Welcome to Polar Academy:

Poplar Academy is a co-educational, parallel medium, independent school, situated in Crowthorne, in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa.

A foundation rooted in knowledge allows for a focused and strong core. A supportive and nurturing environment encourages growth and development of a confident self where knowledge shields against the challenges of the modern world.

Just as the combined effort of the roots and trunk of a tree ensures growth and stability, we believe that every child, with the correct support and guidance, can grow into a proud and confident individual.
