Founded: 1974

Hwa Chong Institution (HCI) is one of Singapore’s premier Independent Schools, with a rich history of over 90 years. The school’s mission is to develop leaders in research, industry and government. To date, the Institution has produced 51 President’s Scholars (the country’s most prestigious scholarship). The school offers a seamless and broad-based 6-year Integrated Programme. Every year, we prepare about 1,200 students for the Singapore-Cambridge GCE Advanced-Level Examinations. Virtually all our students go on to pursue undergraduate studies, with the top 40% of each cohort being offered admission to top universities such as Oxford and Cambridge; Ivy League universities in the United States.; Peking, Tsinghua and Fudan universities in China, as well as Medicine, Law and scholars programmes in the local universities. Between 2009 and 2012, fourteen Hwa Chong alumni topped Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College London, University College London, King’s College London, London School of Economics, the world-renowned US Military Academy at West Point, and Shanghai Fudan University. Hwa Chong is the first and only Independent School in Singapore to set up a Beijing satellite campus and pioneer the FutureSchools@Singapore. For achieving world-class standards of excellence in education, HCI was awarded the Singapore Quality Award.
