We believe that if we teach, develop, love, nurture and not only feed
If we give as much as we would give to our very own
We shall see the rising of athletes and artists, librarians and lawyers, presidents and preachers, teachers and technicians, nurses and nuclear scientists who become leaders who serve and transform their communities.
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 Schools are multi-lingual and do not discriminate on the grounds of gender, race or religion. We follow Biblical principles.
Our first school was established in 2008 in Valhalla, Centurion, Pretoria. Benoni is our second High School. A Pre-School for Early Childhood Development was established in 2012 in Raslouw, Centurion.
We make use of teachers and assistants so that the ratio remains 1:20.
Learners wear a branded golf shirt (available at the school @ +-R130) with denim jeans and tekkies. In winter branded jerseys and windbreakers will be added.
Jacobs Well Schools encourage mentor-protégé relationships of trust. In this process more skilled and experienced mentor leads, teaches, counsels and encourages the protégé to complete their assignments in the context of ongoing nurturing, within a disciplined framework. We therefore have teachers that are passionate about children and have a calling for education.
Learners are encouraged to share their joyous and painful experiences with their mentors. Jacobs Well Schools are associated with registered counsellors who help not only our learners, but also their families. Professionals we trust can help assess IQ, interest and aptitude to determine study directions for learners at reasonable costs.
Jacobs Well Schools offers an option that is different from the normal classroom situation to provide individualised facilitation as learners progress at their own pace. Though the classroom has an informal atmosphere, it is a disciplined educational environment.

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.
