The ISF Academy Shuyuan
Shuyuan Mission Statement
The ISF Academy Shuyuan is based on the classical Chinese learning sanctuary and the Platonic Academy; the goal of which is independent study and enquiry under the guidance of a master. Set in the 21st century, the courses that the Shuyuan program offers aim to promote deep and thoughtful scholarship in a multidisciplinary environment, allowing selected students to pursue challenging branches of knowledge beyond the regularly-taught curriculum. These courses require long-term dedication, as the skills being developed are cumulative and form the foundation for rigorous, lifelong learning. Currently, the courses offered are geared to Secondary students but will include opportunities ranging from FY to G12 in the near future. Our ultimate goals are the development of sound scholarship, solid academic study, challenging research opportunities, intellectual curiosity and practical wisdom.
