The Academy of Principals (Singapore) [APS] represents a unique and vibrant partnership with the key players in Singapore education: the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the National Institute of Education (NIE) to provide an unparalleled level of support for our school leaders as they lead our schools into a new and exciting era of educational changes.

More importantly, the Academy serves as an important platform for our school principals to reach out to local and overseas colleagues from affiliated associations, institutes of higher learning, corporate and industry partners to share ideas, debate issues and discuss policy initiatives, all of which will contribute towards building sustainable leadership through strong and mutually-beneficial networks.
