UCS is fortunate to have the support of many loyal and far-sighted donors.

We also receive a subsidy from the Gauteng Department of Education which accounts for approximately 25% of our income.

Thanks to these sources of funding, we are able to keep our school fees low and affordable for residents in the community. We are also able to sponsor the school fees of a number of indigent and orphaned scholars every year. In addition donors have helped establish a number of vital facilities, such as our Maths and Science Centre and our Computer Centre, which make it possible to provide critical learning to our students.
