Alpha Beta has had a strong focus on equipping our students with entrepreneurial leadership skills for almost a decade.
In our quest to raise a new generation of ethical, creative and resilient African leaders, Entrepreneurial Leadership is a key area of focus especially for our students in the Secondary Department. The ALP curriculum ensures that students receive structured opportunities to improve their understanding, skills, values, personal and social development with the aim of becoming better leaders. Through experiential, reflective and service learning approaches, students develop socio-emotional, critical thinking and leadership skills as well as Christian values, communication and self-leadership skills.
