Our South African Schools

Our Students

Nova Pioneer was started with the idea to create schools in which young people will grow to shape the world and not just work in it. Our mission is to develop the innovators and leaders who will shape the African century. Nova Pioneer students are academically engaged, embrace challenges, and aren’t afraid to try new things. Nova Pioneer students don’t just sit passively in the classroom—they build models and prototypes, they experiment, and work collaboratively in teams to solve problems.

Learning at Nova Pioneer

Nova Pioneer’s unique approach to education will make you reimagine what is possible for your child. Nova Pioneer brings a rigorous and innovative approach to education that focuses on developing each individual’s full potential. Our students learn the material they need to excel at exams through methods that simultaneously develop the critical thinking, creativity, and strength of character that they will need to build successful and fulfilling careers in today’s world.

The Nova Pioneer Way

Our founding question at Nova Pioneer has been, ‘What capabilities will young people on this continent need to succeed in and shape the future that they will encounter, and what approaches to education will best develop those capabilities?
