Catholic Education

Your children are our future...

Dear parent

The contemporary South African landscape demands quality education for a better tomorrow, as well as a holistic human formation which promotes a total development of the individual. Learners must mature in character as well as intellect and acquire the skills that will both improve their own lives, as well as the lives of others and the world around them.



The Archdiocese of Durban is blessed to have within its territory many Catholic Schools that carry forward in their educational mission what the South African situation requires as well as the very best of what the Gospel has to offer the youth of today. Each school has a chaplain assigned who is dedicated to this task and who is committed to the pastoral care of all staff and pupils.



Parents looking for Catholic Schools (Christian Ethos Schools), please feel free to connect with some of our Durban-based schools below via the web links provided…

“Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another.”

Hon. Nelson R. Mandela (President of South Africa, 1994-1999)
