A World Class Education for a Changing World, where our curriculum combines academic rigor with a global outlook
Through development in three key areas, our curriculum builds informed, intelligent changemakers who are empowered to enact real and lasting change.
We believe that education should connect you to the world around you, providing context and insight into today’s most pressing issues. Drawing from the 21st Century’s most innovative and effective educational models, our curriculum combines high academic standards with interdisciplinary, project-based learning—so your environment informs your studies and your studies give meaning to your environment.
Our curriculum focuses on mastering skills and concepts instead of regurgitating facts. We divide level of mastery into three stages: Apprentice (can remember and understand), Specialist (can analyze, evaluate, and apply), and Master (can create new ideas and teach others). At St. Dzeusif School, you’ll gain a level of Specialist or higher in academic disciplines including mathematics, science, English, social science, world language, art, physical education and health, and careers, while attaining mastership of the subjects that intrigue you most.
We have based our curriculum on the most effective educational models from around the world and we believe in hiring the best teachers, giving them the freedom to design the most effective learning modules, and trusting students to guide their own education. The result? Students who don’t just excel academically, but enter the world with passion, curiosity, and a genuine love of learning.
Through a robust advisory program and continuous, constructive academic feedback, you’ll gain the skills and knowledge to become a self-guided learner and remain engaged in learning throughout your life.
Developing as an individual is important, but it’s just as important to develop a sense of belonging to something greater than yourself. No matter how you choose to create change, we’re devoted to helping you find the causes you’re passionate about and figure out how to make a real and lasting difference
Our Academic Calendar
Eight weeks online. One week onsite. Four weeks off. All year long. Our unique academic calendar fully immerses you in studies and an international study trip to a different country every year. Our holiday season offers students to take advantage of the best times to explore and also offers more time off to process your experiences, pursue internships or student-designed projects, or simply relax with friends and family back home.
Each term begins with one week of online preparation that can be done from home (or anywhere!). During this week you’ll select your project-based learning module, finalize your areas for a student-designed project, begin research assignments, and ramp up cultural and language skills.
