School Curriculum

Junior Secondary

In the first three years of secondary school, the school emphasises the basic skills in the core subjects which are English Language, Mathematics, Basic Science, Basic Technology, Social Studies, Agricultural Science, French, Christian Religious Education, Fine Art, Physical Education, Nigerian Languages, Computer Literacy, Home Economics/Health Education.

After the first three years, the students are prepared to take their Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) with the respective examining bodies like the Enugu State Education Development Centre (EDC) and the National Examination Council (NECO).

Senior Secondary

In the fourth, fifth and sixth year, students are prepared for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (SSCE) which usually takes place during the third term of their sixth year. Each student takes the core subjects, namely: English Language, Mathematics, Geography, History, English Literature, Biology, Agriculture Science, Nigeria Languages, Further Mathematics, Physics, History, Chemistry and Fine Art.

The students are then prepared to take the SSCE with the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Examination Council (NECO).


Mid-Term Tests and Termly Examination

ALIS organises Assessment Tests for the students at the middle of every term and a termly examination at the end of every term. The third term examination is usually the promotion examination. The termly examination results are usually collated from the summation of classworks, projects, assessment tests and the termly examination.

Continous Assessment

This is based on class work both written and oral, assignments, regular tests and homework. The Continuous Assessment usually form part of the BECE and SSCE Examination results collation.


ALIS has a homework policy that stresses the value placed on the support of parents and provides opportunity for them to assess the performance of their children. We believe homework is an integral part of the lives of our students, and quite necessary for students to extend and consolidate studies started in the class and to develop the skills for enriching independent learning. Consequent upon that, parents are to guide the children on how to go about the homeworks and not do the homeworks for them.
