WHY YOU SHOULD BRING YOUR CHILD TO MEROSA ACADEMY
If you describe a system or an organisation as a citadel, it means it is a strong castle where people can shelter from danger, especially during a war or turbulence. Merosa is a citadel of learning where we provide shelter for young minds that are groomed for leadership tomorrow. There are several reasons why you should bring your children to Merosa Academy.
It is generally accepted that there cannot be adequate learning in an environment that is not conducive; at Merosa Academy, we provide a safe and conducive learning environment in and outside the classroom for our learners. We also provide quality facilities to suit our high standards. Our structures are first class and they are well-equipped with the latest technologies. Our classrooms are decorated with smart boards that are connected to the internet; pictorial images and charts that aid learning and they also communicate our encouragement to open expression. We celebrate learners that are disciplined and promote good character with guidelines that check negative behaviours like bullying.
Merosa Academy operates a dual educational system curriculum with the combination of the British and the Nigerian curriculum to enable our pupils/students to fit into any system and compete adequately both in Nigeria and abroad. This curriculum shapes the mind of children towards self-development in an ever-changing society. Of course, this will help create a solid balance when they step into a competitive society like ours today.
Our Early Years Foundation curriculum focuses on the following key areas: Numeracy, Literacy and Communication, Knowledge of the world (science), Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), Creative and Expressional Art, and different approaches to learning.
The early years foundation acts as a means of developing our children’s love for lifelong learning, thus acquiring important life skills that meet their social, physical, intellectual, cultural, creative and emotional needs.
Our primary school programme emphasises on the higher order thinking skills to challenge and stimulate students in English language (speaking, listening, reading and writing), Mathematics, History, Geography, Arts and Science. Our focus is to create independent, life-long and excited confident learners who will not only take pride in their cultural heritage, but will also take pride in global identity.
As a matter of principle, we focus on the needs of the child as well as the desires of our parents in order to make sure that their desires meet their expectations. Our vision is: To Set the Pace in raising highly responsive leaders in an ever-changing global Community. What would be the need and value of education if it cannot transform a people?
According to Oprah Winfrey, “Education is the key to unlocking the world, a passport to freedom.” At Merosa Academy, we have developed a clear communication system which cannot be faulted as parents are part of our development plan. Channels of communication have been put in place to ensure adequate relay of information in the system.
Today, we live in a world plagued with different kinds of diseases such as COVID-19 and Lassa fever, but at Merosa Academy, we are bravely and decisively handling the difficulties of these health challenges. As Chinua Achebe in Things Fall Apart puts it, “…since some hunters have learnt to shoot without missing, Eneke, the bird has decided to fly without perching.” We have also created health emergency system supported with the right facilities and qualified personnel.
Here in Merosa Academy, we have dependable and reliable transport system that are accessible to parents from different routes and directions. Their locations eases movement in and out of the school. We also have a serene learning environment that trains and nurtures pupils/students to prepare them for the future and not just to pass examination, which is also our ultimate goal. This serene environment is possible because of our adequate power system and backups, well equipped ICT labs and other science-based laboratories, as well as language and music/arts studios
On security, we have professionally trained security personnel who have prioritised the safety of lives and property of the Academy. Facilities like the CCTV cameras with night and day vision are installed both in open and hidden spots to back up our security system.
I echo the words of Norman Vincent Peale, “…change your thoughts and you change your world.” This is where Merosa Academy Abuja has drawn its strength and formula. In our schools, we have succeeded in selecting carefully great and qualified staff and teachers who we train and reorient to make sure our words measure up with the results we expect to achieve. Our teachers and other management and administrative staff have been groomed to respond to issues in timely manner, and in creative and efficient ways. Thus, leaners are prepared for the future challenges and leave their footprints on the sand of their time.
THE DIFFERENT LEVELS OF THE SCHOOL
Merosa Academy Abuja is a place for pupils/students of all ages and classes. From the early years up to the secondary school level, we have the capacity to accommodate everyone who comes to us. In this regard, we have the following structures in place:
The Early Years Foundation: This is a very critical and important stage in the development of any child. At this stage, our focus is on the psychological growth of our pupils. Through our structured curriculum, the pupils are introduced to phonics which aims at enhancing their speech pattern and building up their reading, listening and writing skills. This foundation year is further divided into four classes; the crèche, playgroup, pre-nursery and nursery.
In this stage, there are two classes, the Grade 1 & 2. The concepts that are introduced at the foundation years are expanded upon and taught in details. Systematically, the pupils at this stage are introduced to an array of subjects which are designed to prepare them for the next phase.
This is the final stage of the primary years. All programmes at this stage are robustly geared towards equipping our pupils with the right skills to approach academic challenges through the development of their comprehension, reasoning and presentation skills. We also introduce them to research and experiential activities that help develop their interpersonal relationship skills, as well as grow in self-confidence level. Finally, yet importantly, our pupils at this stage receive all round training to help them fly high in external examinations.
At graduation from the primary school, our students would be well-knowledgeable in the following areas.
Language & Music
Expressive Arts and Design
Physical, Social and Health Education
Geography & General Knowledge
Secondary school (Merosa Academy High School-MAHS)
At Merosa Academy High School (MAHS), both at the junior and senior schools, we furnish students with essential knowledge and skills for living. Using technology and modern structured learning system, we inculcate in them the ability and confidence to study, to understand and to apply successfully whatever they learn in the path they will later choose in life. We instil in them the ability to communicate freely and to gain a high level of competence and confidence in themselves. We help them build their sense of industriousness, responsibility and tolerance, as well as gaining moral, patriotic and ethical values.
At Merosa Academy High School (MAHS), we encourage and promote personal development and give each student a balanced training through our various extra-curriculum activities. These activities help them to contribute effectively to the school’s aim of producing individuals who are fully grounded in all areas.
The secondary school stage, of every child, is one of capacity building, and where foundation for a successful career is laid. We understand this, therefore, we pay close attention to each student and attend to them individually as if they are the only one in class. We observe, monitor and guide them through the years.
Equally, we know how important external examinations are to the future of each student; therefore, we utilize their individual uniqueness and abilities to guide them in their choice of subjects’ combinations. We guide them in their career choices and paths, and rigorously prepare the students for external examinations.
