School Community
Student community

Student community

A vital aspect of a successful school is its student body. Academic ability and motivation are important, and also significant is a diversity of talents and interests.

We attract both science students who wish to focus on understanding
the world, as well as those interested in social issues who want to change the
world. A significant proportion of our students are pursuing their passion in the arts – both visual and performative. We have students who live in Warsaw and those who are from further afield. Up to a fifth of our students qualify for
scholarships that enable those from diverse backgrounds to study at the school.

Our students meet and work together through various school activities that
are often cross-year in scope. They inspire one another and help one another
see the world from differing perspectives. They get to know the faculty and
each other well, and they find other in their cohort with whom they can realise
various projects and plans.

The house system

Students at Akademeia High School work in communities called houses.

The houses, modeled on similar systems in British secondary schools, are an excellent and proven way to build a spirit of healthy competition, stimulate creativity and foster relationships between students. Students gain experience communicating in groups, run democratic elections and learn to be active and committed members of society.


The demands placed upon the student groups in the houses help them to develop a range of skills:

  • preparation for theater projects teaches teamwork and helps students gain confidence in public speaking;
  • charitable initiatives provide an opportunity to develop social awareness and empathy;
  • study trips and meetings with interesting figures arouse passions, and prove that there is more joy to be had when studies and work are coupled with commitment.
