At the Edinburgh Academy, we prepare our pupils for life after school by creating well-rounded individuals with diverse interests. We believe this leads to happier lives and creates healthier members of society.
It is why we value our Creative Curriculum so highly, making the Edinburgh Academy what we consider College-prep Plus.
EA pupils do not limit themselves to only core academic subjects, rather, they are encouraged to pursue and strengthen other interests. A pupil may excel in Physics, Hockey and Drama; or be a profoundly sensitive painter, cellist and mathlete.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself;
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
This verse from Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself, reminds us that humans are multi-faceted, and that many things make us who we are. It is a philosophy that we embrace at the Edinburgh Academy, and makes our pupils truly Grounded in Scotland, Ready for the World.
