The Academy, which is registered in the Republic of Suriname and recognized by the Suriname Ministry of Education, was started in 1998 by a group of academics in Suriname who saw the urgent need for an institution of learning to make a positive difference in the education of children within the wider context of eroded scholastic standards. From the inception, there has been a strong emphasis on academic excellence – and the directors of the fledgling school chose to enshrine this idea not only in the school’s motto, but also in the method of teaching – small classes where students are guaranteed individual attention in a highly interactive academic environment to ensure quality, good student retention, and an insistence on good performance on internationally-accepted, external, American examinations.
English is the language of instruction through all levels. This choice was made to provide wider opportunities to matriculating scholars, who, in point of fact, reside in a global village where English is acknowledged as lingua franca amidst a rich, linguistic, cultural and ethnic diversity.
