International Academy



The Boarding Programme offers students the unique experience of interdisciplinary learning through living and studying within a community. Designed to complement the formal school curriculum, the educational support programmes, social and sporting activities offered through the boarding curriculum help our boarders acquire life skills and develop self-discipline and independence. It is also an opportunity for students to form rich and lasting relationships with friends from different countries and cultures, and immeasurably enrich their school experience beyond academic studies.
