Warning (06 September 2014)

There are a number of reports of teachers being offered a job at the Pan American Academy in Abu Dhabi (see that page for more details), with requests for the applicant to pay visa processing fees via Western Union to City Life Travels, a travel agent in Dubai.

Do not do this. It is usually a sign of a scam, and even if it isn't, employers in the UAE are legally required to pay all visa and related costs for their employees.

Not to be confused with the Pan American Academy Charter School (website in Philadelphia, USA, which is unrelated to PAA in the UAE or Canada.

14 October 2009 review

Pan American Academy Limited (PAA) is a British Columbia, Canada, based school operator with schools in China. PAA plans to open a school in Dubai in association with the American International School in Dubai, and maybe Abu Dhabi. The schools would be BC Offshore Schools, certified by the BC Ministry of Education if approved.

12 October 2009 Vancouver Sun report
PAA visit to the UAE, October 2008

The following report on the PAA website (no longer available - 14 October 2009) details a visit to their new school in the UAE at the American International School of Dubai (which is not the same as, nor related to, the American School of Dubai).

Dr. Emery Dosdall, Deputy Minister and Mr. Peter Owen, Assistant Deputy Minister, from the British Columbia's Ministry of Education and Skills, recently visited our new school in Dubai and met with government officials in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, UAE.

On October, 12th 2008, Dr. Dosdall and Mr. Owen toured our new school (Pan American Academy at American International School, Dubai) with Mr. Chris Pilgrim, Senior Director of Business Development, PAA and with Mr. Othman Abdel Bari, Principal and Director of American International School. Both Dr. Dosdall and Mr. Owen were very pleased with the school and had opportunity to speak with several teachers and students while touring the school. Pan American Academy at American International School (PAA at AIS) will begin its inaugural year in August 2009 starting with grades 1 to 3 and grades 9 and 10.

After touring the school, Dr. Dosdall and Mr. Owen held a meeting with Dubai 's Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) to pave the way for the official signing of a cooperative education agreement between the Emirate of Dubai and the British Columbia Ministry of Education. Attending the meeting with Dr. Dosdal and Mr. Owen were Dr. Abdulla Al Karam, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Director General; Jameela Al Muhairi, Chief of Dubai Schools Inspection Bureau; Stephanie Price Whittle, Director of Strategic Partnerships of KHDA, and Mr. Chris Pilgrim, Mr. Mohamed Bamatraf, and Mister Juma Al Salami.

Dr. Dosdall and Mr. Owen also had opportunity to visit with Dr. Fouzia Mohammed Badri, Chief Executive of Educational Affairs, United Arab Emirates Ministry of Education in Abu Dhabi. The BC Ministry of Education will also sign a cooperative agreement with the UAE National Ministry of Education.
