The integrated network of Academies will offer students the opportunity to broaden the scope of their educational and social experience through exchanges with other Academies and allied schools in Europe and North America.
The international network of Academies will ultimately include an international exchange programme as part of its curriculum, providing students with the opportunity to study for an extended period in another of the network’s 18 (planned or currently under development) Academies in Africa, South and Central Asia, and the Middle East.
Each Academy will have residential facilities in a safe, secure campus setting. Accommodation will be provided not only for international students, but also for boarding students from within the country or region. Campus life is considered a vital part of the education programme. Many of the least tangible but most important elements of an education- the development of practical leadership skills, the capacity to make ethical judgments, the ability to navigate through complex cultural settings- are formed outside the classroom. Meal times and other informal gatherings offer opportunities for discussion, meetings, language tables and study groups. A residential campus, therefore, greatly extends and enriches international exchanges.
Through the implementation of the International Baccalaureate programme at all Academies, the common curriculum will allow students to study abroad without facing uncertainties regarding compatibility of course study or examinations. Whereas the medium of instruction will be English at all Academies, the study of a foreign language, required by all Academy students, will be greatly enhanced by immersion in that language. Likewise, appreciation and respect for other nationalities, cultures, and intellectual traditions will be significantly facilitated by direct contact with people in other countries.
International student exchanges between Academies in different countries, as well as with allied schools in Europe and North America, will offer students opportunities to broaden their world view and learn to be at ease in multicultural settings.
