Anglican International Academy Abuja kicks off, Okoriko appointed administrator
The Anglican International Academy, situated at Plot 3, Cadastral Zone C00, Institution and Research District, at Zhidu, around Lugbe area, off Airport Road Abuja, which started in September, 2019 under the leadership of two Vice Principals for Administration and Academics, Mrs. Nkiruka Nwofor and Mr. Oluwakayode Bamigboye, resumed this January with a seasoned administrator and Education Secretary of the Diocese of Abuja, the Venerable Syrenius Dangana Okoriko, assuming office as the School’s Administrator, following an appointment by the Primate of the Church of Nigeria and the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Abuja, the Most Revd. Nicholas D. Okoh.
The co-educational mission school, with a chaplain, Revd. Jerry Marcus, started the year’s activities with a special service in which the new Administrator, the Ven. Syrenius Okoriko encouraged the students and staff to be humble and submissive. He took his homily text from 1 Peter 5:5-6 and informed the students and staff that humility is key to receiving God’s blessings. He urged the students not to be proud, so that they could achieve the purpose for which their parents/guardians sent them to the school. He then concluded by informing all present that they all needed to submit themselves to God to fulfil the purpose of the vision for the School.
The school, which was initially registered as the Anglican Boys Grammar School (to complement the Anglican Girls Grammar School in Gudu District, Abuja), was later modified to be a co-educational outfit for both boys and girls and named, “the Anglican International Academy” on the 22nd of April, 2015, so that the huge amount invested in the institution will benefit more people.
The academy, which is well equipped with modern structures, facilities and gadgets in the Science and Arts laboratories and affordable school fees, admits only JS1 students, due to a deliberate policy of nurturing the students from the scratch. It is designed to provide quality faith based education to boys and girls of the Anglican Diocese of Abuja and beyond in accordance with the rites and doctrines of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) and universal best educational practices.
According to the school’s Proprietor, the Most Rev Nicholas D. Okoh, the school is geared towards raising godly children, trained for Jesus and the society; and producing boys and girls who are full of integrity and honour and who understand the dignity of labour. It seeks to train a generation steeped in excellence in all they do, a generation whose faith is in God and whose Integrity is unquestionable.
