and reach heights that were once thought unattainable.

Our rigorous curriculum is designed to provide a solid foundation in Mathematics and Science while nurturing well-rounded individuals. Our dedicated educators employ innovative teaching methodologies, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to thrive academically.

Beyond academics, we place a strong emphasis on holistic development. Our diverse extracurricular activities, including clubs, societies, and sport, enable students to explore their passions, develop leadership skills, and make meaningful contributions to their communities.

We invite you to explore our website further to learn more about our dynamic school community and the exceptional opportunities at Protea Heights Academy. Together, let’s unlock the UNLIMITED potential within each student and pave the way for a brighter, more innovative future.

Welcome to a world of UNLIMITED possibilities at Protea Heights Academy!

Mathematics and Science

Being Mathematics and Science focus creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. We do not ask our learners what they will become or do after completing their studies, but rather what problems they are going to solve.

 Learners actively participate in at least one club or society, as well as one sport, each term. 

Promote diversity and inclusivity to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to excel in STEM fields.

All learners are required to select a science subject during their Further Education and Training (FET) phase as part of their National Senior Certificate (NSC) curriculum.

As a STEM school, PHA often employs innovative teaching techniques, such as flipped classrooms, collaborative learning, and integration of technology to enhance learning experiences.
