IGSE Curriculum

At International Leadership Academy of Africa (ILAA) we are offering the British National Curriculum for ages 11 to 16.

ILAA, through its mantra of ‘Simplify, Inspire, and Transform’ gives our student core competencies and skills to face the global expectations. We set the Global context with an aim to develop international mindedness, making learning relevant and enable students to develop values and competencies necessary for global engagement through our rich curriculum; academics, co-curricular and extracurricular activities.

In the academics, our learners undertake a curriculum full of rigorous activities and bountiful knowledge. We endeavor to understand the learner needs and support them accordingly. Our learners enjoy the use of technology for learning through our differentiated modes of instruction. Our learners gain the international advantage of Cambridge international examinations that provide a well- defined path way to higher institutions of learning.

Our learners through the ILAA diverse experience become self- disciplined, self -confident, self- motivated and strong in moral values. They develop problem solving skills. They polish their critical thinking skills. They horn their leadership skills, become collaborative and good communicators. To complement the rich academic curriculum, ILAA-ICS integrates extra-curriculum activities in the daily life of our learners. Learners participate in activities that enhance interaction and fun.
