Southeast Asia’s leading education group, XCL Education announces the official brand launch of XCL World Academy (formerly known as GEMS World Academy) after acquisition of the international school in late 2020.
XCL World Academy (XCL is pronounced ‘excel’) marks a significant milestone in the school’s history. Known for its tight knit community, rigorous curriculum and course offerings, and excellent International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results, the school has a truly multicultural community, with teacher representation from more than 20 nationalities, and student representation from more than 60 countries.
The school also offers a personalised, well-rounded, and rigorous international education comprising all four International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes that stretch beyond traditional academic subjects to embrace the arts, music, drama, design, innovative technologies, and sport.
As the flagship school of the XCL Education group of schools, XCL World Academy has set their sights on becoming the premier IB school in Singapore. The school will initiate many enhancements and innovations aimed at giving its students a head-start in meaningful and successful careers – helping them shape what’s next for them and for the world, starting now. For example, XCL World Academy will offer university and career guidance starting from Grade 8.
Other new initiatives are being planned and rolled out. April saw the launch of XCL Dialogues, a series of wide-ranging conversations with acclaimed, and respected individuals who have made a mark in their chosen domains, whether it is in business, sports, politics, entertainment, journalism, or literature. The XCL Dialogues were designed to allow students, teachers, staff, and parents across the group to have the unique opportunity to hear, learn, and be inspired by some of the very best minds and achievers in the world.
Significant facility improvements planned for the school include upgrades to classrooms and student spaces, new tennis courts, outdoor basketball court, baseball, and cricket batting nets, and will be introduced over the next academic year.
There are also plans to build a dedicated and purpose-built new High School Block which will include a large and dedicated IB DP student common area and highly unique specialist areas, including a university and careers counselling centre, science labs, an e-sports arena, computer coding labs and next-generation technology-equipped classrooms to accommodate hybrid learning models. This will be in addition to the current state-of-the-art facilities at the school’s modern campus 20 min away from downtown Singapore.
