Georgia International Academy 

Kindergarten to Senior High School


Progressive, experience-based, interdisciplinary, and collaborative


Our program of instruction is anchored on three pillars – Academics, Arts and Athletics. Our students create to learn and learn to create. They create products and learn from what they have created through digital connectivity. Lessons are age-appropriate and essential. We ensure that our students are highly engaged in the process of learning. Learning by doing will help them discover for themselves their own gifts and capabilities to be able to improve them. The mastery of their own gifts will make them succeed at what they love to do.

As the school shifts to online education, we are committed to implement the Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCs) in the K-12 curriculum using the progressive approach to learning which is experienced-based, interdisciplinary and collaborative. The school’s curriculum is also enriched by its Singapore Math and Science program that follows the 5-Step Experiential Learning Method where concepts are taught through hands-on experimentation followed by Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) driven learning.
