XAA's vision is to create a school that could inspire the next generation of global pioneers by instilling in children the confidence to be authentic, have the courage to dream, push boundaries, and challenge themselves within a proven American education framework that is embedded with American values and character development.

XAA has carefully selected only the very best curriculum programs that have been tried and tested in the United States and worldwide. In addition to closely following the rigorous AERO Curriculum guidelines and the Common Core standards issued by the United States Department of Education.

At XAA, hands-on, real-world learning is an essential part of our curriculum. Starting in elementary school, our students participate in the PioneerTown programme – a unique, experiential, large-scale simulation of a town, where young learners can engage in role-playing and take on different responsibilities in a self-contained economy and learning different essential concepts such as economics, business, negotiation, innovation, leadership, sales, commerce and many others.
