The United Nations estimates the current Nigeria population of 200 million to peak at 400 million in 2050, but the number of out-of-school children in the country keeps growing everyday. Governments don’t have enough resources to maintain current schools – not to talk about building more. To take Nigeria from a developing country to a developed country, the country needs private school founders and investors like you.
However, because Nigeria ranks low on the Ease of Doing Business Global Index, starting and running a school in the country can be challenging. This is the reason we designed this course to serve as a blueprint for success for current and aspiring school owners/investors.
The inspiration for the course’s materials was drawn from the over 30 years’ systematic management of Greensprings School, one of the most successful and profitable schools in Nigeria. We believe that no matter the scale of the your school -- small, medium, or large -- you can replicate the lessons and learnings from this course and drive your school to prosperity in your own unique way.
Greensprings School started with just 3 students in 1985 at Anthony Village in Lagos, but today, it is one of the most sought-after schools in Nigeria, with over 2000 students across its three campuses. The school’s alumni network is made up of successful entrepreneurs and captains of industries, who are now enrolling their children in the school so that their children can also enjoy the kind of quality education they enjoyed.
This course aims to show you the secret recipe that made Greensprings grow exponentially and keep pulling a high number of new enrollments per session. You will learn the essential things you need to know before starting a school, as well as the process of a school’s operation. The course covers everything you need to know about running a profitable school in Nigeria.
