Acacia is a Christian school. For us, this means that the board members and teachers are committed Christians and that our teachers approach their work with the belief that all students are created in the image of God, that each is uniquely endowed with creative and intellectual potential and inherently valuable. Moral and ethical values such as honesty, integrity, compassion and justice are an important part of the holistic education students will receive. Bible teaching is integrated into the curriculum and students attend weekly chapels. All students regardless of their faith background are treated with dignity, love and respect.
The school is independent and not affiliated with any denomination.
At the primary level we follow a North American classical curriculum that is designed for an international setting. Beginning in August 2015 we will begin offering the IGCSEs in grades nine and ten.
The Junior School for our Early Year to grade 4 is located in Muyenga at "rest corner" on Zzimwe Road across from the Italian "Tank Hill Parade" Supermarket near Fuego Restaurant.
The Senior School for grades 5 to 9 is on Kironde Road opposite Terraces Restaurant in Muyenga (about 850 meters from the Junior School campus).
