Besides providing primary education, TLS Academy also functions as an EduTrust-certified private secondary school in Singapore to provide individualised and holistic private education for both local and international students.
We cater to students from Grade 1 to Grade 12 (equivalent to primary to post-secondary education). Upon completion, graduating students will receive an American High School Diploma.
Since its inception, TLS Academy has enrolled over 200 international students from over 20 nationalities.
At TLS Academy, learning is individualised to suit each and every student’s pace. Every student is encouraged to learn more actively, and nurtured to love learning that stays with them throughout their lives.
Our holistic and individualised approach to learning allows us to cater to each child’s academic, social and psychological needs. The needs of each student are met at their individual performance level. Each student advance through the curriculum at their optimum rate of achievement. Depending on the student’s rate of academic development and level of motivation, he or she may graduate before or beyond his or her chronological age.
Because of the individualised and holistic nature of our programme, many students who face academic or social challenges in other schools may find TLS Academy conducive and accommodative.
Student counselling and mentoring also form part of our method to ensure students perform at their best without being bogged down by problems and stresses in life.
Centrally located in Singapore within 8 minutes’ walk of Newton MRT station, TLS Academy currently occupies a total floor area of approximately 84 sq. metres at 10 Winstedt Road (next to ACS Junior School).
The facility includes a Learning Centre (Training Room) designed to hold a maximum capacity of 30 students, a reception/ rest area and an office.
