Our History

Archbishop Peter Akinola International Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools Afikpo is a divine mandate and our resolution to raise CHRISTIAN DISCIPLES, who will be found worthy in character and learning. The school began as a journey of faith on the 12th of June 2010 under the leadership of His Lordship, the Rt. Rev’d. Paul Amechi Udogu JP Dip.TH; Dip CRED, B.D, MA (Bishop of Afikpo Diocese).

Our school which is co-educational provides Crèche, Nursery, Primary and Secondary Education, first resumed for Academic activities during the 2011/2012 academic year on the 9th of September 2011.

The school is named after the Apostle of Evangelism in the Anglican Communion, the immediate past Primate. His Grace, The Most Rev’d. Dr. Peter Jasper Akinola, as a memorial for his good works, missionary exploits in the Church of Nigeria and beyond and for being instrumental to the creation of Afikpo Missionary Diocese.

The school provides a positive environment in which the pupils / students, teachers and parents interact in the teaching and learning process. The programs in the school are highly student-focused with the aim of offering an education that affects the head, the heart and the hands positively. A major development of all of the school’s facilities is ongoing, making the school facilities among the most modern in Nigeria and Ebonyi State in particular. The development is strongly focused on enhancing the learning environment of the school. Specialized programs for all students in Computing and Information Technology, Entrepreneurship, Library and Physical Education are provided.

The school is a designated Lighthouse School for Gifted Education programs, providing a whole school approach, the horizon program, for students of all ages. Students with particular learning needs and Indigenous support activities are an integral part of the school’s program. Opportunities are available for students to participate in wide range of curriculum extension activities, including band and instrumental instruction, choirs, student leadership and governance programs, sporting, social, agriculture, skill acquisition and community caring programs.

The School Management is undertaking significant upgrading of the entire school facilities including playground, the development of a dedicated facility for younger students and more challenging play equipment for older students and a Teaching School partnership with Calvary Academy USA. The school intends to utilize the rich cherished and nurtured historical and multicultural heritage of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) towards providing students with a positive sense of their place in the social fabric of Africa.

Hence our school is positioned to be a centre for academic excellence and Christian discipleship with the Mission of providing adequate opportunity and Christian training to all students and pupils to enable them excel in all areas of life. To enhance the attainment of this vision, we have provided boarding facilities for students who wish to live within the school premises and provide adequate modern teaching and learning ICT facilities with highly skilled and qualified teachers.

The School, by the grace of God is a household name in rendering excellent educational services in Afikpo North Local Government Area, Ebonyi State in particular and Nigeria in general.

Discipline, professionalism and commitment to excellence have helped us to be focused in bringing up young adults in the fear of God, love of humanity and the fatherland.
