The Raffles Programme offers a fast-paced, deep and conceptually challenging learning experience. The rigorous curriculum and method of instruction develops our students' ability to think in complex and advanced ways. More than just content-based learning, mentoring by subject experts also keeps the learning relevant and applicable to the real world.
In addition to regular curricular subjects leading up to the 'A' Levels, the Raffles Programme curriculum offers The Raffles Academy, The Raffles Philosophy Course and Research Education.
Students also have the opportunity to pursue Art and Music under the Raffles Art Elective Programme and the Music Elective Programme, the latter of which is an MOE Special Programme. Languages like Japanese, French and German are also offered.
Started in 2007, the Raffles Academy is a talent development programme designed to meet the learning needs of exceptionally gifted students in a particular subject.
The Raffles Programme (RP) is a six-year through-train programme offered by Raffles Institution (RI) and Raffles Girls' School. Its curriculum model and framework is based on the principles of gifted education. However, we recognise that there are students who have a much higher ability, interest and motivation than their peers, and who need more individualised attention. The Raffles Academy was thus established to cater to this group of students, by providing them with an accelerated and enriched curriculum.
Spanning from Year 3 to Year 6, students join the Raffles Academy at Year 3 and at Year 5. Students can offer a maximum of up to two of the following eight subjects in the Raffles Academy: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Literature, History, Geography and Music. Currently, there are around 100 students in the Raffles Academy at Year 3 and another 100 students at Year 4. For Year 5 and 6, there are approximately 200 students at each level.
Raffles Academy students are pulled-out of their RP classes to attend lessons in the subject that they specialise in. For example, a student who is in the Raffles Academy (Physics) will join other students who are as passionate about the subject as he is for all his Physics lessons. These lessons can thus explore ideas and concepts in greater depth, breadth and complexity. For the other subjects, he will continue with his class under the RP. In this way, lesson time is optimised as curriculum and instruction are commensurate with students' aptitude and learning capacity.
The Raffles Academy provides a range of enrichment programmes to develop its students. These include participation in research projects and attachments with various universities, as well as in competitions at the national and international levels. Truly exceptional students have the opportunity to audit university modules.

During Years 1-4, students learn critical and reflective thinking skills that enable them to think and reason logically and philosophically, raising their level of self-awareness and ability to respond to new ideas. This discipline also gives students the tools to excel in the challenging 'A' Level subject 'Knowledge and Inquiry'.
In Year 1 - 4, students learn skills for research and presentation. These include information literacy, research planning and design, data collection, report writing and journaling, collaborative work and public presentation.
