The very first Open Day at Akademeia High School


The very first Open Day at Akademeia High School

The very first Open Day at our school took place on Saturday, January 13th 2018.

We talked about our curriculum, our vision of the school and its role in shaping young people’s future. We explained:

  • Why choose A-levels;
  • What is educational diagnostics;
  • Multidimensional education – what does it mean in practice;
  • Why so-called “21st century skills” and developing students’ varied competence are crucial in terms of their intellectual and social development;
  • Why school is not only about classes;

Every question found its answer. Our teachers and Admissions Tutors were answering all questions regarding our curriculum and the recruitment process’ complexities. We invited our guests to take tour of the school.

Apart from that, we have organized a discussion panel of lecturers and graduates of Art/Desing/Architecture faculties at leading international Art Schools. The panelists were:
