The School

  • EF Academy is an international high school, affiliated with EF Education First, which is the largest private education company in the world founded in 1965. We believe "Diversity ampli­fies learning.", while there is no school on the planet as diverse as EF Academy, with students from over 75 nations.

  • EF Academy embodies the educational ideals of internationalism and global perspective. Studying in our schools, you will have opportunities to meet classmates from all around the globe, participate in model United Nations debates, global summer work internships, educational and service tours to developing countries, and local community outreaches. As "experience" and "flexibility" are more and more important in university study applications, we believe a mix of classroom and extra-curricular learning would be the best for our next generations in the 21st centuries. 


EF Academy has local admissions offices all over the world, to deal with admissions & provide supports to parents of our our students. To find out our admissions offices, please visit As part of admissions process we offer students to do the Learner Profile test, which is a unique psychological test developed specially for EF Academy by an American neurosurgeon. The test allows us to find out which academic subjects the student can be potentially successful at and which career route can be recommanded to the student. The test also gives guidance to which type of international academic curriculum would be more suitable for student to maximize his learning potential and therefore successful university placement afterwards.
