The African Science Academy (ASA) is a girls-only Advanced Level school for maths and science founded by African Gifted Foundation. Established in 2016, ASA is a boarding school for young women from across Africa with outstanding maths and science potential.
In just one academic year, ASA students complete globally respected Cambridge International A Levels in Maths, Further Maths and Physics. ASA also provides our students with robotics and computer science programmes alongside their A-Levels to prepare them for careers in Engineering, Science, Computing and more. Means-tested scholarships and bursaries are available to all students.
ASA prepares students to achieve internationally recognized Cambridge International Advanced Level Qualifications within a single year. ASA supports students to go on to study Engineering, Computer Science, Maths and Science courses at universities within Africa and abroad.
All students study A Level Maths, Further Maths and Physics. It is important to emphasise that ASA students must love Maths; the curriculum is extremely rewarding for those who enjoy abstract Maths and complex problem solving tasks.
All students at ASA are given the means and support to excel. ASA is a springboard to outstanding success at university and beyond.
Activities include community service, robotics, sports and board games. A guest speaker program ensures that every week students enjoy interactive lectures with leading experts from Africa, UK, USA and around the world. ASA also organises school trips to enrich students’ learning.
ASA is searching for excellence. Therefore, no student that is selected will be turned away because they cannot afford fees. ASA encourages applications from promising young scientists whatever their financial circumstances. ASA provides needs-based scholarships to all of our students to cover tuition fees and boarding costs.
