Yes, TLS Academy is registered as a Private Education Institute with the Committee for Private Education (CPE), appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG). It also attained EduTrust certification status which distinguishes high-quality private schools from other private schools in Singapore.
TLS Academy understands that every student develops and learns differently. Therefore, learning is individualised to suit every individual student’s pace and needs. If you are keen on allowing your child to learn more actively and independently, TLS Academy is the place to be with. Besides the personalised individual attention and its bespoke curated approach, the class size is small with a staff-student ratio of 1:8.
TLS was originally “The Learning Sanctuary” which stands true to the organisation’s mission which affirms its committment to a holistic education based on Christian principles, transforming lives and nurturing the leaders of tomorrow.
For students who have completed the curriculum, the graduation rate is 100%. The progression rate, which measures the number of graduates that progressed to institutes of higher learning, is also 100%.

Like all schools, TLS Academy had to adhere to strict guidelines given by the CPE (Committee for Private Education) which took reference from the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the Ministry of Education (MOE). Because of the individualised nature of its curriculum, TLS Academy’s response was swift during the lockdown when all schools were required to go on HBL (home-based learning). There were no COVID cases even at the height of the pandemic.
