In February 2019, Oakridge began an exciting new story when it became part of the world’s leading family of international schools, Nord Anglia Education. From Hyderabad to Houston, Bangalore to Beijing, Mohali to Moscow and Visakhapatnam to Washington, Oakridge is now part of a global community of 66 International schools spread across 29 countries.
This September will see the launch of Global Campus Online across all Oakridge schools. Global Campus is unique to Nord Anglia schools and connects more than 64,000 NAE students around the world so that they can collaborate, discuss and learn together every day. Students can access a rich array of courses, information and work with invited experts through this platform.
Nord Anglia brings with it a range of learning collaborations with the world’s leading organisations like MIT, Juilliard, and UNICEF which will allow Oakridge students to enhance their learning and connect beyond the classroom. We have started the collaborative program roll out with the MIT – Nord Anglia STEAM collaboration, which offers an interdisciplinary approach to learning the STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, art and maths), where students will learn from MIT researchers, scientists and experts at the forefront of these fields, as well as taking a hands-on approach to problem solving. The first chapter of the program with In-school MIT STEAM challenges is being launched in Oakridge Visakhapatnam. This programme will be launched in other Oakridge schools from September 2020.
Learning should not be confined to the classrooms. The Global expeditions offer to provide students an opportunity to travel, explore the world and develop a new perspective. From participating in highly rewarding service work for the local community in Tanzania to exciting adventure challenges in the Swiss Alps, the expedition program has it all.
This new partnership provides an excellent opportunity to support Oakridge’s vision of developing confident, creative global citizens with a thirst for knowledge and the vision to create a better world. Let your child be part of this global journey with Oakridge.
