About Us

Mission Statement

XCL American Academy’s mission is to provide high quality international American educational experiences and opportunities to international students in Singapore. We endeavor to make the school accessible to all by focusing on what really matters to our students and parents.


XCL American Academy is Singapore’s newest American International School.

We value our students as individuals and strive to help them reach their full potential. Strong academic and pastoral care encourages students to build confidence, stretch their abilities, dare to dream, achieve their goals, and reach their ambitions.

Our aim is to create happy, successful, independent learners who thrive on new experiences and can pursue their goals with confidence. Whoever they are, or dream of becoming, the American Academy is there to inspire curiosity, intellectual growth, creativity, and passion.

Core Values

Global Citizenship

We Believe – In diversity, equality, building communities, and taking action.

To prepare our students to be responsible and active members of global and local communities, our school community respects and embraces cultural diversity and equality. We promote ethical responsibility and sustainability as a foundation for lifelong growth as a global citizen.

Pursuing Excellence

We Believe – That excellence is a journey where one great achievement is merely a stepping stone to the next.

As excellence is built on lifelong resilience, perseverance, and strength of character, we create an environment which empowers individual students to broaden their potential, continually pursuing strengths and overcoming challenges.

Growing by Learning

We Believe – Continuous learning is the fuel for continual growth.

In order to adapt to an ever-changing world, where flexibility, creativity, and mental agility are needed, our students engage in constant inquiry, leading to intellectual restlessness and eagerness to continuously learn.

Leading through Innovation

We Believe – The world needs more innovators.

Positively impacting society and overcoming local and global issues requires leadership and thinking which promote a sustainable future. We challenge students with problems which require bold thinking and imagining the impossible, thus leading to new ideas.

High quality teaching and learning

At XCL American Academy we believe in providing a high-quality teaching and learning environment that:

  • Is the foundation of all we do.
  • Provides students with authentic opportunities, and the related skills, to be inquirers and critical, creative thinkers in an open and inclusive environment. 
  • Differentiates experiences for learners as individuals 
  • Creates personalised pathways for learners in order for them to reach their full potential.
  • Exists within the relationships we build and the connections we make.
  • Equips students to be critical thinkers that appreciate diversity in an increasingly global world
  • Takes place in a secure, stimulating and engaging environment

Raising intercultural awareness

At XCL American Academy, we believe in raising intercultural awareness by letting students share and celebrate their unique sense of self and their cultural identities. This leads to a greater appreciation of diversity and prepares them for an increasingly global world.
