The ACC Primary School
Education and Training Center
The African Children’s Choir Primary School is a thriving campus where all Choir children receive their primary education before and after the tour.
Laying A Solid Foundation
At the ACC Primary School, the children enjoy low teacher-to-student ratios, have access to proper learning materials and technology, and are encouraged to ask questions and pursue their dreams. In addition to the traditional Ugandan curriculum, the students develop their talents with training in music, dance, art, sports, computer studies and life skills.
Primary Education Needs
Our school addresses all the needs of our students during their Primary education. Students are cared for by loving staff and receive the physical, emotional, and spiritual support needed to reach their full potential.
Fundamental to the ethos of the school is a sense of social responsibility and desire to share the love of Christ within the community. Students participate in student led outreaches and community work projects. Empowered by these experiences and the knowledge that they can make a difference, graduating students continue with such projects throughout their secondary, college and adult lives.
Our children share a common experience and common goal, .
Graduation and Beyond
Students graduating from the primary school consistently achieve excellent results in the National Primary Leaving Exams and go on to study at top tier schools based on their scores and placement testing. At Empower, students continue in our ChangeMaker programs designed to build on the foundation laid by the primary school in providing personal and spiritual development.
Music For Life continues the sponsorship of those in the ChangeMaker program through University/College level. Today alumni are fulfilling the motto by helping bring positive change to Africa in a wide variety of fields like medicine, education, relief & development, ministry, business, law, and more.
