The academy is located in a peaceful community of Lugbe within the FCT; It is easily accessible from the city centre, the airport and also outside of Abuja as Lugbe is just along the main Yar'adua express way of Abuja.

The natural beauty, the greenery, the ornamental hedges coupled with purpose-built buildings make Premiere Academy a remarkable place to live-in and learn.


Premiere Academy students, as future leaders, are guided and shaped by the standard of critical thinking, high achievements, ethical principles and discipline.


To develop children into leaders through providing a rigorous educational program that combines academic achievement with personal development. Creating well adjusted, socially aware and responsible children who will go on to become "THE PRIDE OF THE NATION"

The Academy can boast that every child that passes through this school has become an; effective communicator, a world class citizen, an independent learner, an achiever, a critical thinker, an ethical individual.


Students' classroom distribution ranges from 18 to 20 children per class for JS1 - JS3. This allows for closeness and personal touch by the teacher to all the pupils in the class. For the senior college, they break into career paths which are distinct from each other.

There are four career paths at the Academy, namely.
