ABOUT ACCEL ACADEMIES OF CONGO

Accel Congo is a non-profit education organization located in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. 

Accel Congo's leadership includes American and Congolese educators, business people, artists and communicators. We seek connection with hard-working and inventive individuals who recognize the benefits of engaging with the global community and recognize that English language skills and other intellectual tools are critical to success in that community.

Accel Congo exists to assist these individuals to elevate their lives, families and communities through education, training, and creation of social capital that will form the foundation of the country's lasting development. 

We integrate the best international practices with the most positive aspects of Congolese culture and wisdom to create extraordinary educational opportunities for the students at our various academies, ranging from 3-year-old pre-schoolers to aspiring international college students to seasoned professionals learning English in order to expand their businesses or qualify for their next career advancement.

We operate the Congo American Language Institute (CALI) under a cooperative agreement with the US Embassy in Kinshasa.  CALI has been an English-language training public diplomacy program of the Embassy since 1962. 

 

Our American Language Institute (ALI) offers enhanced English training programs to K-12 school partners in Kinshasa.
