For students who wish to prepare for the O-Level or IGCSE exams as private candidates, we welcome you to join the Singapore Learner Academy (SLA), which is an academic division in Singapore Learner which aims to prepare private candidates for national certificate examinations.
How is SLA different from other “private schools”?
SLA is not a full-time “school” as it only has at most 4.5 hrs of lessons a day for 4 days in a week, Monday-Thursday.
SLA does not have Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) such as sports and camps. However, over time, special interest and hobby groups may be formed and enrichment activities may be conducted in the afternoons.
SLA takes in students from Sec 1 level (13-yr-olds) to Sec 4 level (16-yr-olds).
Instead of classroom settings, SLA uses the Assisted Self-Directed Learning (ASDL) model, where students explore and study academic subjects by themselves with the help of teachers and good educational tools, materials and resources.
