ALA’s curriculum is unique, purpose-built for an audacious mission. All students complete two-year sequences in African Studies, Writing & Rhetoric and Entrepreneurial Leadership. These courses are designed to equip students with the knowledge, skills, habits and mindsets required to bring their leadership vision to life.
Of course, meaningful leadership impact is also built on a foundation of academic rigor. Therefore, students at ALA also select a combination of elective courses that are internally and externally assessed. Most elective courses are aligned to the Cambridge (CAIE) AS and A-level sequence, preparing students for external assessment at the end of their second year. ALA’s academic program is widely accepted by leading global tertiary institutions, and represents an exceptional standard of preparedness for university studies and impactful careers thereafter.
Students can choose to challenge themselves further by taking on independent research in the Creative Arts, Sciences, Humanities or International Relations. ALA is also a Global Online Academy campus and a Pioneer Academics school, meaning that students can extend their studies and research opportunities beyond ALA’s own faculty.
