- About Us
Our friendly and dedicated staff is here to make the educational experience of all of our students as rewarding and enjoyable as possible.
Praxis International Institute offers a comprehensive and fulfilling educational experience delivered by highly qualified and caring teachers in a secure and nurturing setting. Our certified and experienced instructors have degrees in Education and are trained to deliver in our unique style of teaching. We also have specialists such as entrepreneurs, or artists or engineers who work with students and teach them what it is like to be in their field.
Small class sizes of 15-20 students allow us to give more attention to each student and their individual learning style. This ensures a high rate of individual instruction which leads to better academic performance and opportunities for scholarships when they go to university or college.
Our classroom design, utilizing a fluid design with movable tables, comfortable seating and conversation circles, creates increased participation and better learning through interaction among students and teachers.
Rather than primarily studying textbooks and writing exams, students actively create and undertake projects applying their learning, much more like what is required in universities and employment. This results in higher levels of learning, retention and better prepared students. Exams count for a very small proportion of evaluation since we do not believe exams are the best method of assessing knowledge.
We create practical application and learning outside of the classroom with project based assignments and learning. We offer exciting and diverse extra curricular activities such as cross country skiing, boating and water skiing, golf, outdoor survival trips, film and photography. We are Experiential!
