Aien Aristeuein (Always to Excel)
The Edinburgh Academy is a co-educational day school for pupils aged 2 to 18 that strives to release the potential of every pupil.
As an outward looking Scottish school, the attributes of the Edinburgh Academy Learner are resilience, curiosity, independence, collaborative attitudes and creativity.
