Ascensia Academy


Ascensia Academy, formerly known as HUA Language Centre & HUA Business School, is one of Singapore’s well-established language and preparatory schools. It was created from a merger of two homegrown quality institutions – the HUA Group of Companies and SIMA Group of Companies in December 2009. The merger brought together at the helm, a group of highly qualified academicians with the passion for quality education and driven by the mission to transform lives and empower minds.

With a history dating back to 1992, Ascensia Academy has over the years built up a reputation in Asia for its proven success in preparing international students for study in the Singapore government schools and for the GCE “O” and “A” Examinations conducted by the University of Cambridge. Its consistency in producing good results year after year has transformed many lives and accounted for numerous success stories. Today, Ascensia Academy is the recognised name in this region for those wishing to have a good foundation in Singapore’s world-renowned education system or simply to have a good grounding in the English Language.

Ascensia’s success honed over many years of research and practice is backed by credentials and recognition. These are just some of our achievements:

  • Edutrust Certified and registered with The Council for Private Education

  • Awarded the Singapore Quality Class (SQC) for Private Education Organisation (PEOs)

  • Accredited by the Education Department, the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China;

  • First School in Singapore to conduct preparatory courses for international students enrolling in government schools;
  • Winner of the Inaugural Singapore Education Awards (Best Enrichment Programme) in 2007.

Since we started preparatory courses for international students, more than 70% of our students have passed through our doors successfully before entering local schools. More than 90% of our students have been successfully prepared for the “O” level examinations and then onward to tertiary education both locally and abroad.
