Our school is the first of a network of about 18 planned Academies offering the highest international standard of education to students in countries across Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Middle East.

The campus has been specially designed by renowned architects and is purpose built. Our facilities include the following academic and resource areas:

  • Art and music rooms
  • Design and technology workshops
  • Multipurpose hall
  • Religion and culture room
  • Career counselling facility.

The Commons building houses the dining hall and an array of spaces for school activities. It is designed to be the hub of student activity, serving as the Academy’s main space for major school functions, including music and drama performances and public lectures.

Our sports facilities are extensive and include:

  • Swimming and diving pools
  • Sports fields, for example for soccer, hockey and athletics, including floodlight capacity for nightime matches

Residential accommodation

Our residential facilities have been designed to house students and dorm parents (teachers who have been selected and trained to live in the faculty apartments in the student residences). Accommodation is available for Academy community members from both within the country and overseas, as well as for those visiting or on exchange from another Aga Khan Academy. Additional teachers' quarters on campus house both resident and visiting faculty along with their families.
