Discover XCL World Academy – The School of The Future in Singapore
XCL World Academy (XWA) offers a rigorous and balanced education for students aged 2 to 18, beginning with our Nursery programme and continuing through the full International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum of studies.The name we have selected for our school, XCL World Academy, holds profound significance. It embodies the core principles and aspirations of our organisation, focused on achieving excellence and fostering your child’s academic and personal growth.
We believe your child shouldn’t simply be a part of the future; instead, they should actively shape it. Guided by our motto, “Shaping Next Now,” we fully embrace the responsibility of empowering students to take charge of their future and carve out their unique paths in life.
At XCL World Academy, our primary goal is to create academic and personal pathways that help students gain a deeper understanding of themselves and equip them for an ever-changing globalised world. Through our world-class curriculum and with the guidance of highly experienced teachers, your child will embark on a self-directed journey to become a skilled and empathetic young individual.
Our vision revolves around inspiring students to “Aspire, Act and Grow” in a cyclical progression of lifelong learning to our commitment to diversity, well-being and academic excellence.
We embody our ambitious mission of “fostering an inclusive international community of happy learners who aspire to positively impact others” and aim to create an environment where students are not only academically successful but also experience genuine happiness in their educational journey. We believe that by nurturing a sense of belonging and promoting diversity, we can encourage our students to become empathetic global citizens who strive to improve the world.
What Makes Us a World-Class International School?
When it comes to delivering a world-class education, we excel in several key aspects:
- International School Excellence: XWA’s reputation for excellence is well-earned. Our dedicated faculty, innovative teaching methods and cutting-edge resources create an environment where students thrive academically and personally. With a future-minded approach to education, we take pride in setting up our students for success in a rapidly evolving world.

This rigorous curriculum empowers students with a well-rounded education that promotes critical thinking, intercultural understanding and a sense of responsibility. Our graduates are equipped to tackle the challenges of an interconnected world with confidence.

At XWA, our comprehensive Early Childhood Education (Nursery and Early Years) programmes nurture young minds, fostering a love for learning that lasts a lifetime. Through engaging activities and a nurturing environment, we lay the groundwork for a successful academic journey.
- Primary and Secondary Years: Our Primary Years Programme (Grades 1-5) lays a strong foundation with a holistic curriculum focusing on key subjects. Transitioning to the Secondary Years Programme (Grades 6-10), students at XWA enjoy a more specialised learning experience, delving into diverse subjects and honing both academic and life skills. This journey equips our students with a robust preparation for future endeavours.

With multiple pathways to success at XWA, we offer a choice between the prestigious IB Diploma and the High School Diploma, accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This personalised approach ensures that each student’s unique talents and goals are recognised and cultivated.
- Learning by Design: XWA highly values the significance of equipping students for the rapidly changing future. We emphasise progressive teaching approaches, particularly design thinking, to nurture essential abilities such as critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity. By integrating design thinking into our teaching practice, our students develop the capacity to analyse complex issues and approach challenges with a well-rounded perspective.
- Esports: Our Esports initiative goes beyond traditional education by embracing the interests of the digitally native generation and preparing them for potential careers in the thriving Esports industry. This initiative underscores our dedication to becoming Singapore’s School of The Future and providing students with innovative opportunities that align with the technological advancements and global trends of the 21st century.
