St Joseph’s Preparatory and College is a brand new registered private primary and high school that opened in January 2023. Currently, St Joseph’s is the school of choice for over 210 learners from Grade R to 9. Each year, we will phase in a new Grade and will have our first batch of matriculants in 2026.

The school is located in East London along the R102, Beacon Bay (on the old Gonubie Road, across from Floradale Nursery).

St Joseph’s Preparatory and College aims to empower learners to discover their individual genius so that they can unlock their true potential and pave their way to unlimited greatness.
