Learn to be smart.

A QUINTESSENTIAL PHILOSOPHY.

LANGUAGE SOPHISTICATION

Imagine a constantly evolving centre for English and writing with a focus on higher-order language skills and sophisticated writing as a benchmark for excellence.

INTELLECTUAL RIGOUR

An intellectual and stimulating programme that builds a rock-solid foundation in English and helps your child learn – to love learning.

LIBERAL ARTS EXPOSURE

Intellectual, social and cultural capital that enables your child to transition seamlessly through advanced capitalist societies anywhere in the world.

PERSONAL BRANDING

Be an opinion leader and trendsetter – create and sustain a meticulously crafted self-image, from public speaking to personal optics. All increasingly relevant in a multi-pronged, intrinsically complex world.

We sort our students into Academic Ability and Achievement (AAA) levels, pitched perfectly to help them grow in confidence and get the right push.

THE ACADEMIA EXPERIENCE.

A trifecta of educational perspectives. The prestigious Singaporean system with a touch of the Ivy League and Oxbridge.
The very definition of academic achievement is in continuous flux as global forces continue to reshape the educational landscape and render old paradigms obsolete.

The name Academia reflects an awareness of how important it is to ensure a rigorous academic foundation in English, particularly in a world where communication skills, creativity and critical thinking are paramount. At the same time, learning a language need not be laborious, but can also be a labour of love. It's all the more important for a language that pays lifelong dividends among the global elite. We believe that today's students require deep skills that go beyond the rote memorisation and regurgitation of facts that characterised education in the last century. In a world where automation and technological innovation will make last-century skills obsolete, higher-order skills such as creative awareness, design thinking and personal branding also come into play. Academia represents the synthesis of perspectives gleaned from the institutions that set the global educational agenda. 

A DIVERSE, INCLUSIVE TEAM.

A collaborative and collegial community, drawing from a diversity of specialised backgrounds, experiences and perspectives to achieve a synthesis of knowledge.
