About ALASCA (English)
ALASCA - Amsterdam Liberal Arts & Sciences Academy (or in Dutch: academie) - is both a Dutch, publicly funded school and an IB world school, offering modern and innovative education for the artists, academics and leaders of tomorrow. We challenge our students to think and act, to analyze and to be involved.
We offer a balanced and contemporary curriculum, focused on teaching students digital skills, philosophical and conceptual skills, research methodology, English langugage skills and broad perspectives on both social and scientific issues based on the principles of liberal arts & sciences.
Our school is located on Zeeburgereiland and is easy to reach by car, bicycle and public transport. Our building is modern, open and perfectly suited for modern education. We have lab facilities and workshops for the sciences, arts, music, technology/IT and design.
Our school has a large bicycle storage facility.
From school year 21/22 onward ALASCA will offer the IB Diploma Programme (DP) to our students. The DP was established to provide students with a balanced education, facilitate geographic and cultural mobility and to promote international understanding. It is an academically challenging and balanced programme of education. It addresses the intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being of students.
The Diploma Programme is well known and respected by universities worldwide, including The Netherlands. The programme and its diploma have been deemed comparable to the Dutch Vwo-diploma by NUFFIC.
