Orel Private Academy was established by Mrs. Irma Fourie, a visionary, who realized that it was never enough to just complete syllabi and declare students ready for the world. Her vision of education as a word-changing force came out of this realization. Unless students were prepared to become rounded individuals, education would have failed in its duty. Orel Private Academy was founded to create a center for quality all-round education.

We are a new private educational independent school in Kimberley, Northern Cape. We have started with 18 Grade 1 learners in 2016.
