ADA School

Aligned with the mission of ADA University, ADA School aspires to cultivate highly intellectual young minds who are closely collaborating, effectively communicating members of the global community with ethics and a sense of citizenship. The School will welcome its first students as of Fall 2019 and will serve both local and international youth in grades 10 and 11.  

Conveniently located on ADA University campus in Baku, Azerbaijan, ADA School is the beginning of the education journey of future undergraduates and graduates. The curriculum offers a breadth of knowledge in multiple disciplines combined with communication and leadership skills much needed in the 21st century. We inspire students to love learning, adopt critical thinking and develop teamwork spirit, yet be independent and formulate their own goals.  With the global outlook and traditions of academic excellence of ADA University, the school alumni will be competitive in admission processes to universities, whether through the State Examination Center (SEC) or SAT exams. 

ADA Faculty and administrators are deeply invested in meeting and expanding the passion for the education of some of the brightest high schoolers in the nation and the world. With a roster of around 40 courses plus independent study and a vibrant campus life, the ADA School wishes to create an environment that prepares students for higher education and the interconnected global economy.

ADA School stands as a laboratory for the School of Education of ADA University, aiming to create a continuum in student learning by better aligning school-undergraduate-graduate levels of education. Through this and other notable international practices, ADA School intends to further enhance the quality of education at ADA University in the first place and to contribute to the development of new trends in the national education system.

The medium of instruction at ADA School is English. For those students whose English proficiency level will be below the required IELTS 5.0, certain subjects will be taught in the Azerbaijani language during the first year of study (Grade 10).
