Zambia Secondary Schools

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



AISL Logo f9c13a 1American International School of Lusaka (AISL) is one of a handful of schools in Africa authorized to deliver all three of the International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the Diploma Programme. We provide a supportive, safe, and secure learning environment based on trust, respect, integrity and open communication. Strong family-school partnerships support learning. Teachers, parents, and students work together as a team to maximize learning for our students. The world renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) program creates young people of integrity who think critically, care about their community, identify and solve problems, work effectively in teams, and lead for change. As a true international school, we look beyond Zambia and benchmark our programs, faculty, facilities, and results against the finest international schools in the region. Tomorrow’s diplomatic, business, educational, and scientific leaders are enrolled in our school today. We believe that valuable learning also takes place beyond the four walls of the academic classroom. Our robust extra-curricular program offers a range of activities that include music, drama, visual arts, technology, sports, health & wellness, service, and leadership. The program is enriched by domestic and international trips, tournaments, and performances, all of which offer opportunities for ALL our students to shine.

It has the widest programme of IGCSEs and A Levels in Zambia and offers a broad and balanced curriculum with a consistent pathway from Early Learning through to Senior College. With some of the finest sports and recreational grounds in Zambia, Baobab College has established itself as one of Zambia’s leading independent boarding schools.

ISLInternational School of Lusaka (ISL) is the oldest international school in Zambia and has provided history, legacy, and tradition alongside academic excellence since 1963. With a student body from over 50 countries and a vibrant international and local teaching staff, ISL is committed to educating the whole child to ensure success in the world beyond our campus: learning today, leading tomorrow. The school is proud to be an International Baccalaureate World School, authorized to offer the PYP and IBDP. ISL is also authorised to offer the IMYC (International Middle Years Curriculum) in Middle School and the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) in Years 10 and 11. These curricula, as well as having a host of other international accreditations, make ISL the premier academic school in Zambia and in the region. The student population at ISL is split between transient international students and those who spend the entirety of their academic careers at our school. The former benefit from ISL’s high academic requirements so that they are well placed to move to new International schools when their tenures in Zambia end. The latter benefit from continuity in all levels of education, all philosophically aligned to prepare students for life in and out of the classroom.
