Although the academic curriculum adheres to the formal disciplines
of the International Baccalaureate, there are few formal classrooms.
This reflects the college's philosophy that education is a dynamic
and continuous process which should not be restricted either to the
narrow confines of a traditional academic classroom, or to an overly
rigid timetable. An important aspect of education at Pearson College
is the constant intellectual and social interaction between students
and staff of totally different cultural backgrounds. The five student
residences and other facilities are designed to create a comfortable
environment where students can share their varied international experiences.
Students are from a diversity of religious beliefs and are encouraged
to deepen their sense of spiritual values through inter-faith occasions,
special programs on the different religious of the world and opportunities
to worship in the surrounding communities.
The college year commences during the first week of September, and
ends in late May following the IB examinations. Selection is made
on the basis of both academic and non-academic qualifications. As
a general rule students should have completed the equivalent of eleven
years of North American schooling, and preferably be between 16 and
17 years of age.
