AKES runs the Aga Khan Lycée in Khorog, catering for students from pre-primary at Grade 0 (age six) to Grade 11. The Lycée follows the Tajik National State Curriculum, and the curriculum is offered in English, Tajik and Russian.

The Lycée also undertakes outreach to share knowledge beyond its own students. It offers learning support programmes to students at government schools, an annual summer camp, a youth leadership forum and professional development for teachers.

We have established three early childhood development (ECD) centres, one in Khorog Park, one at the Aga Khan Lycée and one in Ishkashim. They partner with government and community programmes, providing technical and training support to build teacher capacity and improve child outcomes.
