Message from Head of School

 

Welcome to SEV American College as we celebrate our sixth year. We have grown rapidly and as of August 2019 we now have over 600 students and over one hundred teachers. We continue to enjoy the support, heritage and culture of the Health and Education Foundation and benefit from our associations with our sister schools. Yet as the youngest (and proudest) member of the SEV family we are striving to establish our own culture and identity.

 

We have world class sports facilities, an incredible IT infrastructure and a committed staff and faculty. We value international mindedness, social awareness, innovation and a sense of respect for others and the environment. At the core of our mission, however, is the aim to provide the highest quality education possible with a strong emphasis on English language development and the delivery of many parts of the curriculum in English. We aim to continue sending our graduates to prestigious universities both abroad and in Turkey.

 

As we move forward, SAC aims to strengthen and develop both its classroom learning opportunities and provide a greater range of activities and events for our students outside the classroom. We are committed to our IB program, to achieving and maintaining the standards set by the accreditation process for the Council of International Schools and enhancing an already rigourous Ministry of Education curriculum. With our state of the art campus, we hope to further develop our reputation for innovative approaches to education, success with technology and a unique range of cultural, sporting and artistic activities.

 

As the new Head of School at SAC, I am proud, honoured and excited to be following in the footsteps of illustrious predecessors and to be given the opportunity to lead the school on the next stage of its journey. I look forward to meeting you on the way!
