The Principal’s Welcome


Welcome to the Infant Jesus Academy Website.

Infant Jesus Academy, Asaba is a Catholic Co-educational Boarding School. It is a world class private school situated beautifully opposite the Government House of Delta State in Asaba. We offer both Nigerian and British curricula. Our academic program provides differentiated instruction to meet the needs of each student to the best of our ability.

The entire spectrum of educational program at IJA is academically challenging and engaging on every child. It is all about the child. We, as seasoned and passionate educators offer holistic learning programs that would inculcate in our children all the values that are lacking in our society today. The spiritual, emotional and physical development of every child is our mantra. Hence the moral and value-based education, solid academic base and powers of problem solving and creative thinking are what we strive for on daily basis.

I therefore look forward to seeing parents and their wards who want to share in our philosophy at Infant Jesus Academy.
