The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls (OWLAG) is now accepting applications for the 2021 academic year. The vision of the academy is to “support the development of a new generation of dynamic women leaders”.
The school has academic and financial requirements for its entrants. The qualifying student should be a South African citizen or permanent resident with an average of 70% for Maths and English. The household income should also be less than R30,000 per month.
Your child will be subjected to a set of tests before their application is successful. They are as follows:
Stage 1: Entrance tests
Applicants who meet the initial criteria will be invited to write entrance tests, which will be held at several different venues throughout South Africa.
Stage 2: More extensive testing – academic and leadership potential
Further selection and more extensive testing of academic and leadership potential will follow.
Stage 3: Selection camps – clinical interviews and a range of psychological assessments
Final selection camps, lasting 2 or 3 days, will be held at the Academy later in the year.
Stage 4: Home visits and registration
All successful students will be registered at their homes at the end of the process.
