Our non-profit-organization was created in 2004 by business people from Poland and Germany, aiming to prepare the youth and adults for the challenges of the 21st century. We focus on education, intercultural exchange and active commitment to our social and natural environment.
In summer 2021, the foundation became the governing body of SAIL International School, which was based on the primary school "S.A.I.L." founded in 2015. In 2022, we received the accreditation as Cambridge International School and founded our high school.
Together with many local and international partners and supporters, we continue with our community service projects. In special cases, the foundation grants (partly) scholarships for pupils of its international schools.
Joining an international environment from an early age can make four- and five-year-olds skillful people with good problem-solving abilities - not only referring to language education. A bilingual child quickly learns to view the world in more than one lens with a proved positive impact on overall learning.
A cozy, safe environment and a caring form teacher help to do the first steps on the pathway of learning and discovering the world. Below some information about our early age education until the age of 9 years.
In Middle School, pupils aged 9 to 14 go more into depth in the various subjects, guided by a number of specialized subject teachers and supported by their form teacher. Our school focusses on active learning in an encouraging and interdisciplinary approach. Small groups make it possible, to individually approach pupils according to their education and language level. So also new class members have a chance to quickly integrate themselves into the class.
At our High School (Polish: liceum ogólnokształcące) pupils have the opportunity to take the Cambridge IGCSE after 2 years, an entrance qualification to certain universities. After four years, they can take the Polish high school exams (Matura) and Cambridge International A - levels and AS levels. They can also decide to take the "gold standard" of Cambridge, the AICE Diploma, which is not only appreciated by universities from all over the world, including Harvard and Yale, but may also lead to an automatic fellowship on universities in Florida.
Our team looks back to more than 20 years of language training and career service organized in cooperation with universities, labor offices and for international employers. SAIL offers afternoon language courses for children and adults, Cambridge examinations and a preparation program to join our International High School after Polish primary school.
