African Leadership Academy
The Academy African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to transform Africa by identifying, developing, and connecting thousands of leaders for the continent over the next few decades. ALA is founded on the philosophy that a new generation of ethical, committed leaders is the key to Africa’s development. ALA seeks to become training ground for these future leaders and draws the most outstanding students from all 54 countries in Africa to its campus in South Africa. Here, they build a powerful intellectual foundation and develop their leadership capacity through ALA’s unique curriculum in Entrepreneurial Leadership. Our unique curriculum seeks to empower every young leader with the skills necessary to lead on the African continent in the 21st century.
Teaching Faculty is growing, and seeks faculty members for a range of subjects (English; African Studies; Mathematics; Sciences; Social Sciences; Humanities) who desire to prepare our students to lead in a changing world, and to create jobs and work in industries that do not yet exist. Our curriculum seeks to build each student’s capacity for critical analytical thinking, with required courses in Writing and Rhetoric, African Studies, and Mathematics, and a range of elective courses, along with our course in Entrepreneurial Leadership. ALA actively participates in Olympiad competitions and challenges students to carry out independent research. As a boarding school environment, every faculty member is expected to participate in holistic student life. Faculty members report to department heads and work with peers to transform their curriculum such that it can advance the Academy’s mission.
