At World Scholars Academy the safety of our students is our core concern. Our courses are run in safe and secure environments and feature 24/7 professional supervision.
We’re aware that for many of our students this summer will be the first time they will be away from home, and we want to make sure they feel comfortable and prepared.
In the run-up to the summer we offer all our students and parents a phone call in which we will touch base, learn more about your needs and goals on the program, and answer any of your remaining questions. Furthermore, you can have any course-related question answered directly by your instructor. Please also feel free to contact our friendly admissions team at any time. We are here to help!
