A proud Saudi academic institution rising to realize the objectives of Vision 2030. Meet Nahda Academy.
As Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman wrote in his introduction to the 2030 Vision document recently, “All success stories start with a vision, and successful visions are based on strong pillars.” Nahda Academy is the result of a vision; a vision of Ms. Fatima Naghi to contribute to her beloved Saudi Arabia, with a generation of children who are ambassadors for their country, both locally and globally. Children who are proud of their Saudi cultural heritage and strong enough to take on the responsibility of driving Vision 2030 forward.
The strong pillars of Nahda’s foundation include a desire to dramatically change the way children learn and a determination to ensure they have the knowledge and skills required to lead Saudi Arabia in the 21st Century. We believe that it is vital to teach our youngsters, to be proud, knowledgeable, and informed Saudi citizens who are active members of society.
Our nation’s future is in their hands, and we want them to roll up their sleeves and claim their roles. The future for our children is probably the most exciting it has ever been; limitless opportunities are being opened up and environments conducive to maximize learning are being created. What is it, then, that we as responsible educators should be offering these children?
As members of Nahda Academy, a community of passionate, lifelong learners, we understand the importance of providing our pupils with the skills required to enter the 21st Century with confidence to successfully secure their future paths and careers.
We need to ensure that each and every one of them is empowered to become a morally responsible and emotionally resilient member of society, who is armored with the highest ethics; a natural result of immersion within our Saudi culture and Islamic values.
We are dedicated to providing first -hand experiences, never in isolation but with clear educational purpose and a connection to prior knowledge. As such, our children will develop their sense of curiosity, fuel their creativity, and nurture their inquiring and growing mind. Being emotionally literate, they work collaboratively with a spirit of mutual respect, and a strong belief in moderation, tolerance and respect.
These children benefit from a customized, integrated curriculum; a curriculum of much thought and research that will propel our children into the future. Fully equipped for every situation, these active global citizens will benefit from the security of knowing their true identity as Arab Saudis. We therefore immerse our pupils in Saudi history, culture, heritage and traditions. We then link them with their roots, while also giving high emphasis to our Arab identity in all aspects of our school’s daily life and academic program.
