Why Choose the Aga Khan Academy Maputo

Admission to the Aga Khan Academy Maputo is based on merit. This is broadly defined as exceptional intellectual potential, leadership, a commitment to learning, a strong sense of integrity, and the desire to work towards and instigate positive change.

As part of a network of Academies, we aim to provide exceptional students, from all backgrounds, with an outstanding education.

We seek students representing a diverse range of economic, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. We look for students who have the ability and motivation to excel academically and who are or will be capable of demonstrating leadership in community service and other co-curricular pursuits.

"But above all, it is my hope that these schools will stimulate creativity, intellectual curiosity and honest inquiry so that their students can adapt and thrive in a world of rapid change; can make informed judgements on life’s daily challenges, and place those judgements in an ethical framework."His Highness the Aga Khan (Maputo, 25 June 2004)We are more than just schools that strive to give their students a sound academic foundation. We emphasise the importance of academic excellence while instilling in students a sense of civic responsibility and the desire, ability and commitment to give back to their communities locally and globally.

Our educational approach measures success not just by academic achievement, but how students apply what they know to make the world a better place.

The overall educational programme is designed to foster students’ curiosity while providing them with the skills and intellectual confidence to engage with what they do not know and find answers and solutions.
