Preparing you for the science, IT, engineering or maths career of your dreams

We’ve proudly transformed the lives of thousands of students by giving them access to quality maths and science education. We believe in motivating students to be enthusiastically receptive.


Students are recruited and selected that have a natural ability in Maths.


Students work hard attending Saturday and vacation school until grade 12.


Our students have a 100% matric pass rate and Bachelors admission rate to university.


Our graduates often go on to work as doctors, engineers, actuarial scientists etc.

So many South African children do not have access to high-quality education – especially in subjects that feed into Science, IT, Engineering and Mathematics career. PROTEC Pietermaritzburg Academy provides this quality of enrichment education for disadvantaged children in Grade 8 – 12. Our aim is to provide students with expert teaching and tuition in core subjects that will empower them to pursue tertiary education in fields of their choice.

What our students say


I only knew a computer from pictures at school in KwaMpande. PROTEC Pmb offered exposure to Science Experiments, learning how to speak and read English… visits to companies, hearing about different Universities. I am forever grateful to PROTEC Pmb for changing my life in the best possible way!

– Valencia Mzila (2004)

I am forever grateful in getting the necessary results in Maths and Physical Science to gain access to DUT, to study National Diploma in Electrical Engineering (Heavy Current) and a study bursary. I’m now employed as an Electrical Technician at Preformed Line Products SA.

– Kwanele Ndumo (2015)

I hold a BEd degree from UKZN Edgewood Campus in Maths & Physical Science Education – I knew teaching was my calling from the time I had the opportunity to stand in front of my peers in the Maths Class at PROTEC Pmb Sat School, and lead the lesson for Mrs Mfeka! I have also lead the Grade 10 Personal Development Camp for Mrs Smuts since 2015 – every Grade 10 has great memories of their Camp!

– Sisanda Mkhwanazi (2013)

I was assisted not only in Maths & Science, but in the University & Bursary application processes for my MB ChB degrees at the University of Stellenbosch, where I am now completing my 5th Year of study. Thank you very much PROTEC Pmb, your efforts have helped me advance to where I am today!
