Why Aldar Academies

  • Why Aldar Academies

“Empowering our next generation to shape our future”

This is the Aldar Academies purpose; one big idea that has a positive influence both in the classroom and out in the wider community. As a leading provider of private education we have a responsibility to uphold the highest standards of education as we guide the next generation. By doing so, society benefits greatly, because this same generation will be the one to lead our future.

But just how do we meet our purpose?

A collaborative, Emirate-wide network
We make our big idea happen using the strength of our network. With six academies in Abu Dhabi and one in Al Ain, we share knowledge and best practice between our exceptional teachers every single day. Ultimately, this has helped us to become greater as a whole than the sum of our parts.

A leader for education innovation
Alongside skilled and qualified teachers, our entire network also combines the very latest education technology, which we incorporate with the curriculum in the most effective way. Students build their skills and acquire knowledge with some of the very same tools they’ll eventually use in the professional world, preparing them for a digital future.

A direct path to international universities
Once a student becomes a part of the Aldar Academies community, they can walk a path with us straight to university. Aldar Academies’ students gain an automatic placement to other academies in the network as they progress from primary school right up to post-16 study, avoiding any waiting lists.

An accessible, exceptional education
With education playing such a pivotal role in the communities we serve, it is our aim to reach as many young people in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain as we possibly can. To this end, we have positioned our tuition fees to make our celebrated education accessible to more families across both Emirates.

For more reasons to trust Aldar Academies with your child’s education, simply scroll down the page to explore more about how we teach, our facilities, and more need-to-know information from across the network. 


    In 2016/17 our students achieved exceptional results and have been offered places at high-ranking universities both locally and worldwide, including Oxford, Imperial College, Harvard, Cambridge, Durham and Abu Dhabi NYU.

Engagement with parents is key to the effective development of each child’s academic progress and achievement.  All Academies encourage the involvement of parents in aspects of the life of the school which are pertinent to the academic success and achievement of students.

Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra-curricular activities are a fundamental part of the curriculum offered across Academies because we recognise the importance of life outside the world of scholarship, providing a refreshing counterbalance to academic studies.  Our planned activities enhance the formal curriculum developing students’ skills in a range of aptitudes and within diverse opportunities.

  • Our Academy of Excellence

    Upholding our core values, Aldar Academies School of Excellence has been established to develop the competences, skills and attributes of our talented students to a higher level than they might achieve in a ‘traditional’ schoolroom environment.

    Through recognition of a young person’s exceptional ability or talent, and their acceptance into the Academy, we are able to provide a pupil with educational challenges and opportunities both within and beyond the curriculum to stretch their learning to the next level. Furthering our overarching promise, the Academy of Excellence aims to create an ethos and environment that engages and inspires all students, thus creating a passion for learning throughout the all of our schools.

People of Determination

At Aldar Academies we welcome students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), recognising their strengths and valuing their contribution to our school and wider community.

Each school has a Head of Inclusion who is an experienced and highly qualified special educator, supported by a team of skilled teachers, many with specialist SEN qualifications.
