The American Academy Larnaca
is not your ordinary school

The most rewarding education should do more than teach – it should facilitate a love for learning. At the heart of the school's success is the passionate teaching body that is committed to our students.

Academics
We believe in active, engaging learning that extends beyond the classroom.

From spending extra time after class to discuss concepts to organising out-of-school activities that will reinforce learning, our teachers are committed to making learning personal and meaningful for each individual student from the very first day. The school offers a wide range of courses which gives considerable freedom to students to create their own curriculum at GCSE and A-Level, based on what best suits their interests and satisfies their academic curiosity.

At the heart of our school are the key values that underpin and are reflected in all our activities and initiatives. These are:

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

We allow students to flourish academically, achieving their full potential and loving learning for its own sake.

BEHAVIOURS

We encourage respect, empathy, integrity, collaboration, tolerance, perseverance, humour and discernment amongst the students.

COMMUNITY

We provide a sense of each person belonging to the wider Academy family while enjoying his or her years in the school.

INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL PRACTICE

We provide inspiring and creative teaching through immersive learning and the integration of the latest technologies that enhance 21st century learning.

INDEPENDENT LEARNING

We nurture young people’s creative and inquiring minds to make them global citizens.

PASTORAL CARE

We sponsor individualised growth and self-esteem, while fostering positive relationships among teachers, parents and students in a safe environment, with equal opportunities for all.

COMMUNICATIONS

Our aim is to have a meaningful dialogue with all stakeholders.

CHRISTIAN KINDNESS

In respect of the historical foundation of the Academy, to see beyond the material world and through ‘growth and service’, our aim is to build responsible young people of conscience.
