Flagship Project

Osnon Academy
Osnon Academy is a free co-boarding secondary school for the brightest young minds in Uga, Anambra state. Situated in the historic town of Uga, Osnon Academy seeks to bring opportunities to communities traditionally overlooked. We believe in the power of education to empower young people and transform communities. Our resolve to create access is instrumental in creating our academy, where accessibility to education asks no financial obligation from students but to come with a curious mind. Access to quality education includes curriculum rooted in the 21st century, by challenging the status quo and engaging in access to quality education through technology.
The Osnon Academy Blueprint

We aim to create a learning environment that challenges young people to think outside the box, nurturing their creativity, curiosity, and a mind geared towards innovation. With carefully conceived extracurricular and mentorship programs, our students will have access to the most brilliant minds from all walks of life, their insight and first-hand knowledge from years of practice in their given fields.  

Our approach to education is holistic, based on a careful balance between intellectual heft and social skills. By building a curriculum with educational leaders, our academy aims to engage the naturally inquisitive minds of our students. We aim to create a learning environment that encourages integrity, courage, and empathy. We are committed to the elevating our partner communities and society at large.

The Osnon Student Profile

Students of Osnon Academy would not only be able to articulate their own needs, but they would also be sympathetic to the needs of others and speak up for those who can’t do so for themselves. A potential Osnon Academy student may be admitted for outstanding academic performance through a rigorous but transparent process. Over time, they are forged into leaders of leaders, influential community builders, eloquent communicators, and focused visionaries.
