Umalusi Accreditation


Kyrios Independent School is fully accredited with the Umalusi Council. This means that we have the highest status of accreditation that a private service provider can attain. The school was awarded full accreditation on 8 November 2016. At the time Kyrios became the second private school in Bloemfontein to receive full accreditation and the fourth in the entire Free State Province. Every 2 years The Umalusi Council monitors the school to ensure quality education. The school was monitored in 2018 and 2020 and has retained its accreditation status.

All private schools, primary and secondary,  must be accredited by the Umalusi Council. The value of being accredited is that stakeholders (parents and learners) are afforded the peace of mind that the school is being aligned with the requirements of Umalusi’s high standard of quality education in South Africa.

Umalusi accredits private providers of education and training as well as private assessment bodies to offer tuition and/or assessment for qualification(s) on the General and Further Education and Training Qualification Framework.

This means that Umalusi accredits the following institutions:

  • Independent schools
  • Private Further Education and Training Colleges (FET Colleges)
  • Private Adult Education and Training providers
  • Private assessment bodies that assess the qualifications Umalusi certifies.

In accrediting institutions, Umalusi is guided by policy documents that contain criteria for accreditation for each institutional type. Kyrios Independent School has developed many different policies that are being implemented by management and staff. As an accredited institution we regularly review and update our policies.
