iCademy Middle East celebrates its landmark 10th anniversary

 

Dubai, UAE – November 8, 2017

iCademy Middle East, the region’s premier institution for high-quality, online, and blended learning for students from all over the world is celebrating its milestone 10th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, an event for faculty, students, and their families will be held on November 9 at the Media Rotana Hotel, Dubai Media City, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

iCademy Middle East has come a very long way since it opened in 2007. With only five students originally, the school has seen over 5000 students pass through its doors as more and more parents have come to recognise the benefits of the affordable, flexible, and robust education that iCademy Middle East offers.

The school today offers a fully supported, online home-schooling programme, a flexible blended learning centre programme for gifted students, extension courses, academic recovery courses as well as the iCad+ programme which provides bespoke one-on-one learning to children and young adults with unique educational needs.

Using the award-winning and internationally recognised K12 curriculum from the United States, graduates and alumni have gone on to excel in higher education and the wider world.

In April this year, iCademy Middle East was awarded accreditation by NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) – the first online school in the Middle East to achieve this distinction – adding further credibility to the already widely-acknowledged quality of its programme.

Diane Claver, head of iCademy Middle East said: “Our mission has always been to provide a high-quality, online, and blended learning school for students from all over the world and to provide a personalised education for students with a wide range of academic strengths and interests.

“In the past decade, we have grown from an enrolment office and a very small learning centre with only five students to a fully-staffed, internationally-accredited school, which fully supports both blended learners and home-schoolers in achieving their ultimate potential.

“To date we have had more than 5,000 students from the GCC come through our doors, and expect this number to grow as the school continues to develop. As head of school, I am very proud of all that we have accomplished and look forward to the next 10 years.”
