About Lebawi

Who We Are

Lebawi Academy is an academic institution with a vision to inspire, nurture and develop the next generation of leaders for Ethiopia and beyond. This vision is inspired by the ever-widening gap between Ethiopian youth potential and access to educational opportunities that will cultivate and maximize their capabilities.

With this severely limited access to quality education, an unprecedented opportunity exists for Lebawi Academy to change the negative stereotype of Ethiopia and Africa as a place where knowledge is only consumed, and not created.

Core Principles

To successfully put this vision to practice the school has developed and has been implementing a curriculum model guided by five core principles:

  • The highest quality curriculum and instruction
  • Leadership through service
  • Locally robust and globally connected community
  • Technology and
  • Sustainability

This Lebawi experience is further enhanced with intensive English language literacy, and then capped with a programs where students explore the world of geopolitics/model UN, African Studies, Theory of Knowledge, Theatre and Intercultural Studies.

Lebawi Academy is seeking to be a pioneer in 21st century disruptive education with the primary objective of helping every student unleash his/her fullest potential. Lebawi Academy is creating an education system that embraces learners and in turn better prepares them to lead for the future.

No life is given without a purpose. All life has meaning, purpose, and direction. Education enables human beings to find individuated expressions of that purpose.
