  • Additional email addresses might be 21stcentury.pvt@adec.ac.ae (but emails sent to ADEC addresses are ignored) or glineprocalla@yahoo.com. Additional fax number possibly +971-2-4413078 (not confirmed).
  • Accredited by the Philippines Department of Education?

21st Century Private Academy locations
  • Location on Muroor Rd (New Airport Rd) between Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Pakistani Arab School and Al Wahda Secondary School (Al Qadisiya School), on the 6th of August School site (August Sixth School) (closed). GPS coordinates 24°26'35.66"N, 54°24'10.00"E (24.443238, 54.402778)?
  • Other location given as between KUSTAR and Al Zafranah Girls School, but that might be based on incorrect information (ADEC school directory 2011 had August 6th School location at that site). Unless 21st Century School relocated?
  • Location also given as on 7th St (Zayed The First St, Electra St), next to Al Muhairy Center in Al Manhal district (ACMG information) but that appears to be incorrect. Might be ACMG or UFE office?
Website and FB pages
  • Domain was www.21stcenturyeducation.com according to Polaris Education, but no website available there.
  • facebook.com/21CPA - FB page for school.
  • facebook.com/pages/21st-Century-Private-Academy/210438278985117 - FB auto-spam, very little useful information.
05 November 2013
  • Fax number updated to +971-2-4413078 (ADEC information). Previous information was +971-2-6310707.
  • Postal address PO Box 67986 Abu Dhabi is the same as that for the Middle East Private School (MEPS) in Baniyas, also a UFE school.
09 September 2013 review
  • Start date delayed to 22 September 2013 for KG1 and KG2 students according to a report in The National. Student numbers up to 1,600 or 1,800 in September 2013 according to the same report? Other sources say 1,000 or 1,200. Number of teachers not supplied but is probably more than 30 (previous information), and the report mentioned 60 teachers (unclear if that was the total number).
  • Contact information updated - PO Box 67986 Abu Dhabi UAE, tel +971-2-4413077, fax +971-2-6310707, email address 21cpa@acmginternational.com.
  • Principal's name is Ms Elizabeth M Comia (Lizabeth Comia). Was previously at United International Philippine School in Dubai? Date of change not supplied.
  • School ownership or management changed from Universal Future Education (UFE) to American Companies Management Group (ACMG). Or UFE takes care of educational management and ACMG takes care of financial management.
17 August 2011 review
13 September 2010 review
  • The 21st Century Private Academy or Private School in Abu Dhabi is apparently the new name for the new Abu Dhabi Philippine Academy (see that page for information prior to September 2010) according to a Khaleej Times report.
  • Opening date of the new school has been delayed to Sunday 19 September 2010.
  • No website URL found or supplied, fees information not supplied either.
  • Contact details not supplied, try calling the owners, Universal Future Education (UFE) on telephone +971-2-6338555 (and ask them to send us the correct contact information). Might also be called the UFE Private Academy or UFE Private School.

General comments - might not apply to 21st Century Academy Abu Dhabi
  • Many popular schools are full for 2015-2016. New schools in Abu Dhabi might have places.
  • Allow extra for books, extra-curricular activities, uniforms, trips, etc if not included in school fees.
