For ACS High School students wishing to further their education beyond ACS program offerings, ACS has partnered with globally leading course providers to add more choices and opportunities for our students.
Pamoja Education is the only online course provider that has been licensed by IB to offer IB courses online. Pamoja online IB courses provide students with a global learning experience, preparing them for an internet-enabled world. More than 450 schools around the world currently work with Pamoja in order to provide additional course choices for students; build more flexibility into student timetables; provide students with broader educational experience, and accommodate students who transfer from another school.
Students wishing to enroll in an online course need to have a record of strong academic performance, consistent Approaches to Learning (AtLs) and the approval of the IB DP Coordinator. Although students will be working primarily with an IB-trained online teacher, a site-based coordinator for Pamoja students will monitor the student’s progress in the subject area in school.
With the exception of some cases based on our school policy, students will be required to pay a non-refundable annual fee for the delivery of the online course. An up-to-date list of courses offered by Pamoja can be found on their website www.pamojaeducation.com.
