Our attitude towards education

We are experts in education and our projects are designed to offer an alternative to the obsolete Czech education system to families and students from the ages 12 to 18. We cooperate with the best American and Canadian high schools. We are sending more than 180 students to enroll in these schools in the school year 2018/2019. These schools have also been the major sources of inspiration when we were creating our own concept of education for our two schools in Prague.

Our core premise is that school should prepare students for a happy and successful life in the 21st century. It is to be anticipated that in the near future people who are competent in communication, presenting information in multiple languages, solving problems and working in teams will be of essential use. That also means people who are capable of critical thinking and who can come up with innovative and creative solutions.

All our students are considered to be unique individuals. Everyone has different interests, talents and dreams. Our goal is to identify and develop the strengths of every single one of them in order to assist them in fully developing their potentials. Our services are tailored to fit the needs of every particular student.
