Children are taught a rigorous, traditional curriculum in English with emphasis on science, social studies, reading and math.  The AAH education program encourages participation, debate, critical thinking and self-expression.

AAH provides students at its school with breakfast and lunch each day. All students receive a uniform and school supplies. Attendance at AJS is close to 100% each day, compared to 70% in public schools.

Many of AJS students are sponsored by donors in the U.S. or elsewhere in the world. In addition to critical financial support, sponsors provide personal attention and moral encouragement through the exchange of letters and photos.

Because of the high standards implemented at the primary level, for 19 consecutive years now, 100% of AAH students have passed the Primary Leaving Exam, the national exam taken by all students in Uganda at the end of primary school.  As a result, nearly every student has advanced to secondary school, a striking contrast to other schools in the region. 

AJS students actively engage in activities like debating, drama, singing, and a variety od sports activities. We bring up an all round child in Academics, Behaviour and Charactor.

Secondary education

AAH partners with 23 government and private secondary schools across the country. We currently sponsor 352 students from senior one upto  senior six. We have accomplished this via our Secondary School Scholarship Program which is funded by a caring community of volunteers, child sponsors, donors, partners and friends in the United States, Uganda, and throughout the world. Many of our sponsored students attend some of the best schools in Uganda such as Uganda Martyrs Namugongo, Seeta High School, or Trinity College Nabbingo. Almost all of our students who complete secondary school join university or vocational school.


For years now, students on the AAH program have been graduating from university or vocational institutions with degrees, diplomas, and certificates.  We now have 270 graduates from tertiary schooling.  Our graduates include nurses, teachers, public administrators, auto mechanics, social workers, etc.  Another 121 are presently enrolled in tertiary institutions, pursuing certificates, diplomas, and degrees in many academic disciplines.


The AAH OUTREACH PROGRAM connects the AAH school to 26 local primary schools in Uganda. In addition, AAH helped fund the re-building of Bulobi Primary School and a new classroom block at Bumwalye Primary School. AAH provides resources, teacher training, and PLE practice tests. Schools from within the Outreach program are linked to schools in the US on a sister school relationship when the opportunity arises. To date, 6 Uganda schools have partners in the US. Successful students from AAH Outreach Schools are given scholarships to join secondary school.
