African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to enroll the most outstanding young leaders from across Africa and around the world — ALA is not only looking for young people who are smart and excel academically, they are also looking for young people with potential to lead and impact the world around them through their courage, initiative and innovation.
ALA’s two-year pre-university Diploma Program is not a full high school, neither is it a university; it is a leadership development program that prepares young leaders for a lifetime of leadership in Africa and around the world, while supporting their transition to tertiary education.
Through two-year pre-university Diploma Program, and a suite of short-term Global Programs, they employ
the tools of critical inquiry, design thinking and experiential learning to develop a generation of entrepreneurial leaders for Africa and the world.
African Leadership Academy is a hub of leadership and entrepreneurial activities. Alongside the two-year preuniversity Diploma Program, we host a range of programs for young people from across the world, between the ages of 13-19. These programs include our 10-day and 18-day Global Scholars Program (Explore Africa and Engage Africa), and the 5-day Model African Union conference.
