Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane - SHSS Graduate Handbook

Language Learning


By far the largest part of the Learning Support services provided to students is English language support. This helps students, frequently new students, to bring their language up to the level expected at their age level which meets the curriculum standards which are on a par North American schools.



We have a large, well-stocked library with over 4,000 books with a variety of fiction and non-fiction books at various reading levels. The school library collection manly contains titles in English but we also have a selection of French and Arabic titles and we are currently expanding our collection in these languages.

Atheletics, Clubs and Extra Curricular Activities

The Sports program is an integral part of the overall educational process at AUI. Through sports, students learn the value of hard work, discipline, team building, and sportsmanship. At ASI, we aim to provide an environment wherein students achieve in sports but lay also the foundation for success in life as well. ASI is a full member of the Maroc-American Schools Athletic Conference (MASAC). We have teams that compete in the conference and on a national level with other similar international schools in Volleyball, Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, and Basketball.

The facilities at Al Akhawayn University are used by the school consisting of an Olympic sized heated pool and a first-class indoor gymnasium facility for basketball, volleyball, handball, badminton, tennis and other activities.

Each trimester ASI makes a call from its teachers and members of the community to offer extra-curricular activities.  Extra-curricular activities range in offering based on adult availability after school hours.  Examples of after-school activity offerings include courses such as dance, soccer, swimming, music, educational technology games, Arduino Robotics, Speech and Debate, and Model United Nations to name a few.



Visual and Performing Arts


We have an active drama and arts program here at ASI and it is very important for use to offset the dominance of the science and calculative subjects in our contemporary world. There are frequent cultural evenings, plays and exhibitions which are performed at school.
