SCIA's holistic education sets the pace in Cambodia

Singapore (Cambodia) International Academy (SCIA) is the first international school that offers a blend of Singapore and Cambridge curriculum in Cambodia. SCIA is situated within One Park Condominium, Phnom Penh City Center and will accept its first cohort of students in mid-August. SCIA is a member of Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) Group, the leading provider of a diverse range of education pathways and professional training in Singapore.

SCIA provides students with a holistic education, infused with 21st Century competencies, which goes beyond classroom learning and grades. This is supported by three signature programmes: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics), Leadership, and Entrepreneurship. The academy also recognises the value of quality educators. “We have a committed team of school leaders who possess more than 15 to 20 years of teaching and management experiences in Singapore government schools and international schools in the region. Our school leaders, assisted by certified and competent educators, talent-scouted from all over the world including Singapore, will ensure the authenticity in the standard of international education,” Mr Anselm Chu, Managing Director & School Director adds.

SCIA offers a trilingual education – English, Chinese and Khmer. The academy emphasises the importance of embracing the Cambodian culture through learning Khmer. As China continues to play a key role in international economics with the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, Chinese language will be increasingly used in business communications and is thus important in preparing students to be future-ready.

“Our students are placed at the core of the academy’s curriculum and pedagogy. The character development of the child is paramount to our role as an educational institution. Together with our parents and educators, SCIA aims to nurture our future leaders to lead with their heads, hands and hearts, never ceasing to pursue endless possibilities in life,” Mr Chu concludes.
