In an effort to produce well-rounded graduates, each week teachers focus on different character traits that instill positive qualities in students. There is also an interactive civics class that teaches students the practical and theoretical aspects of citizenship. A holistic approach to learning is the hallmark of the AUN Academy.
“A great deal of time is spent teaching our students cultural and moral respect. We are fulfilling the founder’s vision by creating tomorrow’s leaders,” Ms. McKee added.
The VP said that the International Program prepares students for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) from the University of Cambridge International Examinations (UCIE). Students also prepare for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the National Examination Council (NECO), and the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) at the Academy.
She said: “The Academy has produced outstanding test results this year. About 85 percent of the students secured distinctions and credits in their subject combinations while the remainder secured credits and passes, and every child has secured the required credits to move on to SS1."
Last year, an AUN Academy student scored the highest mark possible on NECO examinations in Adamawa State. Today that star candidate is pursuing an undergraduate program at AUN. This year, students and administrators celebrated two Cowbell Math competitions wins at the state level, had a victory at the National Science Odyssey, and recorded success at the National Mathematical Center, Abuja.
