In lower secondary (years 7 and 8), the Academia curriculum is based on the Swiss curriculum Lehrplan 21 and the Cambridge International Curriculum. The British curriculum allows great scope for creativity while preparing students to enter the internationally recognised IGCSE programme in year 9.
Our students attend the following subjects in our lower secondary school: English, German, French, Geography, History, Mathematics, Science, Art, Music, Physical Education.
All academic subjects are taught in English. However, a considerable part of our teaching time is dedicated to German by layering our curriculum with project-based learning. This means that students not only attend German language lessons but also work on projects to reinforce learning in science and humanities, thus building a rich specialised vocabulary in German.
