Silverleaf Academy provides a high quality affordable education through various schools in our school network. We believe that high quality affordable education should be available for all children. Schools in developing countries often lack the teaching resources, teachers lack training, and parents cannot afford expensive alternatives.
We have developed a learning model that utilizes highly trained teachers, student centred learning approaches, integrated technology and increased parent involvement.
It is our goal that all Silverleaf schools lead to a greater level of success for students in academics, talent development, leadership and critical thinking skills. We are working to create a future filled with opportunities for all.
Silverleaf Academy students, staff, and parents are encouraged to be excited to try new things, encouraged to take risks and taught to be comfortable making mistakes, learning and finding ways to improve.
After encountering Silverleaf activities those who participate will show their determination in words and actions by believing in what they say and what they do.
