SCIA welcomes pioneer batch of students on Singapore National Day

Singapore celebrates 53 years of independence this year. Back in 1965, when Singapore was separated from Malaysia, the island was tiny, undeveloped and had no natural resources.

In a short span of 53 years, Singapore is lauded for many achievements including having the second-most competitive economy, fourth largest financial centre and world’s best airport.

The secret of this success lies in developing the country’s only available resource – its people. The Singapore government recognised education as the key that would unlock the path towards transforming the city-state from third-world to first.

Fast forward to today, education remains paramount to the nation’s progress as Singapore continues to be one of the leading countries in education and ranks amongst the top in international educational studies.

The growth of Singapore gave birth and purpose to Singapore Institute of Management (SIM) Group. Along with the country’s economic expansion and progress and SIM’s growth, Singapore (Cambodia) International Academy (SCIA) was conceived as the first overseas venture out of Singapore.

Embracing SCIA’s twin mission of “Doing Good” and “Doing Well”, we are committed to a full spectrum of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives besides providing high quality education.

These include providing Scholarships and CSR efforts in supporting causes for education, youth and children. SCIA will further invest in continuing professional development for educators in Cambodia with our Educator Development Centre (EDC), to enhance the quality of educators’ training in Cambodia. This will have greater multiplier effect on the children’s progress in education.

On 13 August, a few days after Singapore National Day, SCIA will welcome our pioneer batch of pre-school to high school students.

Building on Singapore’s success in equipping its young nation population with the education and skill sets to be future-ready, SCIA wishes to accomplish the same for Cambodia; by unlocking the potential of many future leaders through education.

We are grateful to our students, parents, business partners and staff who have placed good faith in us and journeyed with us in our first overseas endeavour in Cambodia.

On behalf of SCIA and SIM Group, we would like to wish peace and prosperity for Singapore on its 53rd National Day! Majulah Singapura (Onward Singapore)! SCIA
