About Think Digital Academy

Internationally acclaimed online school

Think Digital Academy, is an online school that prides itself in providing world-class online learning to students all over the world. We present our online content in an interactive, engaging, and effective way for virtual school students.

Think Digital Academy (TDA) is also the first online school not only providing the United States GED but also the British International and South African CAPS curricula, as well as other exciting courses.

Our name derives from our strong belief that “Thinking” is one of the most important skills a child can be taught.  We have so much information at our fingertips, but young students need to learn how to think creatively to use this information to plan, design, innovate – for anything they wish to pursue in their lives. With this online school, all this and more is possible.

“Think Digital Academy takes the unique approach in that instead of being forced to turn off your devices and pack them away during school, we encourage you to utilise them to enhance your learning experience by accessing the highest quality content.

You are living in the most exciting times and your education has now caught up with Think Digital Academy.”

Passionate about online learning, for all

Janessa Leita, the founder of Think Digital Academy, launched this exciting new platform in 2016 when she noticed that students’ learning and behavioural patterns were changing, in conjunction with the fast-paced evolution in technology. Instead of fighting the technological enhancement that captivates all young people of today, she embraced it, to their educational advantage.

“Our aim is to produce young adults who are innovative, creative and independent in their thinking, who have courage, perseverance and resilience and who believe in themselves and their potential.” expresses Janessa.

Think Digital Academy has fast built a reputation of trust, quality, and innovation. Which can be seen in not only all the media reports, but also in the reviews and feedback provided by online students as well as their parents. Think Digital Academy stands behind the direction that online learning is moving in, and will ensure it stays ahead of the curve, providing only the best virtual learning experiences for students so that they are better equipped to navigate the world when they graduate.

Sarabibi Varachia

I love that there is an option of tutor support, and that it can be done at my own pace, the free 14 day trial gives a good idea of the course before signing up.

Janine Gouws

My daughter has gone from strength to strength since joining Think Digital Academy. She is now so used to taking notes after watching and reading through the material that she has taken comprehensive notes during her Zoom swimming sessions and is able to explain everything that she has learnt easily from her notes. This is a child who really battled in the conventional schooling system and has undergone a tremendous change since joining Think Digital Academy. Thank you to the Think Digital Team you truly are a spectacular team 😁

Neldie VdMerwe Viljoen

It was the best decision to enroll my grade 10 and 12 kids here. They can't get enough of the interesting lessons. The people are so pleasant and always help with kindness, no matter how many times you call to ask for help. You are the BEST!!!!

Love the platform, very user friendly.

Annie Andrews

My boys are very much enjoying this. And I love that you can do this anywhere. We take our ipads to the park, and we work from there. I love it!

Bob Howard

TDA is by far the best home schooling platform in South Africa. As a digital home school, I as a student can be anywhere, literally, and do my work. My marks have gone up, I no longer have to travel 2 hours a day and I am much more focused on school work.

Michelle Ferreira

The best. My kids love it!

Lorinda Everson

Love them!! They allow children to be children!!

Great home school option - we had a great experience last year during Covid lockdown. Our matric daughter passed with a university exemption - we were very happy with the support she received while she was doing her online studies with them - thank you Think Digital!!!
