About Us

Amidst tranquil surroundings and unique Cape-Dutch architecture, Ashton International College Benoni is a private, independent Christian College that opened its doors in 1998.

The College flourished under the expert care and guidance of its founding members, Mr André Buys (Proprietor and Chairman) and Mrs Reena Snelling (Founding Member).

As an educational institution in the Republic of South Africa, we fully embrace our role of providing quality education to our students. We strive for excellence in preparing our students to take a leading position in the building of a united South Africa. We provide an education which challenges each student to think, question and strive for excellence of mind, body and spirit in a happy, nurturing environment. In addition, we uphold and practise the South African Constitutional values of human dignity, democracy, equality and multicultural diversity.

Our mission

As a South African Christian Educational institution, we recognise our role to provide quality education to our students and to strive for excellence. We endeavour to prepare our students to take a leading role in the building of a united South Africa.

Our Ethos

The tranquil country atmosphere at Ashton International College lends itself to old-fashioned values. These include caring, a sense of responsibility, a belief in manners, and respect for other social values which seem to have been lost in the modern world.
