Grades 1 to 8

At Canadian Independent College 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. Expectations for academic achievement are set high, yet balanced with a rich curriculum of competitive and recreational athletics, music and drama, visual arts and exciting excursions.

Our family-style hot lunches, supervised at each table by faculty members, is a time to learn table manners, share stories and meet children from other grades.

Athletics and Arts

Grades 1 through 3 students take part in a structured recreational Programme including computing, track & field, soccer, biking, softball and badminton. Creativity and artistic abilities within each child are also developed through Programmes covering vocal music, visual arts and drama.

Grades 4 through 8 students are introduced to competitive sports such as football, hockey, soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, and softball.

Creativity and artistic abilities within each child are also developed through Programmes covering instrumental and vocal music, visual arts and drama. By enhancing each student’s sense of self-worth, our Arts Programme helps students broaden their skills, imagination and intellect through the study of music, band instruments, vocal music, musical theatre skills and musical theory.

After Hours Programme

Available from 4:15 p.m.-6:00 p.m., students can play or relax after school by joining one of the exciting activities such as karate, dance or music lessons. Older students can enjoy supervised homework time while in the after hours Programme.
