The USAP Community School is accepting applications from qualified O’level students to begin A’level in January 2020. Our two year A’ level only boarding school is in service of the fact that there are many determined and talented, economically-disadvantaged students in Zimbabwe who only lack financial resources and access to information to better their educational futures.
The USAP Community School will be a transformative/unique educational experience merging a rigorous Cambridge A’level science curriculum, an intensive English reading and writing class, computer literacy, college preparation and the mentorship of our growing and active alumni network. Throughout their A’level education, students will receive timely and individualized university advising complemented with contact with alumni at different levels of university or professional careers.
To apply to join the USAP Community School, you must be either a current O’level student writing your exams in November 2019, a June 2019 O’level candidate who has already taken exams or a student with strong O level results who has not yet started A level studies for financial reasons. Acceptance to USAP is very competitive; we encourage applicants to consider applying if they have, or are projected to get mostly As and possibly Bs in their O level exams. We are looking for students who match all of our four USAP criteria to join the school: academic excellence, demonstrated leadership potential, an ethos of giving and economic disadvantage. You must be able to demonstrate financial disadvantage; that your family would not be capable of financing high quality A level education or university application processes on your own. No qualified student will be turned away for financial reasons.
The application can be found here on our Apply page and has a deadline of October 21, 2019. Students print, complete and scan applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also collect and return applications in person or by Swift/FedEx to Education Matters at 23 Connaught Road, to Turner Memorial Library in Mutare, Gweru Memorial Library or at the NUST American Space at 55 Jason Moyo in Bulawayo.
