Get To Know Us
At the American Academy Nicosia Secondary school, we focus on providing quality education
in a caring environment for children from Year 7 to Year 13 (12 years old to 18 years old)
following the UK Curriculum.


tudents follow a broad and balanced curriculum with a variety of subjects within a range of Faculties covering all their interests and needs equipping them for a successful future.
Our graduating students, upon completion of their secondary school education acquire their (I)GCSE and AS/ A Level certificates as well as the American Academy Nicosia Apolytirion, certificate of completion of secondary school education, which is recognized by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Cyprus according to the Private School’s Law of 1971 and its amendments since.


ur students have the opportunity to study IGCSE, GCSE and GCE AS and A levels, available through the Cambridge International and Edexcel Examination Boards. Focusing upon a strong academic programme our students are expected to strive for, and achieve, excellent results, whilst also developing their full potential in all areas of their lives both academic in terms of their results in their external examinations as well as pastoral in terms of the character they develop through the years. Their progress is monitored closely by their teachers through the use of cognitive ability tests early in their educational journey, setting individual targets for them and developing strategies to ensure that each child is reached with the necessary tools and methods in order to maximize their learning and add value to their education.

The American Academy Nicosia students have a high rate of success in their (I)GCSE, AS and A Level examination each year achieving international awards and recognitions. We are proud of the performance of our students as we know that each one of them is a special individual, with gifts and talents that require an environment such as ours to help them unfold their wings and learn to fly.


t the American Academy Nicosia we believe that providing a framework of care and support for our students is central to their development within our multi-ethnic, multi-cultural student body.  We support the unique range of social, emotional and personal needs that makes every student special, ensuring that each one is able to make full use of the learning opportunities within the school.

Our experienced Pastoral Care Team provides counselling, personal guidance, developing programmes of personal and social education for students in Pre-school & Kindergarten, Primary and Secondary Departments. The team ensures good relationships within the school community, interacting with the students, the teachers and parents. For our senior students, the team also offers vocational counselling regarding academic and careers options as well as support with university applications.

Students and parents are encouraged to share any matters of concern with Class or Form teachers so that issues can be resolved quickly and effectively by the Pastoral Care Team. In this way, a safe, secure and supportive school environment is maintained.

Community is where people live in one place or district considered as a whole. Either with common interests or having things in common. Luckily, my school offers this opportunity to be part of a community and to have a sense of belonging which is highly important.
