Welcome & Overview

From small beginnings in 1988, Southcity Christian Schools has developed into what we believe is the leading school on the South Coast of KZN. Set on pristine, neat grounds with a magnificent view overlooking the Indian Ocean, we are indeed privileged to watch the whales at play and savour the ocean breeze daily. Sounds incredible – but its true!
