Who we are

The Sheikh Zayed Private Academies are a group of schools established to offer students a blended curriculum that promotes a strong sense of Emirati identity within an international framework. Our academies rated (Outstanding) on the National Identity Mark Framework evaluation.


This outstanding global education provides students with increased opportunities as they move beyond the school setting and into the workplace.


The schools’ founding vision included the belief that, for the current and future generations of students to take their place as leaders in UAE society, they would be more effective if they understood the culture and heritage of their nation.


In addition to a vibrant, quality education, students would require highly developed Arabic literacy skills and a deep knowledge of the UAE’s values and culture. These beliefs are embodied in the school’s values which are to develop successful young leaders who are confident, self-reflective, and global citizens.


The Sheikh Zayed Private Academies (SZPA) comprise The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Girls (SZPAG) and The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Boys (SZPAB). Both schools offer a premiere academic education to children from Pre-KG through grade 12. They are co-educational from Pre-KG through grade 3. From grade 4 onwards, the schools are single-gender: girls-only at SPZAG and boys-only at SZPAB.
