Our rigorous program focuses on innovative practices that promote learning at deeper levels. Elementary students are encouraged the create new things and the solving of real-world problems. By experience-based learning, students are empowered to set goals, reflect on their learning, and take action. Creativity is developed as students are provoked to think deeper and share their learning in various ways.


The International – American Program focuses on the Core Subjects, and the Specialist Subjects taught in English, which is licensed by the Greenville Area District School Board (Pennsylvania, USA). WASS students who meet the Pennsylvania Department of Education graduation requirements will be awarded the American Diploma, degreed by Greenville High School (Pennsylvania, USA) with a recognized qualification at all schools in the US, Australia, Canada, and other English schools worldwide.


The Bilingual – American Program focuses on the American Core Subjects, taught in English, and the combination between the American Specialist Subjects and the MoET Curriculum taught in Vietnamese. After grade 8th, students can choose to continue studying the Vietnamese American Bilingual program and receive the MoET Diploma and participate in English competency tests such as IELTS, SAT, and ACT. Alternatively, students can transfer to the American Diploma Pathway to receive the Greenville High School Diploma (Pennsylvania, USA).


The English for Academic Purposes Program program focuses on the essential component of English based on Pennsylvania Literacy Standard and the MoET curriculum. It offers new students from grades 1–8 to acquire the English level needed to communicate successfully and effectively in social and academic situations. This is the transition step to the bilingual program for students who do not meet the entrance test in English Proficiency.
