Guiding Statements


Guiding Statements

The Guiding Statements provide a reference point for all decision-making at the College. The statements carefully connect our Mission and Educational Goal to the Learning Programme and the Wellbeing and Learning Principles that underpin it. Most importantly, they outline how the UWCSEA educational experience is designed so that students learn to live the UWC Mission.

A member of the UWC Movement, we have a passionate belief in the importance of education as a force for good in the world, and in the power of our mission, which is more relevant today than ever before. First developed by educationalist Kurt Hahn, our educational principles have since been expanded and refined by educators from across the globe, and are borne out by research. 

The diagram below, and the statement above it, outlines how our Guiding Statements join together in service of our students and, ultimately, our Mission.

Because UWCSEA is driven by its Mission, Values and Educational Goal, we create an environment that is underpinned by Wellbeing and Learning Principles, and provide a holistic Learning Programme through a K–12 concept-based curriculum which thoughtfully and deliberately develops the Skills, Qualities and Mission Competencies that enable students to live the Mission throughout their lives.

College Guiding Statements

UWCSEA ambition

UWCSEA will be a leader in international education. We will have a worldwide reputation for providing a challenging, holistic, values-based education with an emphasis upon academic achievement, service to others, environmental stewardship, teamwork and leadership.

UWCSEA definition of internationalism

In our context, we understand the pursuit of internationalism to mean the pursuit of our Guiding Statements. In practice, we implement our approach to internationalism via our holistic Learning Programme and through developing the Skills and Qualities of the UWCSEA Profile in our community members.
