Dr. Gigi De Villiers, Principal
Luis De Villiers, Dean of Students
Each independent school is unique – founded by individuals pursuing a vision of superior education, combined with moral traditions. The philosophies and objectives of our school reflect the heritage, vision, goals, enthusiasm, dedication, experience and energies of its founders, Luis and Jiliann De Villiers. It has been their dream to build a high school program designed for students with unique learning styles that will assist them with the transition to adulthood.
Luis De Villiers who is affectionately known as "Coach Luis" came from world of Corporate America into the world of education. Coach Luis was always involved with his wife Dr. Gigi in the operation of schools and with her special needs students. His life was touched by every student and parent he met along along the way. The story behind each child became his inspiration to join the world of education alongside his wife.
It is their belief that teachers, parents and the community share the responsibility for opening the doors of opportunity for our students and that by providing discipline, love and encouragement and a solid academic curriculum with small classes and individualized attention, we can achieve success. In the fall of 2009, their dream came true when they inaugurated Schoolhouse Preparatory.
