About Ras Al Khaimah Academy

About Ras Al Khaimah Academy

RAK Academy is an independent, co-educational international family of schools, situated in beautiful Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), the northernmost emirate of the UAE, about one hour's drive from Dubai International Airport.  Founded in 1975, it was the first international school in the northern region.  Along with the Secondary School there are four Primary schools: three British Curriculum schools, and an International Baccalaureate  PYP school. There are approximately 3500 students across the academy, with 800+ in Secondary.  

The RAK Academy Family of Schools is fully accredited with the International Baccalaureate (IBO), Council of International Schools (CIS), British Schools Overseas (BSO) and a member of British Schools of the Middle East (BSME). It is also inspected by the UAE Ministry of Education. 

RAK Academy has a core ethos of accommodating mixed, comprehensive entry, with students from over 63 countries and a host UAE population of 55%. International Secondary Khuzam (ISK) offers a wide range of IGCSE's and a  post-16 programme, with a choice of AS/A Level or the IB Diploma through Grades 11 and 12.

The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is located within an easy drive of Dubai but is a quieter and relatively cheaper place to live. It is well-suited for families and the more adventurous alike, with a wealth of outdoor and leisure activities. Having a cooler climate and a mountainous landscape to the north, and white beaches of the Gulf coast to the west, RAK attracts a large tourist population. Consequently shopping, eating out and leisure are well-catered for; a wonderful and liberal part of UAE with an amazing cultural and geographical past. It is referred to as the “Pearl of the Emirates”.

The Academy schools offer an attractive employment package which includes a good tax free salary, including an allowance for accommodation, annual travel amount, family medical insurance, regular CPD and end-of-service gratuity.

Further information about our school can be found on our website www.rakacademy.org 

We hope to welcome you to one of our schools in the near future!
