Our Philosophy

As Singapore’s only private education institution offering both Primary and Secondary level classes, SYAS administers the Singapore curriculum via an integrated pedagogy. In addition to the academic, students will be enriched by a dynamic curriculum that includes, but is not limited to, spiritual enrichment, the philosophy of sports and social decorum. This is guided by our long-standing philosophical belief: Sanyu (三育) or “Three Education” of Mind, Body and Soul.

Mind
  • We believe every child is capable of learning
  • We expect students and staff to put forth their best effort in every endeavour
  • We hope to impart the love for lifelong learning
Body
  • We believe a healthy body is necessary for learning
  • We expect students and staff to be equally concerned about their health as they are academic results
  • We hope to cultivate healthy living habits among our students and staff
Soul
  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and given to us as a moral compass for our lives
  • We expect that all our teachings are in line with the Word of God
  • We hope all students and staff will reflect on the school’s seven core values in their lives
