About Akademeia High School

Akademeia High School is a new international, academically selective school in Warsaw, offering A Levels and iGCSEs. Our school focuses on developing both students’ academic abilities and their artistic, athletic and leadership potential. The majority of our students are preparing to study at Oxbridge, Russell group, and Ivy League universities as well as acclaimed architecture, art, and music schools. The school offers a substantial scholarship program with about 20% of students being scholars.

You will have a unique opportunity to be part of a vibrant academic community that is actively engaged in shaping the school’s ethos. We are both informed by tradition, as many teachers have experience of studying and teaching in the UK, and inspired by new developments in education, e.g. the Harkness Table method, interdisciplinary projects, blended learning, formative assessment. To support pastoral and academic work, we use our own assessment and development program and also offer school-designed enrichment courses to supplement iGCSE/A Level learning. 

In September 2017, the school moved to a state-of-the-art, purpose-designed building with modern facilities for both students and teachers.
