The Academy also welcomes applications from current Form 2-6 students in local curriculum schools, or Grade 9-12 students in international curriculum schools with outstanding performance or achievements in the following areas:

  • STEM (e.g., Mathematics, Science, Informatics Competitions/Olympiad)
