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 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).
