The Aga Khan Academy Maputo opened in 2013 as the third in an integrated network of schools being established across 14 countries in Africa, Central and South Asia, and the Middle East.
The Aga Khan Academies focus on excellence: we aim to develop students to become home-grown leaders who can enact positive change in their societies. We provide a rigorous education for exceptional students selected on merit, regardless of their socio-economic, cultural or religious background.
The Academies customise the IB curriculum to our mission of building future leaders. We aim to stimulate creativity, intellectual curiosity and honest enquiry.
Unique Programme Elements
The Aga Khan Academy Maputo offers bilingual education through which students learn in both English and Portuguese.
We select students from varied cultural, linguistic and socio-economic backgrounds. This diverse community helps students learn to live with and appreciate others who have different values, beliefs and cultural contexts to their own.
"At Aga Khan Academy Maputo you learn about culture and tolerance. My friends are from Mozambique, South Africa, India, Portugal, England and Pakistan. In Grade 1 you learn how to express yourself in English and Portuguese. You learn about different perspectives." - Shaaz Makhani (Grade 1)
"I am an inquirer and I love to find out information. The most important thing is you will have a growth mindset, and if you make a mistake it means you are learning new things." - Tahir Vissaram (Grade 1)
A new campus designed by renowned architects is being purpose built for the Aga Khan Academy Maputo, including classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, well-equipped libraries, extensive sports facilities, spaces for the arts, and residential facilities to accommodate students and faculty.
