Inkamana High School, Vryheid, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, a Catholic Missionary School, was founded in 1918 by exiled World War German missionaries. The school has in produced some of the best black scholars, writers and political leaders during the Apartheid era. This is due the school refusing to provide Bantu Education. The school has been able to achieve a 100% matric pass rate for the past twenty two years under trying circumstances.

This co-educational boarding school is part of, and located within, Inkamana Abbey. There is a monastery, church, farm and other related activities as part of the location. Inkamana would be considered a school dedicated to poor rural students but has academically outshone more affluent schools in the Kwazulu Natal province.
