Secondary School Years 7 To 13

The Secondary level at Scholars International Academy ensures that the students are getting the knowledge that would aid them in creating a prosperous future. Once the students are promoted to the secondary programme they are introduced to a greater degree of critical thinking, tasks and learning making sure that the students at SIA are well equipped for all sorts of challenges. There is a great number of SIA students entering the secondary program after the successful completion of their primary programme. Our primary programme forms a strong foundation for our students to build on.

We value the academics of the student, and for this, academic performance of students is evaluated at a regular basis. Which in turn, serves as a way for students to self-analyse themselves and do better. We also believe in keeping our students motivated and for that students’ performances whether academic or extra – curricular is rewarded and recognised. Our school practices great ethics and morals which are passed on to our students in order to yield well disciplined, confident and respectful individuals.
