It is our privilege to welcome you to Paramount International Academy (P.I.A). PIA opened its doors in August 2015; building upon the success of our preschool Wiggles and Giggles which first opened its doors in 2012.  P.I.A has quickly risen to be nationally recognized as one of the diverse, unique and academically excelling schools in Lilongwe. Here at PIA, we follow the Cambridge syllabus.  We are a one form entry, family oriented school striving to continually build on our current strengths. We are proud of the successes of our school-the excellent relationships we have with families and friends within our community and of the governors, staff and children who work to make our school a happy place where we can learn together in friendship. 


At P.I.A, we believe that children thrive when their individual needs are being met in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. We encourage children to aim high and work together. We have a strong emphasis on student well being demonstrated through a

caring ethos.  At the heart of our school are indeed the children themselves. The pupils we bring up are a delight to work with and are a

credit to our school. Very few visitors fail to comment on their enthusiasm and love of learning.  We intend to start our secondary school so that children can stay with us through all their first 3 phases of education.

It’s a pleasure to welcome you and your child to PARAMOUNT INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY. Whether enrolling in our school for the first time or transferring from another school, we welcome you to our school and value your potential contribution to our school community.


We hope that this website will give you a flavour of our school ethos, and of some of the many activities and events that take place during the year.


We believe in establishing secure routines to ensure that children are safe, happy and engaged in a positive learning environment that will help them develop to their full potential; and to enable you, the parents, know how the school operates and how you can be involved.


We believe that a strong partnership between home and school promotes the best possible environment for student learning. An excellent education for your child is the common aim for us all: parents, the school staff and community.
