Secondary School General Information


At the American Academy Nicosia Secondary department, we focus at providing quality education in a caring environment for children from Year 7 to Year 13 (12 year olds to 18 year olds) following the British National Curriculum. Students 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 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.

Furthermore, as part of our holistic approach to education, students are encouraged to join a range of after school clubs ranging from sports activities, creative clubs, languages, drama, environmental, dance, music, Model UN, The Duke of Edinburg Award DoE and a more. This wide range of additional activities helps students to find and develop new skills, deepen friendships and enlarge their experience.

Our graduating students, upon completion of their secondary education acquire their(I)GCSE and AS/ A Level certificates as well as the American Academy Nicosia Apolytirion, Certificate of Completion of Secondary 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.
