School curriculum

The College curriculum covers the Junior Secondary School, the Senior Secondary School and Trade School curricula with a plan to introduce University Preparatory Class in future. On completion of the Senior Secondary School education the students will be able to write a number of examinations and obtain qualifications for academic pursuit (GCE, NECO, SAT, TOEFL), technical professional calling (City and Guilds, Trade Tests, NABTEB).
