The SIS PEAK advantage is a Junior College programme that is carefully crafted to give students access to their best-fit University. Students need more than strong grades to attend Harvard, Stanford, Oxford or Cambridge. They must demonstrate character, tenacity, leadership and commitment to community. Our JC program engages, inspires and empowers students to attain all the attributes desired by the best Universities.
A Gold Standard Education
SIS-PIK offers a unique combination of the IB Diploma Programme and BTEC. We offer a world-class Junior College program, specifically tailored to help students access the best Universities.
What is the IB? The IB is well-recognized and highly rated by Colleges and Universities around the world. It is a rigorous course culminating in a set of examinations at the end of JC.
How Do Universities Feel About BTEC?
Universities have learned that BTEC are a great alternative to A-Levels, and very few institutions won’t consider BTEC students as candidates. Even Oxford & Cambridge include BTEC as part of their overall course requirements, although usually alongside other qualifications. BTEC are also awarded with the same UCAS points as A levels and IB subjects, hence no issues with getting into universities. BTEC promote independent learning and critical problem solving. All students end up with a portfolio of evidence which is useful for entrance to university or the world of work.
What is the SIS PEAK advantage?
we create learning experiences that make students excited to learn
Our students earn outstanding IB results and gain entry to the world’s top universities through a structured program designed to allow students to excel.
we create learning experiences that make students want to learn more
At SIS-PIK, students reach out to the community to not only affect some positive change, but to gain some rich life experience as well. These experiences often help uncover a passion or a spark to give added purpose, focus and meaning in their lives. At SIS-PIK we stretch learning beyond the walls of the classroom and the school.
we develop learners who create their own learning experiences
Students need to belong to a school who believes in them and empowers them to discover and follow their dreams. They need teachers who see beyond grades and unlock the potential of every student. We are a school who cares about them as individuals and inspires them to grow. The best schools, and the best teachers are those who nurture and educate the whole child.

Set Your Gaze To The Best Universities

Our JC program inspires students with the desire to change the world, and help them build the skills to make those changes happen. According to author Dr Wagner, students must start with passion. The journey of innovative leadership begins with play, the activities young people find most fun, engaging, even whimsical, and then advances into an energizing and motivating passion, finally flowering as a deep and abiding purpose. The path to success lies in students creating their own personal journey of play to passion to purpose.
Our Junior College program is the SIS Peak of our school. We are a school proud to stretch beyond our academic program. We are a school that gives students opportunities to explore their passions beyond the classroom, and encourages students to grow from play to passion to purpose. We provide inspiration for SIS-PIK students to be the best they can be.
These are the seeds by which we can grow our scholars who will change the world.
We enjoy a vibrant co-curricular ethos at SIS-PIK. Students can explore their passions through digital art, music production, or sports. We celebrate enjoyment, breadth of participation and excellence. Through our CCA program, students understand excellent sportsmanship and the notion of fair play. Our goal is effort, improvement, personal achievement and the grace of enjoying a hard-earned win.
