SZPA for Boys

The Sheikh Zayed Private Academy for Boys is an American Curriculum school, with a strong Arabic and Islamic approach, with emphasis on local culture and awareness and with programs such as UAE National Studies and My Identity. Maintaining an appreciation for the UAE's international community and world at large, the school’s vision aims to help secure the future of the UAE, by providing strong community role-models who understand their heritage and traditions and are also equipped with the skills and life-long learning dispositions necessary to embrace the challenges of tomorrow and to take on leadership roles.

We achieve this at SZPAB by providing an excellent, accredited American curriculum that ensures that all students are able to make the most of their talents and abilities. To support this aim we benefit from a ‘state of the art school’ with Apple Distinguished School status and with all the innovation and facilities one would expect from a leading school in the 21st century; excellent extra-curricular opportunities and a faculty of teachers and support staff that are of the highest quality.

Our aim is summed up in the school’s motto: Honoring the past, educating for the future.
