Hwa Chong is SQA-certified world-class institution

10 Nov 2010

We are pleased to announce that Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) has been conferred the prestigious Singapore Quality Award (SQA) for achieving world-class standard of excellence in education.

HCI is the FIRST school offering the Cambridge GCE A-Level Examinations to be awarded the SQA.  With this accreditation, we have taken another giant step towards fulfilling our vision as "A World-class Institution of Leaders".

SQA is the pinnacle award for business excellence in Singapore.  With the Prime Minister of Singapore as its Patron, the SQA is presented to organisations which possess outstanding management capabilities and deliver superior performance and results. 

The SQA affirmed the merit of our systems and results, particularly our achievements on the world stage.  Some of these top achievements include:

1) The highest number of Public Service Commission scholars in 2010
2) Top placing in the world at the 2009 International Biology Olympiad
3) 2 Angus Ross Prizes in the last 3 years
4) 24 World Championship titles (2006-2011), including the Harvard-Massachusetts Institute of Technology Mathematics Tournament Online Competition, Future Problem Solving Program International, Oracle ThinkQuest Competition, Global Talentrepreneur Innovation & Collaboration Business Competition and the World Choir Games.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all staff members, parents, students, alumni and partners for your hard work, dedication and support. Without your firm commitment, we would not have been able to provide the unrivalled opportunities that distinguish education at Hwa Chong.

Moving forward, Hwa Chong will continue to shape the education landscape in Singapore and beyond as a pioneer, pillar and partner.
