A multicultural environment supporting diversity

A quality education and our students’ results are the best confirmation of our success. This is why Allison Academy’s primary motivation and mission is to help its students become citizens of the world whose knowledge, ideas and actions will make them successful people and role models for future generations. Our goal is to inspire our diverse community of students and to promote moral, intellectual, physical and academic excellence so that each of them may rise to honorable achievements, and contribute to the common good.

A quality education as the key to success gives us the ability to properly perceive the world around us, to make the right decisions and to use our opportunities in the best way possible. Our program places an emphasis on meeting individual needs through small class sizes and a nurturing environment where each student’s self-esteem is valued and developed. This is why our mission is to give our students the strength and wisdom to change the world for the better through their decisions.

Having a vision that our school is a place where new ideas are born, talents nourished and knowledge expanded, we would like to encourage our students and parents both to join us in our common efforts and share with us the joy of our successes.

Values we cherish

Our school works in partnership with each student’s parents to help them develop a life-long love for learning, a healthy self-image, and a positive attitude that will allow each student to grow academically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.

Students come to our school not because they have to but because they want to, which is of paramount importance to us. This is why we try to provide an environment that promotes learning and socializing and which reflects the values that we cherish.

It is important that students learn to be just, fair and honest with themselves and with others. During the process of development our students become more self-aware, they develop ambition and they become capable of making self-assessments and expressing their own opinions. These are all qualities necessary to build relationships with others. We encourage them to form their own opinions, beliefs and value system through the cultivation of personal integrity. We also promote openness to multiculturalism and preserving the world’s cultural heritage.

Healthy environment for all

Allison Academy is a healthy environment both ecologically and ethically. We encourage our students to develop and practice healthy lifestyles. It is significant that they are aware of the importance of their own health and safety, as well as the need for nurturing and developing their own physical ability.

The academic programs here at Allison Academy are designed to engage our students. It is our goal to help them understand, and appreciate the commonalities and the differences among diverse cultures, races, national origins, and religions.
