Admission to the Aga Khan Academies is based solely on merit. It is also means-blind - that is, selection is based not on the ability to pay but on merit determined by a wide range of criteria, including academic strengths and overall potential.
Aga Khan Academies' language policy
English is the lingua franca of the Aga Khan Academies and is used for all inter-Academy communications. As a significant reflection of the Academies’ commitment to square the global with the local, a dual language policy has been instituted in each Academy. Instruction is in English and the national language of the country. Other foreign languages will be proposed. This language requirement is intended to prepare students for opportunities in an increasingly interdependent world.
Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa
The Junior School is introducing curriculum delivered through a 50-50 dual language immersion of English and Kiswahili. The Senior School provides a range of courses and offerings designed to prepare our students for the Bilingual International Baccalaureate Diploma. At all levels of the School, French is offered as an additional language.
Students may enter the first three years of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) without a strong prior knowledge of one of the languages of instruction, English or Kiswahili, however in the last three years of the Programme, students must have a basic level of proficiency in both languages before they may be admitted. Students without an intermediate level of proficiency in English may be admitted to the Middle Years Programme, on a case by case basis. MYP students have the opportunity to study Language A (language and literature) in both the Official Language (English) and National Language of Kenya (Kiswahili) in preparation for Language A and Language A1 in the Diploma Programme.
