Message from the Head of School
Welcome to Bingham Academy, Ethiopia!
Named after the founder of SIM, Rowland Bingham, Bingham Academy has been serving the mission and international community of Ethiopia since the late 1940s. From the school that began as a one teacher 14 student school, Bingham Academy has grown to have a student body of over 320 students and an international staff.
Bingham Academy is located in the outer suburbs of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Addis Ababa is a dynamic and rapidly growing city, and is the heart of not only Ethiopia but arguably Africa itself. Addis Ababa hosts the headquarters of the African Union (AU), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), several regional headquarters for other agencies of the United Nations, over 80 embassies, and numerous non-governmental organizations and international corporations.
In this important and strategic African city, Bingham Academy is located on a beautiful leafy campus, with excellent sporting and academic facilities. Our teaching staff come from over 8 different nationalities and are committed to working as a team to ensure all our students receive a quality Christian education. We strive to provide an education that fosters the students' spiritual, academic and physical development in a caring environment that emphasizes the importance of service. We seek to equip each student with the necessary skills to succeed and thrive in an ever changing world and impact the world for Gods glory. Bingham Academy offers an exciting opportunity to be involved in a key ministry in Ethiopia and whose impact can reach much further.
