The South African education system is made up of three different types of schools: independent or private; public or government; and Model C, or Former Model C schools. Private education is more expensive than public education – but can offer remarkably high standards of education. Model C schools are government schools and are administered and largely funded by the parent body. Some of the country’s best schools also fall into this category, and fees are somewhere between private and government rates.
