The MaraVest group was founded by a family that is steeped in the private education sector. The family trust has formed a partnership with RMB Corvest to build on almost two decades of experience in private education, and to accelerate the effect they have on education in South Africa. As of 1 January 2014, there are eleven schools in the group; with a further three schools being developed during the year. With its roots in South Africa, it is the group's vision to expand and enhance the world through the provision of world-class education. Through this partnership, an international network of private schools is also established.
The group's slogan is to "invest in the education of our future" and we realise that not only can we influence the children we have in our classrooms today, but also if we invest in children today we can influence the future. We embrace the words of Franklin D. Roosevelt who said, "We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future".
Our Group's common purpose is the reason for our three service offerings, encompassing premier private schools and a range of value-driven schools that will influence all communities in South Africa. We extend our hands, expertise, and services to have an impact in education with partners such as churches, communities, and the government.
