Program Details

Typical Day

A typical day at SEP follows a similar schedule to that of King’s Academy; students attend classes in the morning and early afternoon, engage in co-curricular activities in the afternoons and have time set aside in the evenings for homework and reading.

Throughout the day, students are surrounded by English being spoken, whether it is at morning school meetings, sit-down meals, in class, during their free time and in the dormitories. This provides students with the opportunity to not only learn English in an academic setting, but also support that learning by hearing and speaking it throughout their time at SEP.

A typical day at SEP includes three to four hours of English language skills (reading, writing, comprehension, speaking and listening), and 40 minutes of training in information technology (computer skills), as well as planned activities and leisure time. Afternoon recreational activities include sports such as swimming, handball, basketball, football, tennis, and arts and crafts. In the evenings, with teacher support, students do their class work and read. Students are encouraged to speak English throughout the day.

Boarding

SEP students are housed for the duration of the program in single bedrooms within King’s Academy’s single-gender dormitories, where they are under 24-hour supervision by teachers and counselors, who reside in the dorms with them. With an on-staff physician and nurse, we have direct access to emergency medical services.

Faculty

A number of experienced teachers and counselors from Jordan and abroad administer the program and reside in individual dorm rooms alongside the students to provide them with constant mentoring, support and supervision.
