Advance Learning Academy aims to provide Cambodians access to top quality education enrichment programs

The engaging Singapore’s broad-based and holistic education approach, Advance Learning Academy (ALA) is the first and only purpose-built integrated education centre in Cambodia, officially opened on August 2014. Centrally located at Aeon Mall Phnom Penh, ALA fulfils the need for a place where children and adults can pursue education and learning interests.

ALA introduces Cambodian top-class facilities and equipment, qualified teachers and internationally-recognized education programs with differing fees for the different programs.

Nicole Phoon, Operations Manager of ALA said “our fee ranges from $8 per hours to $20 per hours depending on which program they chose.”

The centre, with a total gross area of 1,200 square metres, features a robotics lab, three dance studios, a Taekwondo dojang and eight well-appointed classrooms.

With over 400 students, ALA is continuously upgrading their facilities, expanding their space and bringing in unique new programmes to suit wider market segments. The recent opening of their new world-class dance studio covers an area of 100 square metres. “Mommy & Me” is a newly launched programme offering a platform for mothers and their babies to be involved together in a series of activities, advocating better communication between parents and their children from a very young age. With plans to expand to other locations, ALA seeks to reach out to more Cambodians.

“Education is the cornerstone to every society’s development, and through this, we prepare the next generation of leaders,” said Daniel Li, Group CEO.

“The Academy addresses the growing demand in Cambodia for a purpose-built destination focusing on extracurricular activities, after-school programmes and enrichment programmes. ALA offers high-quality, internationally-recognized programmes in multiple disciplines such as robotics, dance and fitness (Ballet, Zumba, Belly Dance, Yoga), languages (English, Mandarin, etc.), art and mathematics, catering to both children and adults.”
