The Anglo-Chinese School (ACS) has shaped the lives of hundreds of thousands of students since its founding in 1886. Today, it has grown to a family of six fine schools in Singapore with a total enrolment of more than 10,000, blessed with an enviable reputation for producing many of the nation’s outstanding leaders, entrepreneurs and sportsmen.
The ACS brand of education is based on the vision of our founder, Bishop William F. Oldham: to develop well-rounded students of strong moral character who excel academically, physically, socially and spiritually. The journey our students take from primary school to senior secondary is one of discovery, personal development, interaction and the pursuit of excellence. At every stage, we prepare them for the many challenges that they will face when they step into society and the real world. It is a memorable journey that fosters camaraderie, encourages a remarkable sense of belonging amongst students, teachers, parents and alumni, and also one that cultivates the inimitable ACS spirit that has made ACS unique amongst schools.
ACS takes great pride in nurturing the leaders of tomorrow, and setting benchmarks for others to follow. As it continues to move forward in tandem with the times to meet the needs of the ever-changing modern world, one thing in its brand of education remains unchanged, and that is the sound Christian values and principles that are responsible for the matchless ACS spirit of excellence, service and loyalty.
ACS (International) caters for Singaporeans and overseas students who are attracted to an international curriculum in a Singaporean context, in particular, the “ACS brand of education”. The school embraces the traditions of ACS. Our sister schools are ACS (Independent), ACS (Junior), ACS (Primary), ACS (Barker Road), Anglo-Chinese Junior College, and ACS (Jakarta).
The establishment of ACS (International) is in line with the Government’s aim of making Singapore an educational centre of excellence to serve Singaporeans as well as students from the region.
ACS (International) is accredited by the University of Cambridge and the International Baccalaureate Organisation to offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and IB Diploma qualifications respectively.
Students follow a general programme in Years 1 and 2 in preparation for entry onto the IGCSE course in Years 3 and 4 followed by the IB Diploma in Years 5 and 6.
This international curriculum equips our students to well meet the challenges of tertiary education. A range of second languages are also offered as an integral part of the curriculum. Students wishing to apply to American universities have the additional option to prepare for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
The curriculum is delivered by a very strong and dedicated team of international academic staff with a wealth of teaching experience and proven track records in the education service. To them, teaching is a lifelong commitment. With a very good teacher-student ratio students can expect learning to be both enjoyable and meaningful at ACS (International).
THE PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
Choosing the right school is a most important responsibility and decision for families, just as nurturing, challenging and education our students to reach their full potential is the prime responsibility for our school. At ACS (International) we pride ourselves on developing well-rounded outstanding young men and women who excel academically, physically, socially and spiritually.
We are proud of the special character of ACS (International) which sets us apart – our dual Christian and ACS heritage, and our expansive, holistic international education programmes.
Our Christian principles in the Methodist tradition are values and beliefs that guide us everyday, help us to be better people, serve and help others, and be all that we were created to be. Our ACS heritage extends back over 125 years to 1886 when Bishop Oldham started the first ACS school. We have a proud history, a strong brand and an illustrious alumni network. Our holistic international education programmes based around the IGCSE and IB curricula enable our students to achieve highly in examinations, experience a wide range of service and curricular activities both in Singapore and overseas, and gain entry to top universities in Singapore and around the world.
The equal mix of both local Singaporean students with international students from Asia, around the Pacific and further abroad is quite unique in schools in Singapore. The fusion of different ethnic groups enriches the learning experience for our students, enhances the appreciation of cultural differences and enables students to make friends from different parts of the world.
ACS (International) is truly no ordinary school. We look forward to welcoming both students and parents to the ACS family to collaborate in a successful partnership between home and school.
