what we offer

Schools

Canadian Independent College of Ghana continues to be organized around a complete trimester system whereby a student can accumulate 10 complete high school credits from the beginning of September to the end of June without attending summer school. By the end of grade 10, students will have completed 16 of 18 compulsory courses required by the Ministry of Education for graduation purposes. These courses will be taught at a level that will enable students to achieve CANADIAN DIPLOMA standards as well as begin their preparation for the Advanced Placement exams in years three and four. Successful completion of these exams allows students to gain university credits concurrently with the completion of grade twelve credits.

Other Schools

pre-school and kindergarten

In our full-day Junior and Senior Kindergarten Program, your child receives individualized attention and interactive lessons in listening, speaking, math, reading, writing, science, technology, self and society. Class sizes average between 14 and 16 with one full-time teacher, a full-time assistant teacher and itinerant teachers for visual art, music and French. Kindergarten students begin each day at 8 a.m. with a morning circle. Our students hear stories, listen to presentations by schoolmates and share thoughts on topics of interest.

primary school

At Canadian Independent College of Ghana, we offer a dynamic, nurturing and positive learning environment where your child’s curiosity is stimulated, leadership skills are cultivated, and fun-filled interactive learning is meaningful and focused. A low teacher-student ratio and small class sizes (approximately 12-20 students per class) provide an ideal environment for learning. As your child moves through Grades 1 to 8, the emphasis is on building a foundation for lifelong learning and community service. 

Pre-university

Canadian Independent College Ghana offers preparatory courses for University to students in Grades 11 and 12. These courses are designed to aid the students to gain the knowledge base and skills they need to meet the entrance requirements for University or College Programs. Emphasis is placed on the theoretical aspects of the course content, as well as concrete applications.

AP means Advanced Placement. The AP Programme provides an opportunity for high school students to take College / University level courses while in high school. This exposure helps students build university level skills.   In many cases, students who achieve a level 4 on the AP examinations can earn university level course credit at most colleges and universities in the US, Canada and in 115 other countries. 

AP helps students gain an edge in university preparation:

  • Get a head start on exactly the same material you will confront in University.
  • Improve your writing skills and sharpen your problem-solving techniques.
  • Develop the study habits necessary for tacking rigorous course work.

Canadian Independent College of Ghana will provide a variety of Programmes to interested students during the summer (July-August). The Programmes will engage and stimulate students in a safe and controlled environment. An enriched curriculum mixed with day and weekend trips will be provided to summer camp students from a multicultural background.

The focus for our Activity Programme will be directed towards activities that can be of lifelong value for our students. Leadership of self and others will be encouraged in all Programmes. Canadian Independent College of Ghana places such values on these complimentary skills and activities that each student will be tracked and encouraged to participate in as many as is reasonably possible. Each student’s timetable has a set recreational time slot each day in addition to the mandatory physical education class. Each student will be required to pursue at least one activity per term.

Testimonies
My son had a checkered educational past where he had gaps in his formal education as well as battling with ADHD. It was important for us to find a school that accomodate both his issues and gaps in learning and thats what we found in CIC.

The class sizes are small so teachers get to have one on one interaction and closeness with students. Also all of our teachers are well experienced and trained teachers so they explain things clearly for us to understand.
Andre Opoku-Amankwaah

My children are more confident now. The teachers are close to the students and they nurture them in their environment. And because of that my children can talk freely, they communicate very well, and are very confident. I'm glad I brought my kids to CIC
