Who We Are

Green Hills Academy is an International Baccalaureate World School serving more than 2,000 learners from over 45 different countries. Established in 1997 with 130 students, GHA has grown steadily over the years. 

We are centrally located on a lush 26 acre campus in Nyarutarama, Kigali. Our spacious state-of-the-art classrooms are equipped with projectors and flooded with natural light. Our campus has four separate divisions – Nursery School, Primary School, Middle School and High School. Our facilities include science and ICT labs, music and art rooms, a gym, pool and sports field. We also have girls and boys boarding houses that provide a wonderful living and learning environment for our boarding learners. 

Green Hills Academy is a Candidate School* for the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. GHA is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Green Hills Academy believes is important for our learners.


Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme, or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit www.ibo.org.


GHA is authorized by the International Baccalaureate Organization to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Grades 11 and 12.
