As I watched my three daughters go to preschool,
I realized there was a gap in Ghana for preschools that felt like “home away from home”, and that is what our children need – particularly in Ghana where they go to school as early as 6 months old. In 2006, I set out to create one such preschool that would have a neat and safe homely environment. Thus, Tema Kiddie Academy was born in community 11, and went on to become one of the best preschools in Tema.
“ We established a balanced foundation for brilliant, forward thinking and disciplined pupils."
From those humble beginnings, we established a balanced foundation for brilliant, forward thinking and disciplined pupils who went on to further their education in various schools.
It was wonderful watching our kids grow up and the key role we were playing in shaping and molding them. In response to the positive feedback we received from students, parents, and other schools, the school was extended to incorporate a Primary department in September 2010, and rebranded as Aves International Academy.
Aves is the scientific name for birds, and became symbolic of the journey we wanted to take with our students – nurture them from a tender age and watch them grow into strong, brilliant, and majestic leaders that are able to soar to unlimited heights.
In 2015, we relocated our primary school to our brand new state-of-the-art campus in community 25. Today, Aves International Academy is a private preschool, primary and secondary school with two campuses in community 25, implementing the Montessori framework and Cambridge curriculum.
Through all these changes, our directive has remained the same over the years – dedication to the highest standard of education, which nurtures well-rounded learners and equips them with all the resources and self-confidence they need to compete on a global level and make a difference in the global community.
We welcome your involvement and encourage you to participate in all we do. Our vision is to build an institution, which focuses on supporting and developing the potential of every child. We therefore pride ourselves on drawing from a pool of the best human and material resources to become the best-suited institution for our students.
