We provide world-class education, in a way that is both affordable and scalable
Our long-term vision is to grow a network of schools that serves millions of children across the continent and the world. We believe that every child deserves a better future, and that if given the right nurturing and support, each one of them is capable of greatness.
EVERY CHILD THINKS PERFECTLY
Every scholar has legitimate and valuable thoughts, ideas and emotions.
SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE ARE MADE, NOT BORN
With the right environment, guidance and tools, every person has within themselves the inherent potential for success.
TEACHERS ARE RESEARCHERS OF LEARNING
They are not dispensers of knowledge – they are researchers at heart, continually learning with and about their scholars.
WE LEARN BEST THROUGH OUR OWN DISCOVERY
Learning occurs when people are challenged and are equipped with the instruments to come to the solution themselves.
LEARNING IS SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL
We learn best when we feel safe, confident and able to share our learning journey with others.
At ASE we are taught to step up and express our minds. This means you get to really be yourself while still learning from your friends and your teachers
~ David Mangunza, Accelerate scholar
Our Learning Model
Our learning is focused on problem-solving, with questions set by highly trained teachers and resolved by scholars working together. Daily practice, with teacher feedback, completes the on-going cycle. Lessons follow a specific flow from team to dialogue to independent work. We encourage inquisitiveness and creativity in the classroom, empowering scholars with the tools to unleash their potential.
We believe it is vital that we measure beyond exam results and measure what matters. We’ve taken factors that have been proven to enhance success in life and better equip children, and have built an academic model from the ground up. We integrate these skills into the fabric of our schooling. Instead of simply assessing the development of a child on their Math or English exam scores, we’re creating environments wherein skills such as grit, creative problem-solving, emotional awareness, abstract reasoning and zest are cultivated and measured within a rigorous academic framework.
