ABOUT NOVA PIONEER

At Nova Pioneer, we have done more than just imagine this future, we are bringing it to life. Nova Pioneer is a pan-African, independent network of schools offering high quality, accessible education from pre-primary through secondary school.

It allows them to form their own thinking through exploration, investigation and collaboration.
