The New ACIC

About Us

Welcome to The New Abuja Capital International College – one of Africa’s most innovative schools. NACIC is a co-educational, non-denominational international college, which offers multiple learning programs to prepare students for the college or university of their choice, anywhere in the world.

To that end, we utilize the Cambridge IGCSE curriculum, recognized by universities and employers worldwide. We have also partnered with Alliance Française to prepare students for the Diplôme d’études en langue française (DELF) examination, allowing students to apply to any university in the Francophone world. In addition, we have an academic track for those wishing to take the WAEC and SSCE, as well as an immersion program in Arabic, for those who may wish to matriculate in the Middle-East and other Arab speaking countries.

It is our commitment that young people in our care will grow as unique individuals and have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Our motto, Learning for Life, means we will not limit ourselves to the pursuit of academic excellence. Far from it; we offer a holistic approach that allows students to pursue their intellectual, artistic, technological, and sporting passions.

Our Vision

What We Stand For

The vision of The New Abuja Capital International College is to lay the foundation of learning for life.

We will achieve this within a safe, secure, purpose‑built campus, providing an ideal environment for students to experience personal growth, as well as reach their academic potential.

professional learning community, dedicated to constantly evolving their teaching practices. 

We will provide our students with the most effective instruction, with a curriculum that will allow them to pursue post‑secondary options anywhere in the world.  All while promoting the self‑discipline and life‑skills that will allow our students to maximize those options, to the benefit of themselves and their respective communities, throughout their adult lives.

Our Mission

What We Stand For

The New Abuja Capital International College will make its vision a reality by offering  a broad, flexible curriculum, in line with international standards. 

We will build on this foundation in multiple ways, including:

    • Offering multiple languages and certificate programs, specifically tailored to each student’s post‑secondary aspirations.


    • Marrying the evidenced-based instruction with cutting edge technology, allowing teachers to both effectively monitor, and provide timely feedback to students.


    • Interweaving academic study, life skill development, and co‑curricular activities within a framework of pastoral care in which each part is an essential component, just as every strand of a tapestry brings essential value to a total work of art.


    • Developing the whole person with a range of programs that foster the scholastic, creative, physical, personal and social growth of the students.


  • creating a whole school ethos, designed to motivate and awaken the minds and hearts of its students and staff to realize their full human potential.
