Cape Town - To pay or not to pay, that seems to be the big question when it comes to considering the high cost of attending South Africa's top (and most expensive) private boarding schools.

Those parents who decide it is worth it (and who can afford it of course) would have to be prepared to cough up more than R200 000 per child in 2017. Do keep in mind that the fee also includes the full boarding cost of learners.

If you are looking for the most expensive private schools in the country, look no further than KwaZulu Natal with Hilton College weighing in at R253 660 (tuition and boarding) for 2017, followed by Michaelhouse at R240 000 (tuition and boarding).
