THE HCI ADVANTAGE
Best of Chinese Values and Western Ideas
At the heart of the Hwa Chong IP is the emphasis we place on moral and character education. The best of Chinese values and Western ideas that have had a strong impact on society are infused into our school curriculum and culture.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure that all Hwa Chong students are well-versed in the developments and challenges of the modern world, as well as to be able articulate and engage these in both English and Chinese languages. For example, one of the subjects, Current Affairs, requires students to discuss and debate current real-world issues in both English and Chinese.
Cultivating Minds for the Future
Informed by Howard Gardner’s (2008) Five Minds for the Future, Hwa Chong cultivates in our students the Disciplined Mind, the Synthesising Mind, the Creating Mind, the Respectful Mind, the Ethical Mind, as well as a sixth mind, the Entrepreneurial Mind. Individuals equipped with these six minds will thrive in the global society.
Deep Appreciation of Eastern and Western Cultures
Hwa Chong’s leadership framework seeks to nurture resilient individuals with a keen sense of purpose, commitment and compassion. In addition, these individuals would be bicultural talents with a deep appreciation for both Eastern and Western cultures.
Ong Teng Cheong Leadership Programme
Hwa Chong’s well-established Ong Teng Cheong Leadership Programme further develops our students’ intellectual, leadership, and personal potential.
Students in this programme are involved in entrepreneurial training, leadership mentoring and grassroots attachment schemes, cross-cultural studies, and interaction with peers from overseas.
In the end, our vision is to see all our students graduate as confident, able, and caring individuals, ready to take on leadership roles in both local and global communities.BACK TO TOP
