The James Hope College (JHC), a co-educational initiative of the Jim Ovia Foundation, has expanded its operation through the acquisition of the facilities of American International School Lagos (AISL) Lekki campus, Lagos.
This was disclosed in a statement made available to journalists after the signing ceremony at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The statement said JHC, a private co-educational secondary school with excellent result in International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and West African Examination Council (WAEC) will commence academic activities in September 2020.
It added that the school will also offer full scholarship to 40 per cent of the students on merit in order to ensure that JHC’s equal opportunity model of academic excellence is extended to all students regardless of their state of origin.
The statement reads in part: “In the past six years since its inception, James Hope College, a private co-educational secondary school, which offers a combination of British and Nigerian curricula, has recorded tremendous academic achievements in the school through hard and smart work which has helped in building enough momentum for continual growth over a short period of time.
“In the first IGCS examinations, JHC students recorded 87 per cent A- C grades in all 16 registered subjects for the November 2018 IGCSE
“For the May/June 2019 WAEC, JHC recorded 100 per cent A1-C6 in minimum of 7 subjects, including English and Mathematics.
“With the acquisition of this property, James Hope College is set to replicate in Lagos the outstanding academic performance it is known for. More importantly, the offer of full scholarship to 40 per cent of the students on merit ensures that the school’s equal opportunity model of academic excellence is extended to all students regardless of their state of origin,” the statement said.
