About Nova Pioneer
Imagine a world in which every young person across Africa attends a school that truly sets them up for success in the 21st century; a school that cares about individual students and allows them to explore the world around them; a school that focuses more on developing skills than on memorizing content. At Nova Pioneer, we have done more than just imagine this future – we are bringing it to life. Nova Pioneer is a pan-African, independent network of schools offering high quality, accessible education from pre-primary through to secondary school. We use a unique, enquiry-based learning approach that encourages students to ask “why” instead of telling them the “what”. It allows them to form their own thinking through exploration, investigation and collaboration. Nova Pioneer currently has 8 schools in South Africa and Kenya with a vision to launch 100 schools and reach tens of thousands of students across the African continent in the next decade.
