Walking into Astra Academy, your attention is immediately drawn to a sculptural art form at the heart of the campus, called the ‘Astra Absorbatory’. The flowing curves of the Absorbatory represent a device (both tangible and figurative) that gathers ideas and inspiration in the sky and from our surroundings. The Absorbatory represents how Astra Academy strives to bring the stars closer, with an understanding that much in the way of honest hard work needs to be done to challenge and stretch ourselves to realise full potential and aspirations.
Astra Academy is the newest member of the Kids’ Academy family of schools, who have an outstanding reputation built over 18 years of international school experience in Bangkok. Opening this August 2021 for Years 1-3 (Age 5-7) and Years 7-9 (Age 11-13), as the Primary and Secondary schools grow Astra will eventually teach Year 1 through to Year 13 and feature qualified British curriculum teachers and highly competitive tuition and fees. The school has a state of the art, futuristic themed campus with impressive facilities based right in the heart of central Sukhumvit in Ekkamai soi 14.
Astra represents an innovative approach for international schools in Bangkok, bringing decades of expertise as international school operators (and parents). Teaching and learning are based on the British Curriculum, with an emphasis on nurturing real world experiences and skills as well as future-proof thinking to adapt to a fast-changing world.
