Northern Academy has a wonderful history, of which we are very proud. The school started in 1994, when there were only two Grade 1 classes, with 88 students. During October 1994 , Mr. Neuhoff, the founder, bought the premises in Suid Street and started to build Northern- Academy Primary.
January 1996 we already had Grade 1 - 6, and two months later the first principal, Mrs. V. Dickenson, was appointed. During this year there were approximately 900 students.
In 2013 Northern Academy was taken over by the NPO, Meridian Operations Company. An additional campus was completed where the Grade 10, 11 and 12 students are accommodated in 2014.
Today, 2014, the school has grown to over 4800 students, 134 classrooms and 66 hostels.

Show Private Schools. We show private schools detail from all over South Africa because you need to find the best school for your child. We include the telephone number as well as when available the website link.
The South African Schools Act (SASA) of 1996 established a national schooling system and recognised two categories of schools: public and independent. Public schools are state controlled and independent schools are privately governed. All private schools were included into the independent school category.
