Welcome | Aga Khan Academies


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Aga Khan Academy Maputo. The Academy is the third in a network of schools to be established across Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Middle East, with the purpose of providing a world-class education to exceptional students of all socio-economic backgrounds.

The Academy is a candidate* school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme in the Junior School. As the school grows we will introduce the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes for the Senior School. 

This continuum of education, which is locally rooted but globally relevant, emphasises the development of critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills, ultimately enabling our graduates to go to the best universities in the world. 

Upon entering the Senior School, a nurturing residential programme will also be available for students, fostering self-discipline, personal responsibility and leadership skills.

Inspired, motivated and challenged by outstanding teachers, students are encouraged to discover and develop their individual affinities, in an environment that is enriching, exciting, happy and secure.

Our lower primary school opened in August 2013, catering for children aged between 5 and 8 years of age. The full Junior School will be available by August 2015 and the Senior School will open in 2017.

Please follow the enquiries link available on this page, or come and visit us to experience for yourself what the Academy in Maputo has to offer.
