About Us


Savannah International Academy (SIA) is a private co-educational secondary institution of international standard, located in Tamale, in the Northern Region of Ghana. The school offers a curriculum based on the UK National Curriculum framework leading up to the International GCSE and International A’ Levels.
SIA is currently a day school but will soon become the only international boarding school in the north with a unique mission to not only become a centre of academic excellence but to provide purposeful education that will shape and grow future leaders.

The concept of SIA was borne from the recognition of the current educational gap between the northern regions of Ghana (Upper West, Upper East and Northern Regions) and the southern part of the country. Primarily established as an attempt to bridge the glaring gap between the standard of educational provision in the north and south, SIA is an important driver of the development agenda for the northern part of Ghana and the country as a whole.
