Established in 2008, Jacobs Well Village is a Non-Profit Company (NPC) and a Non-Governmental Organisation.
We believe that if we teach, develop, love and nurture we shall see the rising of athletes and artists, librarians and lawyers, presidents and preachers, teachers and technicians, nurses and nuclear scientists and much more. They will become the leaders who serve and transform their communities and continents.
In Jacobs Well School, implementing Whole Person Development®, we develop, educate and mentor children as individuals academically, emotionally and spiritually to fulfil their life callings as responsible, educated and balanced young leaders in society, to serve and transform their communities.
Our definition of a good education is that every learner should be equipped with academic, vocational, creative, personal, emotional, leadership and other life skills to serve in their communities, whether home, workplace or university.
Jacobs Well Education does not discriminate on the grounds of gender, race or religion. We follow Biblical principles.
Our first High School, Tzuria Learning Centre, was established in 2008 in Centurion, Pretoria. Over the years we have mostly had 100% Matric pass rate.
Our Benoni campus, established in 2017, has a Pre-School, Primary School, High School and Vocational Skills Academy.
All Jacobs Well Education is registered and accredited. Tzuria Learning Centre is registered with the Gauteng Dept of Education: Registration No 700400807. We follow the CAPS curriculum. Learners write the Umaluzi Senior Certificate in Matric. Our teachers are SACE registered.
We believe that lower teacher : learner ratio’s enables us to give individual attention to each child.
We also make use of Teacher’s assistants.
The colours of Jacobs Well Education is blue and white. We allow our children to wear denims and golf shirts. We will have logos available for sale to put onto the shirt and jacket.
We offer the CAPS Curriculum using text books as advised by the Gauteng Dept of Education. Learners are offered the normal academic schooling to prepare for university entrance to train for a profession. Learners who want to receive University Degrees are led to choose the right subjects for applications into their respective fields. The subjects we offer are:

The leaders of Jacobs Well Village have connections with the Finnish Education System, regarded as the best in the world and follow some of their principles.
We have annual volunteers from Finland’s Tampere University who visit our schools and do fun educational interventions with the learners.
We currently implement the following elements of the Finnish Education system:
We envisage implementation of an exchange system where our learners, students and teachers will visit Finland. Finnish learners, students and teachers will visit South Africa.
An application for enrolment form is available on the internet. The fully completed form is emailed or handed in at the office. We approve enrolment of learners on an individual basis only after an interview.
Teachers, mentors and learners should demonstrate the following principles
True education takes place constantly, regardless of time or place for children learn by what they live. General knowledge, behaviour patterns, respect, gratefulness, orderliness and discipline of the child are the responsibilities of the parent, not the education system. Jacobs Well Schools will endorse and support all of the above while a learner is on our premises. When a learner transgresses Jacobs Well Schools’ code of conduct, we expect the parent to endorse and support us.
We undertake to communicate openly regarding problems experienced by learners. Our teachers and mentors are dedicated and experienced youth workers who have helped many children and their parents. Should a parent have a problem with the mentors of Jacobs Well Schools, we value the same open discussion.
Registrations forms can be emailed or downloaded from the website. Places are limited so please register your child as soon as possible to secure your place.
