Admissions Overview

In our pursuit of academic excellence, Waterberg Academy requires prospective scholars to undergo an entrance assessment.

Ancillary to that, an essential requirement is that your child will endeavour to make the most of the many opportunities provided by the school and will contribute in a meaningful way to the school.
