We’ve been in Singapore for about eight years. Daniela started attending XCL American Academy (XAA) in August 2022, in its inaugural academic year. Mateo will be enrolled in August 2023.
We first learned about XAA through social media; then we visited a booth the school had set up at Great World City shopping mall. The team provided detailed information, which gave us a good impression of the school, and arranged for us to visit the campus. That gave us a chance to view the facilities and speak with some of the teachers. The admissions team offered us the opportunity to become part of the XAA founding families community so we decided to enrol Daniela.
XAA’s curriculum will enable a smooth transition to any other similar American curriculum school globally, in case we have to leave Singapore.
The teachers at XAA are highly experienced with a deep dedication to inspiring children; this is something that we highly value in our children’s education. During the Parent-Teacher Conferences, parents meet teachers in person with open two-way communication. This allows for strong relationships to be built, and enables us to discuss the child’s school life and academic progress as well as their success and happiness both inside and outside the classroom.
The school celebrates every single academic milestone and shares authentic American experiences with our children. The tradition of celebrating each child’s birthday and hosting a backyard barbecue for Thanksgiving have been heart-warming experiences.
The new campus is almost ready; the purpose-built facilities will open in August 2023 for the next academic year. These will feature a three-story library, a multi-purpose gym and specialist classrooms equipped with the latest educational technology.
The school has a strong focus on providing a well-rounded education that develops both academic and personal skills in students, which is essential for their future success. Based on our experience, we would highly recommend this school to other families.
