Our Understanding of Holistic Education

Academic Development: we provide diverse and dynamic academic curricula, guided by high standards, where all learners, young and adult, are actively engaged to reach their maximum potential. We are committed to developing the abilities of all our learners, young and adult, honoring their different learning styles, multiple intelligences and cultural backgrounds. Our curricula are project and research-based and integrate technology.
Cognitive Development: we provide a learning experience where learners can experiment with academic, personal and social problem-solving, and exercise rational and creative thinking, develop into critical thinkers, and acquire the knowledge and skills to become independent life-long learners. Our emphasis is on teaching learners to translate real-life solutions into concept models, obtain solutions, and then translate those back into the context of the real-life application. The on-going traditional and authentic assessments integrated in our curricula measure learners’ understanding and help us cater to their needs.

Personal and Social Development: We provide an educational experience where every learner is supported and guided to become a confident and responsible leader and decision-maker, and where every learner will develop a healthy social system based on respect and appreciation of others. This system includes acquiring the knowledge, attitudes and skills to lead an active, productive, and healthy lifestyle.
Aesthetic Development: We provide an educational experience where our learners will develop a personal appreciation for the different forms of art including music, fine arts and literature. Our learners will be motivated and encouraged to experiment with and develop their own artistic talents.
Moral Development: We will provide an educational experience where learners can develop into global citizens who are aware of, understand, accept and respect the differences in others. Our learners will develop into free and responsible individuals, who respect the freedom of others and promote fairness and equality.
