Academia International School – Your Small School in Switzerland.
General
Academia International School follows the British International Curriculum (IGCSEs and A Levels). We are an international school, small by design, where your son or daughter will not get lost in the crowd. We are a multi-cultural, city centre school that aims to provide academic excellence in a cosy, caring environment.
Offerings
IGCSE and IAL, Matura or IB?
The IGCSEs are an internationally recognised international secondary school leaving qualification and equivalent to a US High School Diploma. With IGCSEs students already have internationally recognised academic currency after year 10. The level of academic rigour at A levels is so highly regarded that in some US universities students with good grades can directly enter the 2nd year of study.

We have opted for IGCSEs and A levels because of the flexibility and choice this curriculum provides. In years 11 and 12 our students can study 3 to 4 subjects they are passionate about and interested in. This means breadth and range in a student’s program is much more flexible and can be adjusted and adapted according to the individual student. For example, while some students will want to supplement an A level STEM focus (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) with a language or an elective such as Art; other students will benefit from the opportunity to focus on their three sciences having already completed a broad academic programme with their IGCSEs.

Our curriculum
Subject selection and duration of study
Six subjects in A Levels are generally required in order to be accepted at a university. International A Levels (IAL) offer you maximum flexibility and an opportunity to focus on your strengths.
A consultation interview will take place to discuss your goals, wishes and strengths as well as determine which subjects should be selected and the period of time necessary for achieving this.
You can select your subjects from an extensive range including Mathematics, Natural Sciences, the Humanities and Economics as well as numerous languages.
Depending on your previous knowledge and the desired study workload, International A Levels can be completed within one to three years. Up to 80% of your time can be dedicated to another activity carried out in parallel. The course can be joined at any time.

Instruction in English
The language of instruction is English. If your proficiency in English does not yet correspond to the required B2 level, you may attend our internal preparation courses and start with individual subjects such as German, French or Mathematics. By the time you finish your International A Levels, you should be able to speak English at a near native level.

Form of study
You can decide whether you want to study in a classical classroom setting at one of our locations in Aarau, Basel, Bern, Lucerne or Zurich, or online in the comfort of your home. Our programmes are based on the curricula of the largest education providers worldwide: Cambridge Assessment International Education and Pearson Edexcel.

Study and examinations
In parallel to the lessons, you will study and revise the material on your own. You should allow for approximately two hours of self-study for each hour of instruction. The amount of time invested would depend on the subject, previous knowledge and your learning aptitude.
Each subject is completed individually; several exams may sometimes be required for one subject. Each exam can be repeated as often as desired. Exams are held at the Academia locations in Basel and, starting from 2021, will also be offered in Zurich.
Apart from your teachers, both the educational management and our administration staff are available and happy to support or advise you as required throughout the period of study.
