We offer an exclusive blend of national and international curricula to meet the diverse needs of our student body. The Bilingual program adopts both the Khmer National Curriculum and the Cambridge curriculum. The International program adopts the CAIE – Cambridge curriculum, leading our students seamlessly from Primary through Secondary and Pre-University years. The students from the International program benefit from recognised programs such as Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary (IGCSE), and Cambridge Advanced Levels (AS/A Levels).

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is a two-year program designed for 14 to 16-year-old students. IGCSEs are established qualifications that keep up with educational trends and developments and are ideal preparation for higher-level courses such as AS and A-Levels. Students will attend this program in Grades 9-10 at our school. Upon completion of the two-year course, our students have the option of sitting IGCSE exams that will be held in May/June or November. IGCSE courses are renowned for developing essential educational skills, knowledge, and understanding.

As part of our curriculum, we incorporate students’ experiences, cultures, and perspectives; specifically, we focus on Cambodian culture and its contribution to the heritage of civilization, and internationalism with a primary emphasis on creating open-minded pupils. We strive to provide our students with goals like international perspectives, self-confidence, and conscientiousness to enable them to function as leaders and team members in societies around the world. We inspire our students to chase their dreams and get admitted to the best universities in the world. The alumni network has been our pride, and we continue to build strong bonds between alumni, students, and parents.

General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (A-Level) is the internationally recognized ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge qualifications. It is highly sought after by universities within the European Union and worldwide. A-Level courses are highly specialized, and students typically take three subjects over two years. Course content is divided into two categories: AS syllabus content (which is expected to be covered during the first half of the course) and A2 syllabus content (which is expected to be covered during the second half of the course).

Cambridge Lower Secondary is typically for learners aged 11 to 14 years. Students cover Maths, Science, Arts, Languages and Social Studies subjects in both curricula. As a programme developed with consistent standards that are externally benchmarked across tens of thousands of students, it enables reliable structured reporting to parents about the performance of their children, which has validity beyond the school. The programme also enables the school to ensure that students are properly prepared for the demands of the IGCSE courses in these subjects.
