XCL World Academy has officially launched! The former GEMS World Academy aims to become the premier international IB school in Singapore
XCL World Academy (pronounced ‘excel’) marks a significant milestone in the school’s history. Known for its tight knit community, rigorous curriculum offerings and excellent International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) results, the school has a diverse teacher representation from more than 20 nationalities, and a student representation from more than 60 countries.
So what can you expect from the newly rebranded school? Seasoned education executive and CEO of XCL Education, Brian Rogove said, “We are investing heavily in many areas with the aim of benefiting our students as we work towards the goal of establishing XCL World Academy as Singapore’s premier international school. The words ‘World Academy’ reflect the mission and values of the school, highlighting the diverse and multicultural constitution of the community, as well as the global perspective that we seek to embed in every child’s learning. It is fully aligned with XCL Education’s ethos of preparing our students for global roles in a changing world and the careers of tomorrow.”
As the flagship school of the XCL Education Group of schools, XCL World Academy will pioneer many enhancements and innovations aimed at giving its students a head-start in meaningful and successful careers – helping them shape what’s next for them and for the world, starting now.
Want to make sure your child starts thinking about their future career early?
XCL World Academy can help. This international school will offer a bespoke University and Careers Counselling Programme, to help students make informed decisions about the educational and career pathways best suited for them.
The programme will be offered to students from Grade 8, starting with career exploration, discovery sessions and guidance on high school pathways. We know how much emphasis there is on the holistic development of every child at XCL World Academy – to them, academic development and character development are equally important and the school strives to build qualities like confidence, resilience and leadership. EQ should be sought after as much as IQ, so they’ve created a buzzing environment through a myriad of opportunities in community service, extracurricular activities, technology, sports, arts, and innovation.
XCL World Academy helps students prepare for the future with personalised plans and guidance, the chance to hear from professionals and leaders from all industries and walks of life, access to an engaging mentor network, options for specialised pathways upon graduation and more. It’s all customised to fit with each child’s specific academic, personal and career aspirations. So by the time they’re in Grade 12, they know they’re all set to embark on their next journey!

Significant facility upgrades planned for the school include upgrades to classrooms and student spaces, new tennis courts, a running track, baseball, and cricket batting nets. These will be introduced over the next academic year.
