South African Girls’ Schools Association (SAGSA) is an association of girls’ schools, both public and private, across South Africa, all of whom have the common goal of educating young women to become strong leaders of the future. Membership of the association is open to all girls’ schools. Our current membership is 85 girls’ schools who represent diversity, history and quality girls’ school education across 7 provinces. Our aim is to be able to include all girls’ schools across South Africa.

A major focus of SAGSA is to grow, develop and empower the leadership of these schools and to provide networking opportunities for colleagues in the different schools to share best practice principles in order to grow and strengthen the schools in our membership. It is in growing the leadership that growth occurs within any organization. This growth benefits all members of the school community.

The aim of the website is to give access to information about our member schools while providing resources which can assist and grow our schools and the communities we serve.

The website will provide information such as details of conferences, resources and also a platform on which to advertise any vacancies available at the member schools.

We invite you to become a part of the SAGSA community through visiting our website, learning from the resources and becoming a member of the association.
