AFRICAN LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

This Regional Institute is aimed at connecting secondary school counselors within the Sub-Saharan Africa Region with university admission advising tools and networks of universities around the world. It is also intended for universities around the world who want to build connections and deepen their understanding of students in the Sub-Saharan Africa market.   

Through in-depth and focused conversations and presentations, participants will gain a greater understanding of the educational process, admission requirements, fees and scholarships, and the challenges and opportunities students face when applying to a university outside of Sub-Saharan Africa

African Leadership Academy seeks to transform Africa by developing a powerful network of over 6,000 leaders who will work together to address Africa’s greatest challenges, achieve extraordinary social impact, and accelerate the continent’s growth trajectory. ALA was founded in 2004 by Executive Chairman Fred Swaniker (Ghana), CEO Chris Bradford (U.S.), Acha Leke (Cameroon), and Peter Mombaur (Germany/South Africa). These men relied on five key beliefs that drove the establishment of African Leadership Academy and determined the focus and design of the institution. ALA remains the continent’s only pan-African high school, having admitted over 700 students from over 45 African countries to date.

The school is a member of International ACAC.


Cost
