A defining characteristic of the UWCSEA curriculum is the way we actively integrate our mission and values into every aspect of College programmes. While we combine challenging experiences with academic rigor and creative opportunities in the personal education of every student, underpinning this are the values of the College. At the core is our mission to educate individuals to take responsibility for shaping a better world.
The curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop all their intelligences - analytical, practical, creative and emotional. These then strengthen each other, leading to well-balanced, perceptive individuals who have the confidence to take action to improve the lives of others.
Experiences in sports, on expeditions, using technology, through service to others, in the art studio, and in musical and dramatic performances, are integrated with classroom learning. The ability to communicate in more than one language is a key goal and all students have the opportunity to study a second language.
A curriculum of this ambitious nature cannot be confined to the classroom, and we place equal importance on the worth of curricular and extra-curricular components.
