Aims & Ethos

XCL World Academy was selected to embody and preserve the unique identity of the school, shaped since its foundation, whilst introducing XCL Education as a partner for the future. XCL is a gramogram of the word excel, derived from the latin word ‘celsus’ which means to rise and surpass. The words ‘World Academy’, reflect the mission and values of the school, highlighting the diverse and multicultural constitution of the community, as well as the global perspective that we seek to embed in every child’s learning. It is fully aligned with XCL Education’s ethos of preparing our students for global roles in a changing world and the careers of tomorrow.

The color, ‘XCL red’, signifies boldness, vibrancy, and passion. The brandmark is a universal gesture of victory, happiness, and exhilaration. Shaped as a ‘W’ for ‘World Academy’.

Shaping Next Now

We believe that a good education should prepare students to shape tomorrow and not merely be part of it. XCL World Academy represents XCL Education’s commitment in Asia to educating students in this way.


Aspire | Act | Grow


To empower an inclusive international community of happy learners who aspire to positively impact others.

Through our mission, our students are tomorrow’s changemakers.
