About us

Think Digital College (TDC) is the first virtual school in South Africa providing both the South African and British International aligned curricula.

Our content is presented in an interactive, engaging and effective way. Our aim is to produce young adults who are innovative, creative and independent in their thinking, who have courage, perseverance and resilience and who believe in themselves and their potential.

Our name derives from our strong belief that thinking is one of the most important skills a child can be taught.  We have so much information at our finger tips, but we need to learn how to think creatively in order to use this information to plan, design, innovate – for anything new!

With Think, all this and more is possible.  Instead of being forced to turn off your devices and pack them away during school, we encourage you to utilise them to enhance your learning experience by accessing the highest quality content. You are living in the most exciting times and your education has now caught up with Think Digital College.

Think Digital College is registered with the South African Comprehensive Assessment Institute (SACAI). We are not a registered Cambridge school but prepare students for their final international GCSE and AS examinations. Because our students are dispersed throughout the world, they write their final GCSE, AS and A level exams at any British International exam centre.

Please note, although Think Digital College develops our own content, we do make use of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).

What if …

  • You could complete school from anywhere in the world
  • Your curriculum and assessments came alive on your tablet through animation and video
  • School was fun, engaging, innovative and interactive
  • You could join an online community of students and communicate virtually with your classmates

Our focus areas

The mission of Think is to incorporate sound pedagogy (the art and science of learning) and state-of-the-art technology to foster creativity, growth, and learning.  Think aims to achieve excellence in education through an individual and holistic approach and to instill a love for learning in our students.

Why Think Digital College?

For generations, we have grown up in classrooms where we learnt the same information at the same pace, regardless of our interests or needs. Global interconnectivity through technology has transformed the world and yet many of our schools are still following traditional teaching methods. With Think Digital College you can quickly advance in subjects that interest you most and get as much help as you need in your more challenging areas. All you need is a laptop or tablet and an internet connection.
