Haven of Peace Academy (HOPAC) is located in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Dar is the main entry port to East Africa. Foreigners living in Dar can expect to enjoy living near the beach, a warm climate, and a developing economy. Life in Dar moves slowly but with a big city feel. The neighborhood around HOPAC is growing rapidly, with many new buildings and roads being prioritized for completion in the early 2020’s. The HOPAC campus faces the Indian Ocean and is located on a hill just high enough to have a fantastic view over the top of houses to see the water and provide a nice ocean breeze regularly.


HOPAC welcomes students from over 30 countries each year to be part of a diverse community with an inviting feel and a high standard of education that is offered through the Cambridge curriculum. With 342 students in the 2020/21 school year our class size averages 25 in the K-8 levels. In senior school students get the benefit of more classmates to collaborate with and challenge them as they develop their academic skills.


At HOPAC we are looking for servant leaders. In Tanzania the culture is very inviting. HOPAC benefits from putting a high value on being a Christian School and being one of the top International Schools in the country. We welcome teachers who love students, love learning and see the opportunity to build relationship and develop character as part of the academic process. Our desire is for students to graduate with a strong Biblical worldview, so we expect teachers to come to HOPAC with their Biblical worldview already established.


HOPAC is dually accredited by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). In addition, we are a full member of the Association of International Schools Africa (AISA) where we benefit from the network of East Africa International Schools and the training offered through AISA.
