Sekolah Cita Persada (SCP) was established with its noble purpose of sharing the light in Indonesia by educating the minds of the young children and molding them into individuals who will excel not only academically but with strong character qualities. SCP started to receive its first students of the Primary level in 2006 while offering Indonesian’s national curriculum enriched with the Singaporean methods of education. In the subsequent educational process, SCP introduced the eclectic methods of education, which combined the Concept-Based Approach along with the Project-Based Approach and Montessori Approach.
At the beginning of 2009, SCP Preschool and Kindergarten was introduced to the public following the decision to terminate the franchise of Cambridge Child Development Center from Singapore. The main reason was because of the intention to introduce the new Creative Curriculum from the United States which combined with the Reggio Emilia Project-Based Approach. In that same year, SCP had also established an informal partnership with Rivervale Primary School, Singapore to add values for the service which provided the opportunities for the students to visit our partner school in Singapore. Also, SCP Primary had been chosen as the examination center for Young Learners English Tests in that same year.
Realizing the importance of abiding with Indonesia’s government standard, SCP Primary and Kindergarten pursued to acquire accreditation from the government. Finally, SCP Kindergarten and SCP Primary received “A” Accreditation from Badan Akreditasi Nasional Sekolah/Madrasah on October 21, 2012. This had been the significant evidence of the continuous effort of SCP to aim for the best and give the best quality of education to its students. We also emphasized the importance of partnering with parents and introduced our Home-Visit Program for its SCP Preschool and Kindergarten.
SCP Secondary (Grade 7) was opened on June 2013 to answer the demands for higher education for the children in Cinere, Depok area. SCP Secondary had also offered various exciting programs to prepare the students for the challenges of the 21st century. The students are exposed to acquire learning skills such as innovative, creative thinking, problem solving, and global minded.
On July 8, 2014, SCP Primary had been authorized as Cambridge Centre with ID 331 which allowed the school to officially offered a prestige international curriculum from UK. Subsequently, SCP Primary received its SPK (Satuan Pendidikan Kerjasama) status as required by the Government of Indonesian on May 2015 which allowed SCP to officially offer the combination of the national curriculum along with the international curriculum.
