AISA welcomes applications from any elementary and/or secondary school in Africa that offers an international curriculum using English as the primary language of instruction.
Membership is awarded to schools that are committed to international-mindedness and intercultural competence which we expect to be reflected in the school’s mission and vision.
Affiliate School Membership is for schools undergoing accreditation, enabling them to access the benefits of membership which will support their accreditation journey. This is a temporary membership with schools needing to achieve accreditation within 5 years of joining.
Membership fees enable AISA to offer a learning programme and services that meet the needs of member schools.
