Core Programs

Ethiopian National Curriculum - Currently, students enrolled into grade 9-12 cover the following courses required by the national curriculum: Amharic, Biology, Business Education, Chemistry, Civics, Economics, English, Ge’ez, Geography, History, Information and Communication Technology, Mathematics, and Physics.

Co-Curricular - Students are expected to give as much attention to after-school programs as they do to in-class instructions. Clubs include the Photography Club, Science & Technology Club, Music Club, Philosophy Club and others.

Course Integration - All subjects are taught with a multidisciplinary pedagogical approach to foster the ability to see things from various perspectives and enhances leadership skill development.

Lecture Series – On a quarterly basis, Lebawi invites prominent and highly accomplished individuals to lead a series to help our students and the school community identify the connections between in-class instructions with that of real-world situations.

Special Education – The Special Ed. Program is consistent with Ethiopia’s "Education for All" and designed to address the fact that only 1% of children identified with special needs actually attend school. The program’s objective is to develop the full intellectual, emotional and motor potential of children with special needs, so that they can become productive members of their communities.

Curriculum Plus - In addition to the national Curriculum, Lebawi students study the Ge’ez and German languages, attend a formal Creative Practice course, participate in entrepreneurship workshops, and are expected to complete a senior year leadership seminar.

Evening with Lebawian - An Evening with Lebawian is a monthly program designed to provide an opportunity for students to share poems, plays, pros and other demonstration of creative talents to the school community.

Community Meeting – An African proverb states, “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together.” With that spirit, the entire Lebawi community meets each Friday to resolve conflicts and acknowledge each other’s achievements.

Experiential Learning – Through this program students are given the opportunities to test their classroom learning through work experience. Rising eleventh graders assume the responsibility of school operations under faculty supervision.

Community Service – Lebawi Academy is serious about giving back to its community and regards serving ones’ community as central to true success. Lebawi provides ample opportunities to initiate, design, and implement community service projects.
