Languages and co-curricular

Students may opt to take classes in foreign languages as well as participate in co-curricular activities such as electives, sport, volunteering, lecture series, and more. Enrichment activities as the important and permanent part of our overall study plan are obligatory for all students.

Monitoring pupil progress and assessment

An integral part of the curriculum is measuring students progress through the use of a variety of assessment techniques:

1. Individualised reports for each subject

Each term, each pupil receives a qualitative report outlining the material covered during class, progress made by the pupil since the previous report, the pupil’s attitude and level of engagement with the subject, and any recommendations the teacher has. These reports are in turn shared with the pupils and their parents.

2. End-of-Term examination sessions

Teachers do not issue grades at Akademeia High School, instead a transcript for a given term contains the results of all the End-of-Term exams conducted that year. Pupils are presented with an individualised transcript statistical analysis of their results shortly after the exam session.

3. One-to-one meetings with mentors

Systematically over the course of the school year, pupils have several interactions with their mentors and also with the headmaster. The aims of these sessions are to not only discuss academic progress based on pupils’ reports and exam session results, but also to evaluate how the pupil is coping with their studies and schoolwork and to indicate the future possibilities
