World-class content and personalized learning approaches contribute to the establishment of a solid academic foundation.

WHAT is Subject Courses?


Based on the core teaching philosophy of student-centered learning (SCL) In MSA, we believe that all instructional designs should be flexible for students to learn at their own pace and tailor their personalized learning needs.

With the help of online learning platforms, student could personalize their learning objectives, contents, and progress. In addition, teachers’ offline instruction and other learning scenarios such as peer learning groups can also enhance students’ online learning, so that students could fully understand the knowledge they have learned online and make sure that they are in an appropriate learning progress.

Eight Academic Divisions

8 大学部设置

Based on the requirements to master knowledge points in SAT, IB, and AP (Advanced Placement) courses system, we draw a Knowledge Map of MSA and identify cognitive requirements of each course system for the same knowledge point.

When MSA students finish the discipline learning, they will “light” (self test) the concepts and knowledge on the Knowledge Map.

On the Knowledge Map, we will help students evaluate their mastery of knowledge by answering questions of standardized examinations. For example, if a student believes that he or she reaches the level of proficiency in the application of the concept of “photosynthesis”, he or she must answer the test questions of the system to identify whether he or she can light the level of proficiency in the application of this knowledge point.

What is Project-based Learning?


Knowledge begins from practice. Only when knowledge is associated with the students’ curiosity and needs and used in life and work, can theoretical knowledge be put into practice. PBL can help students break over traditional learning scenarios, and overcome difficulties and solve practical problems by working on projects, thus stimulating them to actively integrate and apply cross-disciplinary knowledge. PBL can also improve students' core competencies, including critical thinking, communication and collaboration, and creativity that can support them adapting to future development.

Why do we need Project-based Learning?


Stimulating intrinsic motivation, learning how to learn, and developing systems view.

Deeper Learning


A person’s sustained development depends on his/her intrinsic motivation and ways of thinking. DL can help students to explore themselves for internal and to establish a connection with the outside world for external. In the process of self-exploration, they will figure out the critical philosophical problems: who am I and what do I want to be? In the process to understand the world, they will realize the relationships between themselves and other people, and society and environment, and shape their own values and world views.
