Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary
Learn More About The Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary
The Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary began teaching English and Chinese training to 13 children of Chinese entrepreneurs in a modest shophouse at No. 70 Amoy Street. Gradually, the local population became aware of its excellent educational standards. The Anglo-Chinese School family as we know it today started with a divine call to Methodist Reverend William Fitzjames Oldham to establish a mission in Southeast Asia. There were few educational alternatives for the many youngsters in Singapore’s city-port at the time. Oldham’s goal was to provide the young boys he observed wandering the streets with a good education. He started Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary on March 1, 1886, to prepare pupils to serve “God and mankind.”
Philosophy, culture, and ethos in the classroom:
Our school’s fundamental objective, which dates back to 1886, is to prepare our students to be change agents with Godly values and strong character, prepared and eager to serve and lead in the home, nation, and global world. Anglo-Chinese School Independent Secondary focus on general values development and a family and community-oriented educational atmosphere. Students in grades 1-4 engage in two CCAs (a Uniformed Group and a Sports/Club/Society/Performing Arts Group).
Years 1-4: A Scholar, Officer, and Gentleman; Change Catalyst for God and Humanity. Years 5 and 6: A scholar, leader, and global citizen; a catalyst for change, for God, and humanity.
Through the overall development of our students, to be a beacon of truth and light, a world-class university.
A holistic education gives pupils a broad and deep basis for lifetime learning and values and life skills development. The two-CCA policy at the school seeks to provide pupils with a well-rounded education. It allows children to identify their abilities, interests, and talents and prepares them to deal with obstacles they may experience later in life. Every ACSian in Years 1 through 4 gets required to participate in two CCAs: one Uniformed Group (UG) and the other, either a Sport, a Performing Art, or a Club/Society.
