Akademeia Prep Courses

Each academic session involves up to eight weeks of lessons and are designed as modules that can be completed individually or combined with one other module for more in-depth study. Led by our own faculty staff, familiar both with the principles that underpin our approach to learning and the common challenges students come up against when they join Akademeia, the Preparatory Courses furnish participants with some of the key knowledge and academic skills necessary to embark on successful academic careers.

The third booster session is designed for students who are new to the courses or who joined in January for the second session only.

Third edition – 6 weeks

April 25th to April 29th -1 week
May 2nd to May 6th – break (no classes)

English for Academic Purposes

The English for Academic Purposes Course is an ideal way to experience Akademeia’s first-class approach to learning for the first time. This exclusively designed online course is geared towards students between the ages of 12-14 who will benefit from two lessons of 1.5 hours each week for the duration of the course.  

Offered at two levels, depending on the existing language skills of each student, both syllabuses will prime participants though the same overriding dual focus: addressing the most common language mistakes we know hold students back when they come to our School, as well as equipping learners with the necessary skills and strategies to succeed in demanding educational contexts. Key elements of the English language, combining both structural and lexical focusses, will provide students with the foundations necessary to successfully complete many of the same academic assignments required of our term-time students, such as research skills, essay writing, presentation delivery and interacting with different texts.

Duration: 6 weeks

Minimum English language level required to participate – A2 level. Students will be grouped into two levels based on their current level of English.


 

Mathematics

The Preparatory Mathematics Course is intended to provide a necessary foundation for success in an academic mathematics pathway. Split into two age groups, the course is designed for participants currently attending year 8 (grade 7 in the Polish and American systems) or year 9.

The Year 10 entry course is aligned to meet iGCSE content standards and mathematical practices, with the Year 9 entry course also carefully adapted to the age and experience of its participants. Students will be provided with the opportunity to learn a variety of mathematical processes, including problem solving, communicating and mathematical reasoning. They will be taught how to make connections between the subject and its applications, become mathematically literate, and to appreciate and value mathematics while making informed decisions as contributors to wider society.

A good, strong foundation in these areas of mathematics is necessary for success in future mathematics courses and this course will help students further understand, appreciate and enjoy maths so they are in a prime position to both study at Akademeia and develop a life-long affinity with the subject.

Critical Thinking

We invite 13-16 years old students to our Critical Thinking course, which provides an introduction to the essential range of skills that help to analyse information, acquire meaningful knowledge, express well-justified opinions and comment on important public issues. In order to achieve this, we may touch on the following categories: 

  • Information skills: perspectives, research, analysis, synthesis, planning, questioning.
  • Critical thinking skills: reasoning, evidence, claims, drawing conclusions, bias and vested interest, statements of argument (fact, opinion, prediction and value judgement), problem-solving, empathy.
  • Independent learning skills: memory, note-taking, reflection, evaluation
  • Collaboration skills: teamwork, decision-making, creativity
  • Communication skills: reading, writing, listening, speaking

Tailored to learners considering applying to Akademeia in year 12, this course provides the ideal preparation to develop the key transferrable academic skills so valued by our School and necessary to succeed in demanding educational contexts.
