About Us

World-class facilities

PIA is home to modern, cutting-edge facilities, such as purpose-built science labs, high-tech music equipment, projectors and excellent speakers in each classroom. Wi-Fi is available across the campus; students also enjoy unlimited access to our extensive library and world-class sporting facilities, which include a gymnasium, an astro turf pitch, swimming pool, tennis, basketball, indoor volleyball and badminton courts, and a 500m, cushion-loaded athletics track.

We are also proud to offer our students modern, extremely comfortable boarding facilities, which boast 24-hour medical facilities and a trained doctor in residence onsite; the Academy is also situated in an easy distance of a first-class, international standard hospital.

Globally respected IB Programme

Catering for students from nursery level through to the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (Grades 11 & 12), PIA offers unique educational opportunities for learners of all ages.

IB approaches to teaching and learning are transdisciplinary throughout the primary years, interdisciplinary during the middle years and disciplinary in the diploma years. Connections between and among disciplines are valued at every level.

PIA’s commitment to cultivating highly skilled global citizens is reflected in its approach to the IB programme, which encourages students to think internationally and act locally. International perspective is woven into the curriculum as a key value in the understanding that what unites us as human beings is greater than what divides us.

Service learning

A Bring Your Own Device school with a future-thinking philosophy, PIA has experiential and service learning permeating its curriculum.  Students spend time learning outside the classroom, facing challenges that, through action and reflection, help to develop them into autonomous young people who have a sense of personal responsibility and act with integrity. 

As we believe that keeping our teachers updated on how best to use technology in the classroom is extremely important, we not only send staff on various training courses and conferences but also host an Apple sponsored workshop at PIA. This is, of course, offered as an addition to a programme of internal training and development.
