History, Milestone & Development
Shelton College International (SCI) is an advocate of the noblest vision, to provide the gift of true education to mankind in all aspects of the world. SCI aspires to be the premier career development and education centre in Singapore and in the region. Our vision is to be an institution of excellence where staff and students model the values of continuous learning, teamwork and respect in a caring and challenging environment.
Since its humble beginnings in 1993, SCI has transformed itself from a modest tuition centre school to an international college school and has nurtured and groomed many students over the years.
The School first recruited 22 Indonesian students for its bridging course and thereupon ventured into China and recruited students from 22 Chinese provinces and throughout the region.
The school began to invest in awareness programmes and soon there was a successful team focusing on English and ‘O’ level programmes. With the spurring success in GCE ‘O’level, students were able to enter junior colleges and polytechnics in Singapore with a further opportunity to potentially matriculate National University of Singapore.
In a decade, SCI grew by leaps and bounds and was one of the first 20 pioneering private education organisation schools to receive the Singapore Quality Class Award. Since then, the school expanded and increased its course offerings providing more options for students.
SCI differentiated itself to be provider of quality education. The school not only functions as a business, but provides an opportunity for growth in all aspects of development of the individual student. The school has a firm commitment to see that the holistic needs of students are met. SCI focus on students by instilling them a sense of integrity and pride. SCI began its expansion in early 2000 and by 2003 made its mark in Singapore as an outstanding institution and provider of quality education.
Students may be in Singapore for the first time, and have many daunting challenges in adapting the school environment. Our staff chaperon students, make them feel at home and take up the challenges in their studies as well as problems they encounter on a daily basis. All staff members have a sense of belonging and encourages teachers to be warm and approachable, and students to communicate their problems.
In May 2017, Mr. Hill Yang and Dr. Jessica Cheng took over from the school and continue the legacy of providing quality education to students. They brought with them valuable educational experience from China. They envision a bright future ahead for students who have passion and aspire to be working professionals in the Media and Arts industry.
An education of the highest quality is the greatest gift that parents can give to their children. The next global generation will need exceptional academic and intellectual creativity to take on positions of leadership and address the many challenges that face our world. Given this, it is vital that SCI provides genuinely holistic education to prepare students for the responsibilities they will face in their lives. SCI pledges to live up to the rising expectations and strives for continual improvement in advocacy of quality education.
