Academic Methodology

Active Learning

Group collaboration and interactive discussion prepare students to work in teams and be prepared for the kinds of teamwork-related challenges that they will face in the workplace

Information Technology

All students must be computer literate by the time they graduate and our student-to-computer ratio of 2-to-1 outpaces other universities in the region and exposes students to technology


Through on-campus groups such as the leadership club and student government, students are empowered both in and out of the classroom to take on leadership roles and become role models in their communities

English Communication

As an English-only campus, Akilah students learn quickly through immersion and achieve advanced English proficiency, gaining a distinct advantage to compete for competitive jobs
