Academic Director’s Note
It is no secret that the 21st century demands a high level of skill sets; the 6 Cs, namely Critical thinking, Creativity, Communication and Collaboration and of late Computer skills and Curiosity which have been added. While CS Academy looks at all of this as part of our pedagogy, the International Stream has the unique advantage of intense backing from a Board of education like the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), which is based in the UK.
As an assessment providing organization, CAIE has enhanced its position as a world renowned education system that is unparalleled. There is something suitable for every student whatever their level, their flair or their ambition. With such a flexible and adaptable system, CS Academy has proudly associated with them for the past 5 years. We offer all their programmes starting from the Cambridge International Primary Programme to the Gold standard `A’ Levels. Students who pass out of this system are well prepared for University. CS students get their placements all over the world from the Orient to the Occident. Our students are placed with scholarships and in prestigious colleges including the University of Chicago, UCL (UK), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), Yale-NUS (Singapore) and University of Melbourne to name a few. What is even more heartening is that they are more than ready to face the challenges at these top universities.
The natural progression from the primary to pre-university, gets them ready to make well informed choices of subjects and career, to logically communicate their thoughts and work with teams to accomplish their goals. One of the unique features of all these programmes is tackling issues that have global significance and they can be viewed with the prism of local impact. The subject `Global Perspectives’ provides a complete global overview that cuts through the boundaries of different disciplines and gives that extra `edge’ to the students who pass out of this system.
Another noteworthy point is that we are a Cambridge accredited teacher training centre, providing Cambridge programmes to aspiring teachers. This enables us to attract a host of competent teachers from across the country. Our student’s achievements are globally benchmarked as they leave the portals of the school, ready to be good citizens and leaders.
