XCL World Academy is a family-orientated international school in Singapore for students aged 2 to 18. At XCL World Academy, we equip children with the academic and lifelong learning skills to be agents of their own success – helping to prepare them for further education, future careers or navigating the opportunities and challenges they will encounter in their lives.

To prepare students for an increasingly global world, we prize diversity and are proud to host students from over 60 nationalities, with no one dominant culture or background. Our world-class teachers are trained to identify each student’s special strengths, so we can create personalised pathways that recognise each student’s unique strengths. All this makes XCL World Academy a truly international school that prepares students to stay a few steps ahead of the future.

Our school places an emphasis on the holistic development of every child. Academic development is as important as character development and we strive to build qualities such as confidence, resilience and leadership in every student. EQ is as much sought after as IQ. And we believe that some of life’s most important lessons can be learned outside textbooks. That’s why we create a vibrant environment through countless opportunities in technology, sports, arts, innovation, community service and extracurricular activities.
