Transylvania College

Transylvania College is a child-centered school, offering a full educational journey from nursery through high school.

It is our vision to guide each student on a global journey toward becoming a mindful leader and we are committed to our mission to help all of our students to "Have a voice. Make a difference. Discover their spark!"

We believe in teaching the whole child and we know that each child is special in his or her own way and they all have greatness. That is why throughout our admission process we seek potential and promise. Our teachers and our students’ efforts have been rewarded by them earning the best test scores in the region, according to the statistics issued by the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) and Cambridge International Examination results. We focus on creating a learning environment where each child feels safe, where the students feel valued and respected, where they feel that their opinion matters and they are empowered to grow. By the time they reach high school, our students are confident in the choices they make and they are able to embark on a personalised educational track, making their own decisions regarding their future studies and professional development. The teachers, the counselors and the leadership team are all actively invested in our students success and we are all carefully guiding their way, mentoring them on the path to personal success. A positive and open communication with the parents is essential in this process and we are proud to say that the sense

Our teachers are prepared to encourage independent reasoning, critical thinking and successful learning habits and to ensure that all of our students achieve their full potential. All of our teaching staff enjoys professional development opportunities that are in line with the most modern educational practices. Our great children to teachers ratio facilitates interactive lessons, personalized feedback and adaptive teaching and learning.

We go above and beyond in being supportive and caring, while delivering outstanding educational training and opportunities for all of our students. Our community is growing, our student body is now up to 650 pupils from 34 countries, from 5 continents.

“We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict, what are we going to do with that one chance?”

Our teachers take time to know their students academically and personally, being prepared to encourage independent reasoning, critical thinking and successful learning habits while ensuring that all of our students achieve their full potential. All of our teaching staff enjoys professional development opportunities that are in line with the most modern educational practices. Our great pupils: teacher ratio facilitates interactive lessons, personalised feedback and adaptive teaching and learning, taking into account the needs of every single child.

Transylvania College makes a strong contribution to the local community by creating a learning environment that promotes the understanding of multiculturalism, global issues and belief systems. We link many activities to social awareness. Our students and teachers are involved in a range of social actions, from raising funds for medical institutions - during Money Week our students raised money to buy medical equipment for the emergency ward of the local pediatrics hospital - to helping build homes for those in need, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Cluj.

We strongly believe that excellence in education may be achieved only as a partnership with the parents. That is why we provide multiple communication channels to the parents in our community and we ensure that we take into consideration their feedback and also their concerns. We consistently offer our parents opportunities to learn more about how we teach, or about how we approach certain activities. The parenting seminars and social events we organize throughout the school year are an excellent way to get to know each other and to welcome new members into our big Transylvania College family.
