What is unique about us

We provide more than just an education. Academia International School has had campuses in Basel and Zurich for over 10 years. Although every school has its own distinctive character, what makes us stand out is that we support our students in a holistic way. We help them reach their potential and excel through innovative teaching and learning methods and an attractive extracurricular programme. The effectiveness of our approach is not just confirmed by the excellent exam results our students achieve, but also by all of our former students, who have gone on to successfully study at renowned universities after their time with us.

We prepare our students for life in a global world. Students studying at Academia International School are able to gain two internationally recognised qualifications. The first of these is the IGCSE, which is gained over a two-year study period and is the world’s most popular international qualification for this age group. This is followed by the International A Levels, which are very highly valued by universities and higher education institutions throughout the world. On completion of their time with us, we provide each student with personalised advice concerning the next stage of their education, either in Switzerland or abroad.

Our teaching programme fosters growth. Our curriculum allows students to choose from a wide range of subjects and hence build on their strengths. Academia’s personal student advice service will furthermore ensure that these choices are made with great care and a view to future university and higher education degree programmes. The close support offered to our students is rounded off with regular goals setting and personal study coaching sessions.

The perfect setting for fostering excellence. Our approach is to build on our students’ individual strengths and to support them in achieving their personal best. Our classes are small and comprise between 8 and 15 students. The WIN4 campus is home to a wide range of sport facilities, which is the perfect setting for a healthy study-life balance. Our attractive range of elective subjects furthermore supports our school’s holistic approach to education.
