The inaugural microcampuses will be limited to between 30 and 40 students.
George Makhviladze, Managing Director of Swiss American Academy says, “The addition of the Great Teachers' Academy program will permit S.A.A. students to study for a high school diploma in one or a combination of the Swiss, UK, Russian, Kazakhstan and U.S. academic systems and allow S.A.A. students to cooperate in project based learning activities with students at all Great Teachers' Academy campuses.”
Mike Davis, President of Great Teachers’ Academy, expressed excitement about the collaborative effort and shared his thoughts regarding the potential benefit for American students. “Great Teachers’ Academy is steadfast in its quest to personalize education while expanding the reach of the educational experience.
