Our Story

We are a start-up based in Cape Town.
Through our platform we endeavour to improve access to education, quality of education, learner involvement and ultimately learner performance.

Onyx started as an idea to create online content for the masses, but the 2020 pandemic and millions of learners across the world being forced to learn online, made us realise there was a need for something more meaningful.

Our gamified learning platform is in it's infancy, but we are able to create environments that learners miss out on with online experiences. Our aim is to supplement the teaching of schools across the country, to provide high quality, interactive tutoring at prices that are just.

We look forward to seeing you in class!
