Hwa Chong Institution Secondary
Guide To Know More About The Hwa Chong Institution Secondary
Hwa Chong Institution Secondary (HCI) is a Singaporean independent institution with a long and illustrious history. In 2005, the previous Chinese High School (TCHS) and Hwa Chong Junior College merged to establish the Institution (HCJC). Mr Tan Kah Kee established the then Chinese High School (TCHS) in 1919 to meet the requirements of the Chinese community’s elementary school graduates. It was Southeast Asia’s first Chinese-language secondary school. All students participate in a long-term leadership and character education curriculum that emphasises active citizenship and the value of giving back to the community. The numerous local and international service-learning initiatives sponsored by Hwa Chong Institution Secondary students attest to the school’s lasting service culture. Many Hwa Chong graduates are now making significant contributions to the country in various sectors, including academics, entrepreneurship, public service, and charity.
School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos:
Hwa Chong Institution Secondary provides an academically interesting, safe, and enjoyable environment for students from all walks of life. We give a 6-year Integrated Programme (IP) based on inquiry that educates students to appreciate creativity, integrity, enthusiasm, and compassion. All students get a consistent character education that motivates them to participate in local and worldwide service-learning programs. The objective of the Hwa Chong Institution Secondary (HCI) is to develop leaders for the nation: leaders with a desire to help others. We take pleasure in developing servant leaders who are civically responsible and compassionate. Every year, Hwa Chong students serve the disadvantaged via various programs. Many of our students have teamed up with essential social service organisations to lead creative Values-in-Action programs. As active members of civil society, Hwa Chong students have the chance to learn from and contribute to local and global communities via a range of student-led projects. These undertakings are frequently the start of a long-term commitment to community service.
Our vast global network connects our students to renowned institutions and industrial partners, combining the best of East and West. We collaborate closely with business leaders and educators and encourage our students to pursue interests across disciplines. Each year, our students gain admission to some of the world’s great universities after completing their undergraduate studies at premier schools.
