Welcome to Africa Community School Abuja (ACS). A School that is unmatched in its breadth and depth, its capacity for innovation, and its commitment to global engagement. As you and your child take this educative journey through the website, you are encouraged to consider how your child might take advantage of the almost limitless possibilities at ACS.
ACS offers an inclusive, academically challenging and selective co-educational Nigerian and British Curricula to scholars from year 3 to 12. The Nigerian/British National Curricula is adopted for years (7 – 9) with CIE, NECO, BECE and ERC examinations written in year 9. The prestigious IGCSE and Senior School Curricula and the external examinations are taken in years 11 and 12.
ACS has a purpose-built campus with the state-of-art ICT and science laboratories and a well-equipped library. We are passionate about providing the best thought out educational opportunities.
Academic excellence is expressed in our broad and deep curriculum which surpasses mere acquisition of knowledge and emphasizes the development of independent critical thinking students.. ACS is the place to foster a cross-cultural understanding with small class sizes. Our teachers are able to meet students where they are and push them further than they ever thought possible. For 14 years, we have worked hard to establish ourselves as a first-rate and well-known school for parents and students. We aspire to become the best in Nigeria and to rank amongst the top schools worldwide.
Although academic excellence is our goal, we emphasize on all round education. Therefore, the spiritual and co-curricular programmes are not left behind. ACS is devoted to teaching and connecting with students well beyond the classroom wall. For ACS, learning does not just happen within the confines of the classroom. We are renowned for dramatic and musical programmes.
A positive and collaborative relationship exists between the board of directors, teachers, support staff, parents and friends of the School. All activities are made possible by the perseverance, determination and the drive of the teachers and the support staff.
At ACS, we point to the achievement of our Alumni – an extraordinary group of entrepreneurs, high ranking personnel and public servants. Their life’s work can be traced back to the foundation established at ACS. These remarkable stories can be linked to teachers who encouraged them, peers who applauded them, adversities they have encountered and endless opportunities sought and achieved.
Our core values of “GOLDEN” – Godly, Outstanding, Loyal, Disciplined, Excellent and Noble, underpin our philosophy and practice.
Websites only offer a glimpse of life in our school but we hope that it provides you with all you need to come to us.
You are invited to visit our school at any time and I would be delighted to meet you and show you around.
