Instructional Practice

Instructional objectives are clearly defined in all subject areas, with high academic expectations that are flexible enough to both support and challenge each learner. Homework is an important part of the educational process as a means of reinforcing and reviewing the daily classroom lessons. Instruction in all areas encourages students to grow as creative thinkers, critical thinkers and effective communicators. Technology, with internet access in classrooms and libraries, is integrated throughout our program.

Academically, The World Academy mission is to prepare our students to meet the challenges of a top tier university education, and lifelong learning, an appreciation for cultural diversity, with the creative problem-solving skills necessary to be successful in their future endeavors.

In addition to a strong academic curriculum, our daily program emphasizes on the four core values of TWA i.e. World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership Skills, and Forward Thinking. The World Academy strives to instill in all students a positive attitude toward Global Citizenship.

Teaching Methodologies

All TWA classrooms have learning principles based on the four core values of World Citizenship, Universal Values, Leadership Skills and Forward Thinking.

The World Academy teaching methods bring a new world of education alive in the classroom and around campus on a daily basis.

Unique Educational Approach

Our approach is guided by respect for children’s individual differences, by recognizing their inherent capacity for growth, and by a commitment to plan activities and environments, which shape learning and provide opportunities for student success.

We provide a wide range of learning opportunities for our students and encourage them to be active participants in their educational plan.

Technology is not simply taught as a “stand alone” class; rather every effort is made to incorporate technology as an information gathering tool and communication conduit into the specific subject area.

Students have the opportunity to excel as individuals and work as members of a team. In their studies and daily lives, our students are encouraged to explore their interests and strengths and to develop their own distinct, individual personalities.

We challenge our students and inspire them to expand their way of thinking. As our students begin to truly believe in themselves and their abilities, they develop the skills to succeed in school and life.
