Pioneer Town

XCL American Academy Pioneer Town

Exploration, innovation, enterprise, challenge-seeking, civic responsibility and problem-solving: these are key traits of the Pioneer.

PioneerTown is a conceptual environment within the physical premises and activities of the school designed to encourage the blossoming of these traits.

Starting in elementary school, XCL American Academy students start participating in PioneerTown, where they are encouraged to explore, innovate, and seek new challenges. With the support of best-in-class partners, students interested in entrepreneurship will be mentored along the process.

At the end of their PioneerTown project, students participate in a large-scale open-ended simulation of a town, where they can engage in role-playing and take on different responsibilities in a self-contained economy, learning important concepts such as economics, negotiation, innovation, leadership, sales, commerce, and many others.

The entrepreneurship program is a hallmark of PioneerTown and is unique to our school. Students from different grade levels will work in teams on different entrepreneurial projects over the course of the school year (which may include projects with actual Singaporean startup companies for middle school students).

After performing market research, conducting customer interviews, working as a team to devise a business plan, and listening to business mentors, students will present their solutions directly to an invited expert panel of judges (simulating a real-world pitch session).
