Our educational philosophy is centered on experiential learning. We believe in helping students develop socio-emotionally in addition to providing opportunities for intellectual growth. Our activities offer an ideal chance for students to learn to be adaptable and open-minded while developing a respect for the people and world around them.
The learning environment at Sail in Asia provides a low-stress setting away from the classroom where students feel relaxed and open to learning. Our programs are designed to be engaging so that students develop a genuine interest and thirst for knowledge. While sailing, students develop a sense of accomplishments and responsibility for what is truly a formative life experience. Rather than lecturing students, our learning connect activities lead students through self-discovery learning allowing them to draw fresh conclusions from the evidence before them. We turn abstract concepts into concrete applications and examples.
Our principal has fostered a calculated approach to teaching that is mindful of students’ different learning strategies and styles. His experience as an outdoor education teacher for exceptional students in England has driven a teaching philosophy that is highly practical and caters to auditory, visual and kinaesthetic learners.
Activities are carefully designed to be challenging, but also provide all that is needed for students to succeed. Learning goals and topics have been carefully aligned to several international curricula to ensure that time spent at Sail in Asia is not time lost.
Our programs ensure that all of this is possible within a safe and open environment. Risk assessments of each of our activities are rigorously carried out and students are never put in a situation where their personal safety is at risk.
In this section, we have provided various support documents for educators to get a better understanding of how our programs align with your specific curricular needs.
