Inspired is delighted to welcome ACG Schools into its growing international network of 51 schools. ACG Schools include six leading independent schools in New Zealand, Indonesia and Vietnam. The schools provide a world-class, student-centric approach to learning, offering high academic standards and an extensive programme including sports, performing arts and technology. ACG Schools has separated from ACG Education’s tertiary education division, which provides foundational study programmes for university partners as well as a range of vocational colleges. This group has been rebranded to UP Education.

ACG School’s personalised approach to holistic learning - where students are encouraged to discover their unique strengths and passions in academia, sports and the performing arts - made the schools a natural fit for Inspired. The addition of ACG will expand the Inspired footprint to over 18 countries and will enable ACG students and staff to benefit from the support of world-class experts and access to state-of-the-art learning platforms.

ACG Schools CEO, Clarence van der Wel, said that the partnership brought several benefits to ACG students and staff. “They will have opportunities to participate in international exchanges with Inspired schools all over the world and gain access to innovative leaders. Inspired’s progressive approach to education is closely aligned with the ACG Schools’ philosophy, which makes this such an exceptional partnership.”

Inspired is led by experts with experience in all major international school qualifications. Like ACG, Inspired schools are co-educational and independent, with a focus on helping students to achieve their maximum potential in a nurturing and progressive academic environment.

Inspired Founder, Chairman & CEO, Nadim M. Nsouli, said that Inspired was honoured and excited to welcome ACG Schools into the Inspired family. “Each of our schools, while rooted in its own community, forms part of a dynamic global network, providing regular opportunities for the exchange of ideas, and of students and teachers. This is precisely the sort of global education that we know will be an advantage in tomorrow's world.” He added “this is an exciting opportunity for both Inspired and ACG and we look forward to welcoming the students, parents and staff of ACG into our family of schools. We will work with the leadership team to build upon the schools' impressive history to continue to provide ACG families with a world class international education."
