ACS Doha Celebrates a Year at Its New Al Kheesa Campus
 

Doha, Qatar – 11, June 2021:  ACS International School Doha has held a ceremony to mark the completion of its first year at its new landmark school campus in Al Kheesa.

A commemorative plaque was unveiled at the school, in the presence of Mr Robert Cody, Head of School, with parents from the Parent School Organisation in attendance.  A student from ACS Doha read out a personal message from Mr Tim Cagney, Chief Executive of ACS International Schools.
Now fully established as ACS Doha’s new home, the COVID-secure campus spans 60,000 square metres and has been designed to accommodate almost 2,500 students. In addition to dedicated Early Childhood, Lower, Middle and High School buildings, campus facilities include a full-sized football pitch, all-weather athletics track, swimming pools, drama studios, music rooms, a wellness suite, science laboratories and well-stocked libraries.


Mr Mohammed Sultan Al Jaber, Chairman of Al Jaber Group W.L.L., sponsored the project, heading up the Group which managed the development and construction process. Speaking prior to the event, Mr Al Jaber stressed the importance of the new campus within the context of Qatar’s ambitious growth plans. “This new campus benefits the existing school community and also serve emerging districts such as Lusail and The Pearl. I am proud to have partnered with ACS Doha to deliver an international school that enhances Qatar’s educational offering and resonates with the National Vision 2030.”


Mr Robert Cody expressed his delight in seeing the new campus come alive during the past year, as the students have returned to school. “We were excited to welcome back our school community to our state-of-the-art campus. Amazing facilities, combined with a nurturing yet rigorous approach to teaching and learning, will continue to help our students gain entry to some of the very best colleges and universities around the world.”


In his personal message, Chief Executive Mr Tim Cagney spoke of ACS International Schools’ commitment to Qatar. “After more than 50 years of providing international education in the UK – and, for a decade now, in Qatar – we see the new ACS Doha campus as a landmark in our development and a significant contribution to the growth of Qatar. We are honoured to have worked closely with Mr Al Jaber and the Al Jaber Group W.L.L. on this important project. Our Doha school plays a key role in the ACS success story.”


Offering an international and American curriculum, ACS Doha is the only school in Qatar to offer both the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP) and the College Board’s Advanced Placement Programme (AP). 


The unveiling event was followed, on 4 June, by the first graduation from the new campus. A total of 33 High School Diploma students and 16 IB Diploma students will graduate – many going on to prestigious universities in the USA, Canada, UK, Netherlands, Qatar and UAE.
