XCL World Academy

A Future-Oriented International School in Singapore

Welcome to XCL World Academy (XWA), the School of the Future. Through our world-class curriculum and progressive approach, we empower a community of happy learners who aspire to positively impact others.

At XWA, we encourage our students to Aspire, Act and Grow (our School’s Vision) — helping them realise their full potential and flourish into well-rounded world citizens.

As parents and educators, we have a responsibility to prepare our children for an uncertain tomorrow. More than just teaching facts and figures, we mentor our students to find their own voice, to lead, learn and innovate — preparing them for the ever-changing future ahead.

Tight-knit Community

Our educators know every child and family. Families, teachers and students are the foundation of our passionate and engaged community.

Pastoral Care Programmes

We offer pastoral care programmes to promote students’ academic, social and emotional development. Personal counselling and learning support are available across all levels.
