Our Dream Catchers Academy for Girls is an educational and performing arts academy for gifted underserved girls. Nigeria is known for its rich culture in the arts but is almost impossible to find a school where children from low-income communities can also pursue their passion for the arts while getting a formal education.

We value the benefits that the arts afford our students and the positive impact this can have on their more formal studies.  Dancing and acting improve their motor abilities and concentration.

We let our students understand the importance of our program and they also know that their formal education comes first. They are inspired to put their best in all, so they do not lag behind in any aspect. This is what sets Dream Catchers Academy apart.

Join us and learn how we have achieved this!
