Eunice High School for Girls - Bloemfontein

Eunice High School is a girls' boarding school/day school located in Park West, Bloemfontein and strives to produce outstanding school leavers who are innovative, analytical, articulate, balanced and adaptable with the life-long love of learning. The language of instruction is English.

Originally named the Oranje Vrij Staat Dames Instituut, the school was founded in 1875 on the initiative of the Dutch Reformed Church. Steeped in the history and spirit of the old Free State Republic, the school has a long tradition of excellence. Eunice is one of South Africa’s best known girls’ boarding school.

The name Eunice is a biblical reference to the mother of Timothy in the New Testament. It is a Greek word meaning “happy victory”. For over a hundred years Eunice was situated in the centre of Bloemfontein, alongside some of the city’s oldest and most famous buildings. Today it boasts a modern school in spacious surroundings bordering on the equally well-known Grey College and the University of the Free State.

Eunice High School’s long standing tradition of excellence is the result of our unique staff, 850 learners and parents collectively supporting, upholding and contributing to the myriad of activities and opportunities offered at our multi-faceted school.​ 

Eunice’s Mission:
’s vision is to be a first rate, world-class high school which proudly affirms its longstanding standards, values and tradition and which is committed to academic excellence, quality teaching, social responsibility and multiple opportunities for all-round development.

Eunice was awarded the National Education Excellence Award for the Top Performing Public School in 2015.
