Our unique concept gives the students the freedom choose courses they want to study at the level that best fits their needs and competencies. The classes are not necessarily divided according to grade level, but rather academic ability. This allows for an academic atmosphere where the differences in ability level between students are not so large, ultimately allowing our teachers to approach teaching more individually, and therefore, more effectively.
Thanks to the American and Canadian curricula which, contrary to the British system, do not use any standardized and centralized tests, we are able to apply school-wide thematic weeks each trimester. The inspiration for this comes from the Finnish school system, well-known as one of the best in the world, which focuses on project-based and thematic learning.
Upon graduation from American Academy, our students receive a High School Diploma, equivalent of the czech “maturita”, which is widely accepted at universities around the world.
Preparation for university study anywhere in the world
Much like the International Baccalaureate Diploma or British high school diploma, our students must get their diploma validated if they want to apply for a Czech university. It is a process which we are familiar with and we are happy to help the students go through it. American Academy also offers Advanced Placement courses, which are equivalent to university courses in the American and Canadian systems. Students take exams in these subjects, which are comparable to the IB exams and accepted by universities around the world.
