• The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls

    We're an independent boarding school, founded by Oprah Winfrey to provide world-class education to previously disadvantaged girls in South Africa from Grade 8 to Grade 12.

  • We're Celebrating

    10 Years

    of Educating Young Women to Impact, Influence and Inspire their World.


We strive to raise future leaders who are able to navigate a variety of social and cultural contexts, and who will remain committed to the development of South Africa and the African continent.
