Teacher/Pupil ratio 1:6 Founded in 1997, TAICO is one of Nigeria's leading co-educational boarding schools for Secondary pupils, set in 450 hectares of land in a rural setting between Lagos and Abuja, in a very conducive learning environment, with exceedingly high academic standards. The College is founded on Christian principles and values, operates the Faculty system and has very strong pastoral care.

The curriculum is a blend of British and Nigerian Curricula leading to National and International examinations including University of Cambridge 'O' and 'A' levels, SAT, TOEFL and the DELF French Examinations. We also teach the one year International Foundation Year Programme for EDEXEL and Canadian Universities.

We have superb modern facilities including a state-of-the-art medical centre with two highly qualified doctors and eight nurses and equipped with x-ray, a diagnostic laboratory and pharmacy.

The College is well known for its exceedingly high academic standards with last year's Graduating Class gaining a 99.8% pass rate of which 99.6% were grades A-C. Our holistic approach to education places an equal emphasis on academics, sport, music, drama and the arts. This rich and varied curriculum compliments and extends the students' learning experiences and provides them with the skills they need to succeed in the world beyond school. Graduates proceed to leading UK, American and Canadian universities.

We are able to recruit excellent teachers not only from Nigeria but also Ghana, Cameroon and the United Kingdom. It is to be noted that our teachers bring passion, energy and enthusiasm to their role and are incredibly committed to supporting the aspirations and achievements of our students both in and out of the classroom.

Our students enter National and International Competitions where, without exception, they gain either First, Second or Third place.

TAICO is THE place to be!
