GP Academy was founded with one goal - to build a dynamic bilingual learning community that holds itself accountable to the highest international academic, facility and faculty standards. We offer year round early childhood education programs for children from 18 Months to 6 years of age. Our children are engaged in age-appropriate, developmentally relevant activities to stimulate their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. The curriculum is based on the United States Department of Education’s Common CORE standards and ensures that students meet age-specific developmental objectives set forth by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI).
The Early Advantage Program at GP Academy focuses on four content areas every day - English, Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM), Vietnamese/Life Skills and a Learning Area. The Learning Areas include an indoor swimming pool, library, a computer room, a multi-purpose room, a music room and three areas for physical development - an indoor gym, a 600m2 outdoor playground and rooftop naturescape playground. The curriculum is a customized blend of a variety of teaching methodologies, a bilingual and bicultural approach that takes the standard VIetnamese curriculum to the next level to create students that are critical thinkers, independent learners, effective communicators, and global citizens that will become lifelong learners.
The inspiration for the curriculum design is the theory of multiple intelligences by Harvard University Professor Howard Gardner which found that there are eight different ways for students to learn best. We believe in giving our students possibilities like never before as a result of lessons that cater to the individual strengths of each child and learning areas built to support individual interests. We approach every day with a sense of imagination, innovation, and fun to help young children learn comfortably and confidently. Our leadership team continuously researches and finds ways to incorporate the latest techniques and technologies based on sound early childhood education research. Our expectations are high for our students and for our faculty and staff - all working together to create a learning community unlike any other in Vietnam.
