Vision, Mission, and Core Values
At Charterhouse Malaysia, we are committed to providing an education that prepares students for the challenges and opportunities of the future. Our vision, mission, and core values drive our approach to education and shape the experiences we offer to our students.
Vision : Future Ready – Education for a New Reality
We believe that education needs to evolve to meet the demands of an increasingly interconnected and technologically advanced world. Our vision is to provide Future Ready Education that goes beyond academic intelligence. We aim to develop well-rounded students who possess not only strong academic foundations but also high levels of emotional intelligence, creativity, critical thinking, and adaptability. By equipping our students with the necessary skills, knowledge, and values to succeed in a rapidly changing world, we inspire them to learn and empower them to excel.
Mission : Study, Create, and Inspire
At Charterhouse Malaysia, our mission is to create an educational environment where students and teachers can study, create, and inspire, enabling them to develop their abilities and build better lives for themselves and others. We are dedicated to nurturing the potential within each individual, preparing them for success in an ever-changing world.
Study: Fostering Independent Thinking and Lifelong Learning
At Charterhouse Malaysia, we believe that scholarship is the pursuit of knowledge and understanding through rigorous intellectual inquiry. Our programme is designed to promote independent thinking and equip students with the skills to think critically, solve problems, adapt to new situations, and become lifelong learners. Our teachers are trained in pedagogies that emphasise the development of critical thinking skills, and we incorporate Spectra Smarts, our intelligence-based framework, into our teaching methods.
The Spectra Smarts framework encompasses seven strands of intelligence, including academic and learning intelligence, social intelligence, meta-contextual intelligence, meta-subjective intelligence, meta-knowing intelligence, meta-cognitive intelligence, and perceived self-efficacy. By actively engaging with the material through questioning, discussion, analysis, and debate, our students develop their ability to think independently, make connections between different concepts, and critically evaluate information.
We use formative assessment to support our students’ development, providing feedback and guidance for improvement. Through reflection and learning from mistakes, our students recognise their strengths and areas for growth. Our goal is to develop independent thinkers who are equipped with the skills to adapt to a rapidly changing world and become lifelong learners.
Create: Nurturing Creative Thinking and Problem-Solving
Creative thinking is central to our educational philosophy at Charterhouse Malaysia. We believe that through creative thinking, students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills essential for success in the modern world. We employ a range of pedagogies, including project-based and problem-based learning, to foster creative thinking.
Design thinking, a methodology that emphasises empathy, ideation, prototyping, and testing, is integrated into our curriculum. By applying design thinking, our students become innovative problem solvers who are better equipped to tackle complex challenges in their future careers. Independent learning projects and our Incubator further nurture creativity, allowing students to explore their interests, develop skills, and build confidence.
Inspire: Cultivating Leadership and Making a Positive Impact
At Charterhouse Malaysia, we believe in empowering our students to become change-makers within the school and beyond. We provide opportunities for active participation in the school and wider community, inspiring students to develop leadership skills and a sense of purpose. Our students embody essential qualities of responsible citizens, including responsibility, moral courage, perseverance, open-mindedness, and kindness.
Through the Charterhouse Forum and Charterhouse Community Partnership, our students take on leadership roles and actively participate in co-curricular activities and community outreach initiatives. By inspiring their peers and positively impacting the community, our students become role models and make a positive difference in the world. These experiences develop transferable life skills that set our students apart in university and job applications.
Charterhouse Malaysia encourages active participation in the school and wider community, nurturing inspiring leaders who create positive impacts on their communities. By providing opportunities for growth, creativity, and leadership, we prepare our students to make a lasting difference in their future endeavours.
