Our response to COVID-19
While we have had to adjust to the COVID-19 virus and its global impact, education continues strong at EF Academy. Across the world, our students are continuing their studies with the full online support of our faculty and staff, and our Safe Learning Promise will ensure nothing gets in the way of our students’ education come September.
Our schools in New York, Oxford and Torbay are following an Online Learning program that ensures the continuance of our students’ education without interruption. Students are carrying on with their courses through online classes, assignments and close contact with teachers facilitated by various digital platforms. This equally rigorous academic program delivered via Online Learning ensures our students continue to achieve their best.
Our community atmosphere and school spirit have shifted away from campus but have by no means disappeared. Thanks to the dedication of our faculty and staff, our usual on-campus activities are continuing virtually through club and school-wide events, such as online movie nights, Cooking Club sessions and a digital reimagining of our annual Culture Fair to name a few. Additional support is always available to our students, so our teachers are also setting time aside each week for personal check-ins with students who need guidance.
Meanwhile, our preparations for the next academic year are well under way and we are taking additional measures to provide families with even more support. Our Safe Learning Promise guarantees that school will resume in September no matter what – in the safety of our campuses or at home for those who need it. Following the advice of their respective local governments and health authorities, our schools have created additional health protocols to ensure the safety of our students.

EF Academy remains as committed as ever to delivering a world-class education to all students. Our staff and faculty will continue to do whatever is necessary to make sure our students graduate and obtain their diplomas feeling ready to embrace a future full of global opportunities.
