About us

Brief History

Jemibewon International Academy is a private co-education full boarding secondary school, founded by Gen. David M. Jemibewon (rtd).The academy is located on twelve hectares of land sitting adjacent to the kabba Ilorin expressway in Iyah – Gbede, kogi state.

          The academy was formally opened and dedicated on the 20th July, 2012 by the catholic bishop of lokoja diocese: Most Rev. Dr. Martin Olorunmolu.

          Mr. Peter s. Onaiyekan; a veteran teacher and administrator with bachelor of education in mathematics and Master Degree in educational education with over 30 years of experience laid the academic foundation for the school as the pioneer students on Sunday September 9, 2012. The population of the students at inception was nine (six boys and three girls).

          Within three years of existence, the academy produced a medallist of the 2015 International Olympiad Mathematics Competition; Promasidor Limited, maker of cowbell gave the school a prize for being ICT complaint in 2016.

          Furthermore, two of our students having completed ninth grade here moved to Miami central High school, Florida, USA to continue High school. These two students distinguished themselves academically and were placed in tenth grade and honour’s class despite their age falling below the class. The results of our students in External examinations BECE/NECO/WAEC is a testimony to the quality and dedication of members of staff. As seen, all our students recorded 100% credit pass in our first WAEC; our eleven students produced: ten-A1, fifty-two B’s, thirty-Cs and five –D’s

The fundamental purpose of Jemibewon International Academy is learning, not teaching. Here, you learn how to learn.
