What curriculum do you use?

A. We use a combination of Nigerian and American curriculum. We ensure our students meet all Nigerian standards, so they are ready for a future in Nigeria if they chose to attend university here, but we don’t want that to be the end of our education. We include the best of the American standards to give students a broader perspective of the world. This will provide them the resources to attend universities around the world.

How have your students done on external exams?

A. Our students wrote the BECE exam for the first time in 2015. We had good scores of A and C in all subjects, with the only P’s coming in Yoruba Language.

What are the qualifications of teachers?

A. All of our teachers have a Bachelor degree level education or higher. All staff continues to participate in further training throughout each year to learn more about the best practices of teaching and classical education.

What makes your school different from others?

A. A classical approach to education gives students a solid base to their learning. We take a practical approach to education, not just book knowledge. We tie everything back to real life situations and teach them the “why” to their questions. We teach Latin, to give them a stronger base to the English language, and Logic and Rhetoric to help them to think and analyze and apply their knowledge.

How old is the school?

A. The school opened in September 2012, with 12 students in grade 7 (JSS1).

What is classical education?

A. Classical education is a methodology that really takes students back to the basics. It teaches students in such a way as to build upon their natural strengths and weaknesses at each developmental stage. When students begin at Bethel AIS, they are still young, and their method of learning is much different than when they have been here a few years. We capitalize on those natural strengths to boost their knowledge further.
