CTL Academy Celebrates our 2022 Graduates

Our 2022 Graduation Day was on June 8. We celebrated four groups of students at two events. The morning event was for our four-year-old PreK children who transitioned to Kindergarten and our Fifth Grade students who completed elementary school and are moving on to Middle School while the evening event celebrated our 8th Grade students who completed Middle School and headed to High School, and our High School Seniors who are off to college.

We were very honored to have Ambassador Mary Beth Leonard, the US Ambassador to Nigeria and Her Excellency, Hajia Aisha Bagudu as our guest speakers for the morning event. Ambassador Marybeth Leonard was also the Graduation Speaker at the evening High School Graduation. The events were also well attended by our distinguished parents and guests.

We are happy to announce that our high school seniors are off to the colleges of their choice. Isomineh Omoh is off to George Mason University where she plans to major in Economics and Valerie Okeke will pursue a major in Economics and Computer Science at Philander Smith College.
Congratulations to the Class of 2022!

Ubuntu: I am because we are….

Our theme for the 2021-22 school year is Ubuntu. Or more accurately, "ubuntu ngumuntu ngabantu." Ubuntu is an African philosophy that defines the self through community. It translates roughly to I am because we are. Nelson Mandela explains this way, “In Africa there is a concept known as ‘ubuntu’ – the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.”

This year at CTL, this ideal embodies our desire to grow as individuals by growing and enhancing our community, working together and sharing experiences through cooperative learning, project-based activities and maximizing opportunities for reflection, collaboration and new learning.
