The place is Colorado State University, USA. The year is 2010. A group of MBA students is studying for their MBA in Global Social Sustainable Enterprise. A question is posed to the class by one of the professors. “What do you think sucks in the world?” Several hands shoot up, suggesting issues relating to the environment, poverty reduction, education, waste management and others. But that is not the end of the question. He asks again, “What do you think is the solution to these issues?” We venture ideas. Then, just when we think we were done he asks the really big question; “So what are you going to do about it?” Pioneers International Academy is my response to that question.

Quality affordable elementary education in Africa is limited in many places, including Ghana. Often families and children travel an hour each way for good schools. Children are leaving their homes at 6am and sometimes earlier and getting home late with little or no time for play or family time. Pioneers International Academy is born out of the belief that quality affordable elementary education can be brought to the doorstep of parents.

Using the Cambridge curriculum we aim to develop our students to be more than just knowledgeable. We aim to produce life-long learners, who are inquirers, thinkers, risk takers, yet principled, balanced and passionate about making a contribution to improving the world.

In partnership with the Lego Education foundation, Intellitek and through our Innovation and Technology centre we introduce our students to becoming inventive, using robotics and engineering right from early childhood.

To bring this quality of education to your doorstep, our goal is serve families who live within 10 kilometers of our school and have our schools replicated wherever there is demand, particularly in new developing communities throughout Ghana and beyond.

We opened our first school January 2016  PS Global Community, Community 25, Tema.  We look forward to partnering with many communities in preparing Ghana’s children for the world.
