Why should you choose a CIS accredited international school?
Ajman Academy received full accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS); an international membership and community in January 2020. CIS is a global organisation with more than 1300 educational institution members promoting a desire to provide students with the knowledge and skills to pursue their lives as global citizens.
Why does accreditation matter?
As the only school in Ajman with CIS membership, this accreditation reinforces our commitment to undertaking an ongoing external quality assurance process that enhances the student learning at Ajman Academy from our youngest Pre-KG students to our A-Level graduates. Our journey towards the CIS accreditation began in 2017. It included a period of self-study and assessment, followed by a CIS evaluation visit from a team of educational professionals in November 2019. The whole AJAC community, including staff, students, parents and the Board of Directors were involved in the process, which examined every aspect of Ajman Academy. The review delved into our mission statement, values and principles as well as our curriculum and commitment to student development and enrichment.
