Submitting an application to Christel House does not guarantee placement for your child. We only have a limited number of spaces available per year. Please ensure that you apply to and accept placements from other schools for your child. If your child is accepted into Christel House,
a staff member will inform you telephonically and send you an official letter of acceptance. Once approved, we will assist you to change your
child’s placement from another school to Christel House. Christel House South Africa reserves the right to disqualify an application at any time during the admissions process should the application not meet the admissions criteria. All documentation requested has to accompany each application.  

We don't just educate, feed, provide healthcare or help your child into a great career - we do all these things.
