The New Affordable International School In Singapore

The New Affordable International School In Singapore

Many families all over the world aspire to and strive for an American education for their children. That’s because American schools are well known for providing high-quality education through a balanced, tried-and-tested curriculum. The US education system is informed by cutting-edge research, which helps develop students into critical thinkers with well-rounded social-emotional skills.

Generally speaking, American education combines facts, figures, and data with an open-ended, problem-solving-based curriculum that involves collaboration, trial-and-error methodologies and risk-taking. And it opens up students to unlimited opportunities, not only in the US but also globally.

Sending your child to an American school means they’ll learn the skills and confidence necessary to enter schools, colleges, and universities in the United States or anywhere else in the world.

Being one of the newest American international schools in Singapore, XCL American Academy (XAA) is more than just an academic gateway to America for students. The school offers a unique American curriculum and world-class facilities that will benefit any student’s academic and personal development, no matter the path they choose for university and beyond. Our purpose-designed campus is located in Singapore, one of the top educational destinations for students around the globe.


At XAA, we strive to inspire the next generation of pioneers and empower them to leave a positive mark on our ever-changing world.

By focusing on what really matters to students and parents, we provide a rigorous, high-quality, and affordable American education in Singapore based on the core American values of respect, honor, and courage.

Our curriculum is directly aligned with the AERO and US Common Core standards to ensure that our students are on track to achieve their academic goals. We also adopt internationally recognized curriculum programs such as Everyday Math, Discovery Science, and a balanced approach to literacy with materials from Scholastic.

We are incredibly proud to announce that XCL American Academy is the first American school outside of the USA recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.

Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence (BRSE) has been involved with the United States Department of Education for over 35 years and works with schools throughout the United States of America to set a standard of excellence for all schools striving for the highest level of achievement. The program is part of a larger US Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about school leadership and teaching practices. Using standards of excellence evidenced by student achievement measures and the characteristics known from research to exemplify school quality, the Department annually celebrates outstanding schools from states across the country.

We will begin as an "Aspiring School" and build our profile over the next two to three years before welcoming the US team for a certification visit to rate our school against nine core standards of excellence. Once we have reached that milestone, we will be fully recognized by the Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence. So far, only 17 schools in the United States have reached this stature, and we will be the first and only international school.

We invite all Young Pioneers to join us for our inaugural year of trailblazing, learning, innovation, and overall excellence in education.
