school values
ability to learn
We believe that educators embody life-long learning. Their programmes enhance self-directed learning skills and equip students with the tools to keep learning long after the course ends.
understanding the context and critical thinking
We are certain that education reflects and informs the reality. Therefore, all our educational programmes develop the skills crucial to understand, analyze, and interpret the nuances of the contemporary world and the world of the future.
learner-centered approach
We begin the design of our courses with people in mind. We create organic, learner-centered educational environments and pass this value to our students.
creative thinking
In a world that already has everything but still demands new solutions, the skill to reinvent education is critical. We aim to instill the audacity to rethink the reality in all our students.
learning from the community
We strive to shape our students into the community of fellow-thinkers, the community of people who value one another's contribution to learning and who recognize the importance to maintain this value in their own lives.
