“My son started at Carpe Diem Academy in the second term of 2021 (grade 11).  He couldn’t cope in the main stream school system of a well-known school in Pretoria East…Carpe Diem Academy walked the extra mile together with my child.  He is a happy young man and he looks forward to go to school every morning…Thank you Carpe Diem Academy for accepting my child in your school – it made a big difference in his life.”

When my child was at his lowest point in live and needed a helping hand other Schools refused to take him because off his grades even though it was low due to a medical condition.
Not Carpe Diem Academy. They welcomed him in with open arms together they worked and achieved an amazing goal. We will be forever gratefully. The Berner Family

We were so happy and blessed to have found this school. They have done absolutely wonders for my boys Aiden and Slade. Aiden was very unhappy in his previous school and since we moved him to Carpe Diem he absolutely flourished and we were so proud that he actually finished Matric. We then decided to move Slade over in grade 10 and he couldn't wait to start there. He is now doing excellent in school and absolutely amazing in his sports. Moving my boys to Carpe Diem was the best decision we made.
Thank you guys for all u have done for my boys❤❤
