Primary School

The elementary school is an exciting place to learn. Our focus is on student learning, and we work hard to develop the basic skills of literacy (English and Arabic) and numeracy. We have designated time for social studies, science, physical education, art, music, library, and Islamic Studies, and we provide special interest and sports-focused activities in our after school programs.

The elementary school strives to support the well-being and social-emotional development of each child as we embrace a holistic approach to student learning. All of our students work hard to demonstrate four characteristics – be responsible, be respectful, be safe, and be your best. We intentionally teach these expectations to all students and practice them. We also encourage students to demonstrate global mindedness and to take responsibility for their learning.

In addition, we take a team approach to student learning, and we encourage all of our parents to be highly involved. We have regular meetings with our families to share information about our school’s curricula, procedures, and systems as well as conduct trainings for our parents in a variety of topics. We want families to feel welcome and encourage parents to stop by or call the office at any time.

Secondary School

During your senior year, you will complete a Capstone Project to prove to the graduation committee that you are prepared to receive an Awsaj Academy diploma and go on to higher studies and/or employment. This is a requirement for graduation.

Maintaining a portfolio of your best work each year helps you see how well you are progressing toward these goals. You can use the same portfolio to show off your abilities to university admissions offices and potential employers as you approach graduation.

By graduation, Awsaj Students will be academically, socially and emotionally, prepared for post school life relevant to their needs, abilities and aspirations, in Qatar or abroad.


Awsaj Academy follows the International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC), International Primary Curriculum (IPC) and International Middle Years Curriculum (IMYC).

It is a comprehensive, thematic, creative curriculum, with a clear process of learning & specific learning goals for every subject. It also develops international mindedness & encourages personal learning and is adapted to individual children’s needs.

Children learn best when they want to learn. This is why all of the IPC’s thematic units of learning are designed to appeal to children’s interests and help them to learn more about the world around them.

Themed units help children to see how subjects are both independent and interdependent. This enables them to see the big picture of their learning, make connections across different subjects, and talk about a topic from multiple perspectives.

Subject goals cover the knowledge, skills and understanding of children relating to the subjects they are learning. There are subject learning goals for Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, ICT & Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Art and Society.
