About IVA School Online

IVA School Online provides students the opportunity to attain an excellent education through an online platform.

Their offering is holistic, more efficient and student productivity levels are heightened. Coupled with excellent educators, IVA wanted to make sure that they were engaging the students in ways that are current and meaningful to them. They created a 3D virtual platform where all teachers and students are avatars in a virtual world where teaching and learning takes place.

Their main purpose is to demonstrate that education outcomes and goals can be achieved at very high levels without the exorbitant fees that parents are having to pay for a premium education. IVA’s fees are a fraction of some of the top schools and yet their teachers are amongst the best in the country and their offering goes beyond teaching and learning of subjects making it holistic and meaningful.

In South Africa, IVA Global Online school hopes to make difference in the lives of thousands of children in 3 to 5 years’ time. IVA Global hopes to be operating in other Southern African countries as well as the UK globally.
