Uganda Secondary Schools

The Beacon has partnered with the following top schools in Uganda to offer The Beacon Scholarship for Schools:



ISUInternational School of Uganda (ISU) was established in 1967 and is the oldest international school in Uganda. ISU is a non-profit, International Baccalaureate (IB) World School that provides our students with the chance to learn and grow in an environment that nurtures curiosity, empathy and understanding of others. We come together as a committed, inclusive community of students, parents, teachers, staff and leaders, in order to prepare for a world that changes with unprecedented speed. Our approaches to learning ground us in the knowledge base of the traditional disciplines. Upon this foundation we build the critical thinking skills and creativity necessary for realizing opportunities, adapting to change and developing a personal moral compass. With 510 students from Pre-K to Grade 12 graduation, representing more than 60 nationalities, we are committed to guiding our students to become responsible global citizens. IB Diploma scores are consistently above world averages and our students are accepted to the top university of their choice.




KISUOriginally established in 1993, for the past 10 years, Kampala International School Uganda (KISU) has been located in a beautiful purpose-built campus near the centre of Kampala with world-class facilities. KISU is a warm, vibrant and truly international learning community that is fully accredited by CIS and is an IBO World School generating results consistently above the world average. Surveys clearly show KISU to be perceived as the best international school in Uganda. Although our curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum between the ages of 2 and 16 (followed by the prestigious IB Diploma), we are unequivocally an IB school and utterly committed to developing the qualities outlined in the IB learner profile in all of our learners. We are passionate about providing a truly holistic learning experience for our students that genuinely prepares “today’s children for tomorrow’s world"!
