CURRICULUM

The American Academy Larnaca promises an innovative and challenging academic environment in which the pursuit of excellence is balanced by kindness to support each individual to achieve his/her full potential.

We believe in a well-rounded general education and our students are exposed to a range of multi-disciplinary subjects from the very first years of secondary school. As they enter upper school they have the opportunity to carve out their own academic path based on what captivates their curiosity and excites their imagination.

University entry is achieved via GCSE and GCE A-Levels and/or the school Apolyterio which is recognised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture and universities worldwide.
