THE ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
“ Intelligence plus Character – that is the goal of true education”.
These words of Martin Luther King Jr. give insight into the Mission of this Institution in its continuous pursuit of excellence. Alpha offers quality education to its students and boasts a highly qualified Academic team consisting of the Dean of Studies, Subject and Form Teachers, Grade Supervisors and Heads of Departments. These teachers are professionals who are committed to the task of creating conducive environments for learning for all students. The school recognizes that students are intellectually competent in multi-faceted ways; therefore, lessons are structured to meet their different academic and social needs.
At Alpha, students are exposed to a variety of subject disciplines at each grade level. The academic programme is enhanced by the multi-faceted resources of the School Library with its reference materials, cyber café and audio-visual facility. The school has laboratories which provide the students with practical experience in the Sciences, Information Technology and Home Economics.
