After the Lord gave Pastor Jan van der Westhuizen (founder) the vision to start a Christian School in this area, Sunward Christian Academy was established in 2000. After Pastor Jan van der Westhuizen’s passing his son, Mr. Leon van der Westhuizen took over and is our current principal. We opened the school in faith and constantly thank God for the 21 years that we could serve our community in Boksburg as a non-profit organization.

As a Christian school we train the whole child according to Proverbs 22:6.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our aim is to build a Godly character into each of our learners. Christian Education is the salt of the earth, therefore, we pray for our learners and equip them daily to be the light of the world, which God has called us to be.

SCA is a non-profit organization and we are registered as an Article 18 organization. This means that all donations to the school are tax deductible. Should you wish to have more information on this, don’t hesitate to contact our Administrator.

Sunward Christian Academy is an e-school. The Grade 4-12 learners work on tablets as well as hard copies in certain subjects. The junior learners also work on school tablets to get familiar with this technology and have fun.

Our School Diary form an important part of our educational journey and parents must read and sign it daily. All special events and dates are indicated in the diary, as well as school holidays, exam time tables. Any changes will be notified to parents in writing.
