Our K–12 academic curriculum is shaped by our UWC Mission. Through our academic programme, students develop life-long intellectual habits and passions. Learning goals in languages, mathematics, sciences, the Arts, humanities, technology and physical education build logically through each grade, preparing students for the next academic challenge and for life beyond school.

Our curriculum is concept-based which means it is centred around big ideas and concepts that transfer across time, place and situation. This transfer is critical to students being able to apply their learning in today's world and prepares them for an unknown future. This conceptual approach to our curriculum also supports students who are joining us from different countries, educational systems and backgrounds. 

The UWCSEA Academic Curriculum is mission-aligned and aims to develop student understanding of concepts necessary to build Peace and a Sustainable Future. These understandings are derived from UNESCO’s Education for Sustainable Development Goals and along with the skills and qualities of our UWCSEA Learner Profile,  are reinforced through the other four elements of our learning programme.
