Institutional Profile

Mission statement

The CDM Academy International was conceptualized by a strong inspiration, vision, and orientation that led to the establishment of a model institute that seeks to advance the cause and liberties of learning, teaching and practising the doctrines of moral discipline, patriotism, and service obligation to nation building.

This model is designed by the realities and dynamics of western education, through a multi-disciplinary learning approach. It has a strong foundation in moral philosophy and righteousness, with the determination to develop and train tomorrow leaders with the fear of God.

This vision is consistent with international practice and the charter of the millennium development goals (MDG) which articulates the primacy of revolutionary ideas. Thus, we are motivated to evolve a sustainable culture of academic excellence which will passionately be determined by innovative learning, teaching, research and experimentation in all fields of comprehensive study.

In the process, we undertake to prepare valuable service instruments for nation building in varying categories, identified by a common discipline, loyalty and the consciousness to preserve the dignity of labour, through service to God and mankind.

Therefore, we endeavour to make disciples for Jesus Christ among many youth through the impartation of sound Christian doctrine and excellent secular education; building in them a genuine and enduring faith that will make our youth to live in a way that pleases God, as we have taught them.


CDM is an abbreviation for Christian Discipleship Mission, which translates into a citadel that teaches the fundamental values and doctrines of faith, righteousness, and godliness. Against this background, the Mission has established a model college   to foster the teaching and learning of modern civilization, strongly rooted in the culture of secular knowledge and morality. The college started operation on 6th October, 2008 at its permanent site and has been constantly expanding its horizon in all infrastructural and academic frontiers.

Therefore, CDM Academy International is a specialized model college built to serve the educational needs of contemporary societies. It is in response to the emerging and compelling challenges that are poised by the apparent drift in the educational standards of the nation. This initiative is our modest effort to reposition the quest for modern civilization and to eliminate the apparent threat to systemic structural collapse.

For this reason, we have recruited the best available skilled manpower who are virtually committed and dedicated to actualize this noble dream. Our goal is to consciously drive the next generation to the destiny of domestic and international greatness.

Finally, CDM is quietly transforming the educational sector with the drive to synergise our institutional framework with other similar colleges for exchange of ideas and manpower. For this reason, we undertake periodic excursion visits, locally and internationally, in order to expose our students to available opportunities of learning. Such experiences are already thriving a culture of positive excellence and competition as a guiding philosophy of the college.

Ultimately, the priority for this tutelage remains the need to provide a breeding ground for our university system, consistent with appropriate standards and quality. It is our prayer that our students will make the best use of this holistic investment with excellent turnover.
