Aduvie International School, Jahi, Abuja has commenced a pre-university programme to ensure that students hoping to be admitted into university either at home or abroad receive the requisite preparation.
Proprietress of the School, Mrs Lott-J, who stated this as part of activities marking the 10th year anniversary of the school, said the programme, which will commence in September, would cover University of Cambridge ‘A’ Levels, Nigerian ‘A’ Levels, Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), O’ Level Grades/Post-UTME preparatory classes and SAT/TOEFL/IELTS.
According to the proprietress, the programme also has a wide range of extra-curricular activities to help students enrich their college experience, adding that her dream and passion for establishing the institution is to bring out the best in every child.
The Aduvie dream she said, became a reality on the 8th of January, 2008, with two pupils and four teachers in a five bedroom bungalow in Wuse 2, saying that the vision took root and developed to the great height that the school has attained.
“Our hard work, your efforts and contributions as well as God’s immeasurable blessings led us to a bigger facility still in Wuse 2, and now to our permanent site here in Jahi, Abuja.
“Now, with humble pride, deep gratitude to you all and above all to God, I wish to inform us that we have almost 600 students and staff strength of over 200,” she said.
As an institution with national and international recognition, Aduvie has participated in many social and educational competitions and flown many flags of victory.
Lott-J disclosed that the school has won the Nigerian Advancement Award for the Best Performing Primary School in Abuja, the African Achievers’ Award, the African Achievers’ Impact Award and first positions in many spelling bee competitions, debates, among several others.
“In Aduvie, we strive to groom total children by developing them academically, building skills in sports, music, and entrepreneurship as well as ensuring that they are grounded in character and good behavior,” she added.
