Generally, scores of 3 or above are given advanced university credit when a student registers for university courses.

Rotary International Visits Yangon Academy

On Friday, May 4, Yangon Academy was honored to host several special guests from Rotary International. Visiting the School and speaking to all of our high school students was Mr. Paul Netzel, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Rotary International Foundation. As some of you may know, Rotary International is an American-founded international service club focused on providing community service throughout the world. Currently, Rotary International is working on providing 100 villages in Myanmar’s Delta region with the facilities and systems needed for clean drinking water.

Mr. Netzel’s remarks resonated with both our students and faculty as he spoke about one of our prime Student Learning Outcomes – developing responsible global citizens. Here at Yangon Academy, we will be starting the very first Rotary-sponsored, junior-level community-service club in all of Myanmar. This Club, called “Interact”, will be formally launched next August at the start of the school year. With this student-leadership initiative, Yangon Academy hopes to realize the inspiring motto of Rotary International, “Service Above Self.”
