The Aretean, Nigeria’s first Ivy League College is set to begin academic activities in Abuja with a Summer Camp on July 5.
The school runs a British/Nigeria academic curriculum and leadership courses “that expose the students to a complete circle of training and development.”
The college with a world-class hostel facility has qualified teaching and non-teaching staff, including renowned British and African scholars.
Addressing selected journalists in Abuja ahead of the official opening of the College, the Proprietress, Uloma Nwosu-Rochas, said the idea of the school was to bring back culture to the educational system, “where it is not just about education but character and culture.”
According to her, “the Aretean is set to breed a whole new generation of leaders by reinforcing the need for responsibility, character and intelligence.”
She disclosed that the school is affiliating with some renowned Colleges in the UK and will be carrying out exchange programmes.
Also while visiting the College, former Liberian President, Helen Johnson-Sirleaf, described it as an impactful initiative that will produce a complete African child that will provide leadership which will propel the continent to global reckoning.
The first African female President noted further that education is about the only tool that can liberate and lift up Africa, adding that the idea of impacting leadership skills in students at early years will ensure the emergence of great leaders that can compete with their contemporaries across the world.
