Since its humble beginnings, Kwasa College has slowly added to its number of school buildings and facilities either through renovating existing structures from the abandoned Daggenfontein supply outpost or building new. 
The first classrooms at Kwasa in 2010 were not fit for purpose comprising a derelict mine clinic building, open to the elements, and a repurposed shipping containers with windows cut in the steel sides. 

Today, Kwasa College owns the 21 Hectare site outright (about 45 acres), and has just been granted re-zoning approval for educational use, removing any doubt about its future ability to realise the vision of providing educational opportunities through matriculation (12th grade) by the year 2027. The fully secure school site houses classrooms, a chapel, sports fields and netball courts, safe play areas, two boarding houses for vulnerable students, a kitchen, water boreholes, a biomass plant generating methane from food waste, and a thriving vegetable plot.

Future plans include buildings to house grades 7-12, a hall/auditorium and administration building (housed in the large building on the left), a sports complex, medical clinic, and residential housing units for students.
