WE ARE AMERICAN ACADEMY

We believe that anyone has the power to change the world. Our philosophy is that in order to achieve that, one should first receive a high-quality education that develops healthy confidence in one’s individuality as well as the ability to master complex thinking processes. We put an emphasis on each particular area of education by employing modern methods, project-based learning and American know-how.

ABOUT US

 

American Academy - predstavlja povezanost američkih međunarodnih škola kojima upravlja srednjoeuropska obrazovna grupa - JK Education, s kampusima u Češkoj, Slovačkoj i Hrvatskoj.
 
JK Education također vodi “Pražské Humanitní Gymnázium” koja je jedna od vodećih čeških privatnih pripremnih škola u Pragu, mreža obrazovnih agencija i obrazovnih konferencija u Srednjoj Europi usmjerena na savjetodavnu pomoć u međunarodnim mogućnostima studija u internatima i sveučilištima širom svijeta.
 
JK Education osnovana je 2012. godine i od tada je postala jedna od najistaknutijih obrazovnih grupa u Srednjoj Europi.

PROGRESSIVE AMERICAN EDUCATION

American Academy mreža osnovana je kao alternativa trenutnim međunarodnim školama u Pragu, Brnu, Bratislavi i Zagrebu. Većina ovih međunarodnih škola temelji se na britanskom nastavnom programu ili programu međunarodne mature. Kurikulum American Academy temelji se na američkom sustavu učenjaka, koji studentima omogućuje odabir predmeta koje žele proučavati i specijalizaciju za područja na koja se žele usredotočiti kasnije u životu. Fokusira se na razvoj kompetencija, neovisnosti, kao i kreativnosti kroz tematsko i projektno učenje.


Zahvaljujući svom jedinstvenom konceptu, American Academy privlači brojne kompetentne i nadarene studente i nastavnike iz Češke, Slovačke, Hrvatske i širom svijeta.

ONDŘEJ KANIA

CEO of JK Education

Our goal is to build a network of high quality international schools which would be the alternative to the British international schools. We are creating the schools we would love to study ourselves. Who doesn’t dream about a school where one can choose what they want to study? Which parent doesn’t want their children to be excited about going to school? The goal of American Academy is to help every student to recognize and develop their potential in the things they like and on which they want to focus on at the university or in professional life.

Ondřej Lepka

Director of the School Network Ondrej Lepka was a CEO of a Education group providing education from kindergarten to 8-year high school. Together with his team he has gone through the whole process of International Baccalaureate accreditation. 
Ondrej believes that learning is a lifelong process. He believes that it is important to know that making a mistake is not bad. According to him, a well-established school creates a sort of a golden circle - a satisfied student, the teacher and the parent. To achieve that, two-way effective communication is essential. 
He would like to apply all the skills he gained in HR (Human resources), use his experience with education and knowledge of the Czech scholar legislation. His goal is to establish well-functioning education system. 
In his free time, he likes to travel and meet with his friends.  ‎
