Please download and save this document to refer to throughout your son’s assessment process.
It should answer any queries you have.

Step 2

Apply for the year you would like your son to start at Maritzburg College by clicking the relevant button below.

Once you have submitted your online application, you will receive a notification acknowledging receipt of your application and supporting documents via email.

Step 3

  • If you are applying for Grade 8, prior to the closing date, you will receive notification of acceptance/non-acceptance towards the end of April (for boarder applications) and the end of May (for day scholar applications).
  • Late Grade 8 applications will be assessed, once processed. Acceptance/non-acceptance will depend on whether (i) your son’s all-round ability meets our standards, and (ii) a place being available.
  • There is no closing date for Grades 9-12 applications. We will communicate with parents once we have processed the application.

Get Ready for College Life

Preparation for College life is an exciting time. School uniform requirements and textbook lists will be emailed to parents in advance of the start of the school term. Get in touch if you require any information before your son’s first day of school.

Important Admissions Information

Our admissions team at Maritzburg College aims to provide as much information as possible for you to have a seamless application process. Every year, we receive about 700 applications from over 160 schools and we can only accept around 40% of the day scholars and boarders who apply. Kindly take note of the following information:

  • Applications for Form 2 (Grade 8) open at the start of a boy’s Grade 6 year and close in the February of his Grade 7 year. We recommend submitting his application during his Grade 6 year.
  • Applications for Form 3 - 6 (Grade 9 - 12) may be made at any time of the year. Acceptance/ Non-Acceptance for the following year will only be confirmed in the Fourth Term.
  • No printed or emailed admissions will be accepted.
  • Late admissions will only be considered if places become available.
  • It is essential that you also apply to at least 2 other schools, as there is no guarantee that your son's application to Maritzburg College will be successful.
